There are very few white officers on my team. A token few here and there.

Taking this ruling at face value...I wonder if that is by design or coincidence.

Is there any data on the racial break down of recent promotions and hirings?

Hey Ellis now that the county has been found guilty how about firing those involved that still work here?!?!?!?!?!??!

If you keep them I bet the next lawsuit will be even easier to win and have a bigger pay out.

Look at that psycho smiling and holding up his fingers in a peace symbol, as if he were victorious. Of course the defendants would say that the judge was biased, and that the low award is validation that they did nothing wrong, cuz they're that delusional.
But the bottom line is, they created a hostile work environment and have to pay up. Sad that they won't change their behavior as a result, and I wish the plaintiffs had been given more. (Do they get even a dime, after paying attorneys fees?? Probably not. THAT is disgusting. The lawyers will be celebrating extravagantly I'm sure, while these peoples' lives were decimated.)

WTF speaking of negligence, word around the pumps is that Tonya Dedrick is going to be in charge of training. Have we forgotten all the worthless officers she has been responsible for getting hired when running the background unit. Then trashing all the veterans here as a worthless Asst. Chief under TE-BO that resulted in Te-Bo hiring all the APD people. Even Te-Bo eventually saw through her crap. It has been bad enough as it is and now for sure there will never be any worthless asses washed out of training. You people in training are in for a rude awakening under this tyrant. Wake up O'Brien.

Lee May, your a joke.

Anyone catch Lee May's stupid comment? Instead of acknowledging what Vernon and his cronies did was wrong, he blames the judge. Looks like nothing is going to change around here! Maybe we need some more lawsuits!

Its still the same department , we have a few tokens , but the only thing that has really changed is the names.

I love the Sheila Edwards show.

Good news boys, with that small of a payout we will be getting our raises back!
Im guessing we now have a surplus of cash that can be released, I can hardly wait.

Leave it to Vernon to try to spin this! He's claiming victory because of the dollar amount awarded to the Plaintiffs who WON THE CASE!

Vernon, did you miss the part of the verdict where they said you committed racial discrimination? Just because the jury didn't spank the county and you with tons of PUNITIVE DAMAGES doesn't mean you won!

Ellis may call this a victory for DeKalb, but I doubt the county attorneys were partying last night.
I am staying out of this one temporally mates! Y'all know why....
