The LA Times story actually left out the worst of those email “jokes” that former BPD employee Tom Angel sent through the City of Burbank’s email system.
Guess what? They weren’t all jokes.
Does the city council know about these expressed sentiments? Cops with this much anger and cultural misunderstanding rattling around inside them can’t be on your payroll. How quickly does it get converted into operating policy?
Nor can their apologists and facilitators.
He was that motivated? He’s obviously in favor of ethnic profiling on the street.
These aren’t jokes. They’re bigoted hate mail full of ugly stereotypes whose intention is to whip up intolerance and adversity to one chosen religious group.
Is this in any way how other Burbank cops face the world? Are these kneejerk sentiments part of their cultural toolkit?
This is what Muslims are about, eh? And this was the guy who was brought in to help “clean up the department”?
