The Leader’s been doing a really good job in getting on top of this situation. It’s too bad the people we’re paying aren’t…
After a top Los Angeles County sheriff’s official resigned amid mounting criticism over emails he forwarded mocking Muslims, blacks, Latinos, women and others while he worked at the Burbank Police Department, local leaders voiced concerns about how Burbank officials handled the discovery of the correspondence two years ago…
After reviewing them at the request of the Leader, [official BPD monitor Michael] Gennaco asked [Chief] LaChasse for a meeting to evaluate the agency’s response and ensure that officers are aware of the city’s email policies.That’s on the books for next week.
“Unfortunately, it’s sometimes too easy to compose or forward an email without thinking a whole lot about it,” Gennaco said, adding that the degree of culpability varies, depending on whether the sender composed the message or passed it along.
Sorry bub. It’s the same damn thing.
Possibly much worse, because he had the time to frigging read it first.
No wonder nothing got done about this problem. This Gennaco is the same guy who’s officially charged with making sure the BPD stays straight. So how come this wasn’t reported to him on the fly?
According to today’s article, this is the first he’s heard about it. He never saw the emails until now, and only thanks to the paper. Again:

Who kept them from him at the time? It’s been his JOB to officially oversee departmental problems on a regular basis, especially in the area of possible discrimination.
The Burbank City Council has been spending tens of thousands of dollars a year to make sure that he does so. Are they happy about subsidizing his ignorance here?
We’ll ask the same question again. Does anyone in their right mind (and who’s not a city apologist or shill) really believe the claim that Angel didn’t “forward” these noxious things to his other buddies and co-workers within the City of Burbank’s email system?
But we’ll never know, because City Attorney Albano is blocking the names and email addresses of the recipients.
She’s sure earning her money now isn’t she? Protecting the flock.
