Editor, you say: "In other words, city employees who might know that an internal affairs investigation is being conducted are forbidden from discussing the matter with outsiders and could be disciplined if they do."
Given the above remark, will you investigate the necessary punishment that McIntyre deserves for speaking in public, with a non-employee, about a confidential personnel matter? Obviously, there has been a lot of good for *you* and your publication that resulted from McIntyre breaking the city's rules, but his doing so is also a newsworthy story.
It's obvious that what Vasquez did was illegal but what McIntyre did was unethical, yet there is no editorial from you about that. Perhaps next week we might read one?
