We don’t know yet!
But apparently it is a secret!
THE USUAL SUSPECTS: 🙂 🙂
Officer Fuller wouldn’t even tell me whether or not the Lydia Taylor IA Case was one of the 5 Open Cases from 2015, or one of the 5 Open Cases from 2014, so I wonder what is going on.
When I read this story in the SR back on April 25th, 2015 by Nina Culver, based on her story I figured she had a copy of the Lydia Taylor IA report and I was kind of waiting for it to be posted on the SPD website so I could read it, the SR never posted a copy and as far as I can tell it was never posted on the SPD website.
We do know from PRRs that there was some kind of an agreement between Mell Taylor and Frank Straub, what exactly we don’t know, nor do we know if it had anything to do with Lydia Taylor.
PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK WITH TIM SCHWERING!!
Tim Schwering is of course one of the many exempt hires Frank Straub and David Condon made, and is the individual that Mayor Condon decided we should pay for to go to the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. There is a lot of speculation about what plans Mayor Condon and Jim McDevitt have for Mr. Schwering. But here is what Tim Schwering has given us as far as transparency and the SPD.
This is an excerpt from the COPS/DOJ Report:
SPD has made various documents, such as the policy manual and use of force reports, available to the public and has updated the public regarding changes to or within the organization. In addition, SPD has eliminated the backlog of requests from the public and is seeking to expand resources that will further in crease the transparency of the organization.
SPD has posted all 2013 and 2014 use of force reports, completed IA investigations from 2011 to 2014, and posted SPD’s policy manual to its website. In March 2014, the director of strategic initiatives started delivering Office of Professional Accountability monthly updates to the Public Safety Committee; these are also available to the public on the department’s website.
The easy way to fake it is to come up with novel excuses to keep the cases from becoming public or even bothering to investigate them, unless of course someone with authority calls you on it.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
The Juvenile Arrest CPS Report Cover:
(We don’t want the Juvenile or CPS Case just the IA case with the necessary redactions, please!)
Kick it to Heather at Human Resources that way we don’t have to post it!
Heck why post a report when just a few sentences will do?
Whew… we got them to retire or resign so we don’t have to worry about doing an investigation that might make us look bad!
