Renton police officers demoted for video
It appears the drama in Renton, WA is over and the individual (or in this case individuals) for posting cartoonish videos mocking the police department has been identified and punished.
The 87-page report condemns the sergeant and the the officers, including a deputy chief, who knew about the video.
The sergeant created an anonymous e-mail to post the video, the report said, and a deputy chief advised him to post it from the library to keep from getting caught.
At this point, it’s a question as to whether the officers involved will file a suit claiming their videos were a form of free speech and that the demotions were punitive.
