No, you are not asss-kissing. You are accurately describing THEN and NOW.<quoted text>
We know first-hand the meaning of 'leading by intimidation', or more tongue-in-cheek 'the beatings will continue until morale improves'.
We can finally breathe a collective sigh of relief (or even simply just collectively BREATHE), knowing that Al Lamberti is an experienced, level-headed cop who CAN AND WILL lead our agency THE RIGHT WAY ... furthermore, he doesn't want his name plastered all over everything, because he understands the position he holds is not about him.
I only wish that the citizens of Broward County understand what an outstanding choice Governor Crist has made in the temporary appointment of Sheriff Lamberti. Make it a point to meet with Sheriff Lamberti when you can, take a look at his background, and talk to other cops who have worked with him for decades. I, and every last one of them I know have the highest respect for him, and his work ethic.
There are those who will post here, claiming I'm a kiss-asss, however I'm just one of a couple thousand deputies in the agency who feel similarly. These are just my thoughts based on my personal experience.
Major Lamberti is a calm, rational, professional and BSO is very fortunate to have him.
I am smiling for the BSO family and citizens of Broward County.
Jenne and his regime is out of there finally. I never thought the day would come.
My dad calls it karma.
