discussions about the allegations. I was "thrown out" of the office. After two more episodes of that nature, the routine was established. They called me in. I pulled out my recorder. They terminated the session. I realized they were on the run. I gradually escalated to the point of suing the persons who deliberately sought to defame. Five years before I retired, the biggest fear that the department had was that another fool would show up with another allegation. Dirty Harry, without a recorder, would have ground up and fed to the media dogs before the sun went down.
