    If I were to have an issue with my employer I would not expect the city to hear or be involved with it and it is asinine that the police feel they have the right to air their dirty laundry to the whole city. It is NOT everybody else's business. Funny how when you are held accountable and expected to work you start complaining - work like the rest of us making a hell of a lot less money!!
