Where do you think you live? Burbank is where it all happened to begin with,
Top Los Angeles County sheriff’s official has resigned amid mounting criticism over emails he sent mocking Muslims, blacks, Latinos, women and others from his work account during his previous job with the Burbank Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department announced Sunday.
After previously saying that he had no immediate plans to discipline his chief of staff, Sheriff Jim McDonnell said in a statement that he had accepted Tom Angel’s resignation and intended to turn the controversy into a “learning opportunity” for his department employees…
Some who worked with Angel in Burbank defended him, calling him a respectful leader who comfortably interacted with different ethnic groups.
“I saw nothing but the highest levels of conduct,” said Burbank City Councilman David Gordon.
Gordon has some big explaining to do here. Was he just relaying his own relationship with Angel, or was he actually defending him as the paper says?
If it was only the former then he needs to raise some serious hell about being misinterpreted by the Times. Otherwise it makes him sound like he has no or little problem with those Burbank emails.
As to the rest, watch for “discretion” to be the big word of the evening. Because no one else is going to raise hell about anything.
Which of course is why these things happen in Burbank.
