Lots of retirements in the APD it seems.

Editor:

is there a reason teh link to the full story is a dead link? Is APD monkeying with computers again?

Great question Menlo Voter...the link is dead. I'm just glad they finally made a story about it. I announced it on my FB page a couple of days ago.

Editor's note: The link should be fixed.

All I can say is, about freakin' time Atherton. This interim chief is a far better chief than you folks have had in your "permanent" chiefs. If you really want to keep your police department and want one you don't have to be afraid of or concerned about, you need to hire a chief from outside that will kick some butt like Chief Flint clearly has. Sherman Hall should be next on the "retirement" list.

Unfortunately, other than having to retire "early," DeVlugt has gotten off easy for his attrocious violation of public trust.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe refused to investigate or charge Officer Dean DeVlught.

What a shame for this to happen in San Mateo County, that is not discretion.

No DeVlught isn't the only bad apple, yes, Sherman Hall should be retired.
