Lingering concerns on D.C. speed cameras find deaf ear
Such reticence by the police department and the city’s elected officials is troubling, said Steven N. Berk, managing editor of The Corporate Observer, a consumer rights publication produced by practicing attorneys.
“Sgt. Mark Robinson’s experience mirrors what many local whistleblowers are rewarded with for their honesty: retaliation,” Mr. Berk wrote. “Local governments affect people more directly and yet those, such as Sgt. Robinson, who try to help prevent ‘waste, fraud and illegal conduct,’ as the D.C. Ethics Manual states, are often demoted or lose their jobs altogether.
“Hats off to Sgt. Robinson for putting up with D.C.’s retaliatory reassignment and persisting in his quest to expose the [program’s] mismanagement.”
