In a sense, it’s an incredible story. While other police departments are using the web to shame–and even punish to a certain extent–the people they arrest, David O. Brown is using twitter to announce staff firings for Dallas. This may cross into shame and lumping on the punishment, but it’s also a great chance for their PD to prove they are taking action against bad cops.
Something which a lot of us feel is severely lacking.
Example taken from the article:
I have terminated 911 Call Taker Moises Limon today for driving while under the influence and not reporting his arrest to his supervisor.
Under Civil Service rules, Mr. Limon has a right to appeal his discipline.
