… Sgt. Dan Cerar’s frequent reference to victims of crimes as “whores, sluts, and liars;” exclusion of female detectives from the male “dress down” Thursday shooting practice; … the patter and practice by male detectives (Fletes and Hershman) of referring to female detectives as “sugar tits” and/or commenting on the “racks” of female victims, co-workers, and advocates; reference by Lt. Rick O’Hanlon that the Sex Crimes unit has a “chromosome problem”…
So if you don’t feel like reading all 12 pages of the complaint, the above is just one of the shining examples of the issues within the San Diego PD. What I find most disturbing is that this was in the Sex Crimes unit.
These individuals have absolutely no respect for women, and I wouldn’t doubt that each of these beer swilling, crotch rotting, roid raging, jocks regularly abused and mistreated women while they were in college. I don’t see how anyone like that should be in law enforcement at all, much less in direct contact with people who will have gone through some of the worst mental trauma imaginable.
Seriously I want to continue the rant but the rage is just too much.
The names getting the honorable mention:
- Sgt. Dan Cerar
- Det. Carl Hershman
- Det. Edward Fletes
- Lt. Rick O’Hanlon
Because when a woman is raped it’s totally her fault and the dress she was wearing. It’s true because the cop said so!
