Ed Flint was brought in to Atherton to clean up the police department. Granted, DeVlught is gone. But he wasn't the only problem at the PD.
Last month, the Wiest/Lewis dominated city council, owned by the police union, decided to destroy all records of complaints Atherton residents made against officers, deeming them trivial.
Immediately thereafter, David Metzger was promoted to sergeant.
[Portion removed; don't accuse people of improper or illegal behavior without evidence.]
This is an individual who does not deserve to be an Atherton police officer (or a police officer anywhere), let alone a sergeant.
This is why records of complaints should not have been destroyed.
