A three part series

Eureka depositions retrace police investigation; officials' testimony shed light on harassment allegations, ensuing 'global' investigation
...Hansen filed the suit in November 2009, alleging that the city, and specifically Tyson, vindictively and unreasonably delayed and diluted an investigation into complaints that Hansen was being harassed... vs. ...he best way to address Hansen's complaint, and others coming from the department, was through a global investigation... At some point, Christie testified, Tyson decided to launch a single global investigation that would address Hansen's harassment allegations along with other allegations and complaints coming from within the department, including allegations of race, age, gender and religious discrimination. Tyson testified that he felt the global investigation would be most efficient in addressing the concerns coming from within the department, and Christie testified that she agreed with that decision.

”We can do individual investigations from now until forever, or we can do one global investigation, and, hopefully, address everyone's concerns,” Christie testified...."


Makes sense to me.

I am trying to be charitable. This is worse than the Inquirer. (Sp?). Wtf is up at the TS? No more MJ articles? All these folks are sick. Hansen, Glass , Nielson, and what the hell is a dispatcher and the rest of them going back east for? A million dollars on this? Disgusting. And major roasts to the TS for not even asking questions.

I wonder when anyone is going to address Ms. Hansens's conduct while employed at the EPD.

Anyone at the EPD with more than five years on the job could provide plenty of information or facts if only they were asked the questions. Or maybe I should say asked the right questions.

This issue is not the one way street it has been made out to be.

If this actually goes to court Ms. Hansen will be seen in a different light.

Dave Tyson apparently wanted a "global" investigation into the EPD.If your concerns weren't asked about,then his efforts were partly a waste of time.My guess is that they were,and nothing incriminating against her was discovered.But I guess we shall see what comes next.

Your guess is most likely wrong Mark. But there is no real surprise in that.

And yes we shall see. It would be nice to hear all the facts, the real facts.
