Its funny how the two can be friends and go out toghether as friends for years and then all of a sudden its a hostle work place.
Its not like he asked for sex or anything like that--it was just the way he talks that is not liked. So its not really sexual harrassment is it?
He didnt treat her any different than he treated anyone else. She is just soft and couldnt take it so her answer ids to file a sexual harassment complaint.
My advise is dont even be friends with these females at this department because soon as you put some heat on some of them you will get burned. I am not saying all females in this department are like that but about 3/4 are.
This should be a good lesson to everyone. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE!
No matter what you think, when you tell someone to leave you alone, they should respect that choice, no matter if your friends or not.
Why are the females always blamed?
Maybe the females could say "if the guys just do there job and leave the females alone reference off duty things, There would be no problem with harassment complaints or any other type of complaints except work related if they are not doing the job
Depends on what was said, sexually harrassment is verbal and hands on.
I guess since a demand for sex was not involved the comment of him spanking her is worth a week of suspension but no more and that is a stretch. But boy will the media crucify him and the Chief who tried to be fair about it.
Lets see, It was investigated by one of his friends who came to the conclusion all three counts were sustained. I think that holds a lot of water. He has 12 sustained complaints againt him, It was recommedned demotion to patrol officer and all he got was a slap on the wrist. WOW. What ever happened to the city rules and regs that 3 disciplines in 12 months constituted termination. I guess thats only if they dont like you.
just a note:
Please read the IA and after doing so, see if you would want your g/friend or wife to deal with the comments, actions that he did. Comments that were made were sexual in nature and they would not have been said to a male coworker. If he treated male coworkers like the complaint states, he would have been alleged being homo...
He is a womanizer always has always will be!! No wonder his wife banged out on him. Just like when he was creeping with Conell and her fiance caught them doing deeds. He needs to go.
If you read the Hearld Tribune tomm. you will see all the past discipline for sure! There is not one reader that will not be calling the City Council and demanding his firing, along with the Chief. Dont bother calling the Mayor because Akemon called him and got nothing but a vacation. All you Poston supporters made this happen, even though Evers is a good ole boy, he would have done what was right in this case.
Depends on what you define what a womanizer is. I think he thinks he is a womanizer but in reality he is not even close to who he thinks he is. It's easy to fiqure out. Just have a conversation with him and his intelligence level is clear.
These actions have been a part of him since he started at BPD. He is nothing but a libility to the city. Instead of admin trying to fiqure who could be let go for budget reasons, get rid of the problem and save $75,000+ a year and benefit the department as well. The chief shows his lack of leadership once again. I thought the chief stated Poston doesn't tell him what to do or tell him how to run the deaprtment?
40 hours suspension for a friend deciding not to be a friend anymore is plenty. She created the situation and now complains when she does not want his friendship anymore.
I agree with the Chief get a real complaint to demote or fire him not this one that smells.
The rumer is that the herald tribune will be investigating why the depatment didnt do anything to a certain troubled SGT that recently had even more serious S E X allegations made against him...another friend of Wayne?

BPD lieutenant suspended in harassment case
By BETH BURGER
BRADENTON - A Bradenton Police Department lieutenant will be suspended and have to undergo sensitivity training after sexually harassing a sergeant, according to an internal affairs investigation released today.
An investigation found Lt. Darrell Akemon, 44, sexually harassed Sgt. Nicol Scholer, who filed a complaint stating she felt she was the victim of teasing, insulting and sexual remarks made by Akemon.
Scholer documented numerous incidents involving Akemon beginning on March 19, 2007, through Jan. 17, 2008.
One of the incidents Scholer documented in a 15-page complaint included Akemon complaining about her not changing her name in the police database after getting a divorce.
According to Scholer, Akemon had said, "Do I have to come down there and spank you?"
Akemon said in a interview with investigators he did not recall saying that.
Akemon will be suspended from patrol for 40 hours without pay.
Major William Tokajer recommended Akemon be demoted to a patrol officer, but Chief Michael Radzilowski opted for a lesser disciplinary action.
Major Jeff Lewis, spokesman, said "Considering the totality of the investigation, (the chief) felt the discipline recommended was too harsh, considering they had a personal relationship up until the time of the complaint
Here is the thing you have the IA Sgt. making charges of Sex Harrassment against someone and nothing happens...what is a peon officer suppose to think about filing a complaint against him if this all the IA Sgt. gets???
