david gibbs 16 hours, 48 minutes ago on Former Steamboat police detective has strong words for City Council

By not suspending Chief Rae and Chief Deputy Delvalle after corroborated allegations of gross misconduct, Ms. Hinsvark fails to reasonably protect current employees from further victimization. Due to the nature of the allegation, this is not only unethical but it does meet the fiduciary obligation the City of Steamboat Springs has to its other employees. Legally Ms. Hinsvark has the right to suspend Mr. Rae and Mr. Delvalle, but Ms. Hinsvark does not have the discretion to choose whether or not the City provides their employees with a safe non-hostile work environment.

david gibbs 20 hours, 42 minutes ago on Meg Bentley: Letter was ‘un-American’

I personally know victims of Mr. Rae's misconduct. Not only was the "formers" letter appropriate but it was necessary. Unfortunately the letter wasn't enough to convince Ms. Hinsvark to do what is necessary to immediately insure people do not continue to be victimized. Her decision to allow Mr. Rae and Mr. Delvalle to remain in charge of the SSPD, at this time, is reckless and unethical. It seems Ms. Bentley is suffering from that same lapse in judgement as Ms. Hinsvark and worrying more about the alleged perpetrator than the alleged victims. All citizens not only have the right to speak out publicly and advocate for justice they have an obligation.

Rae and Delvalle are already getting special treatment. If any officer on the SSPD had allegations against them, of this breath and depth, and corroborated by the number of people that have confirmed this pattern of misconduct, they would be fired. No paid leave, no investigation, no severance. They need to resign and hope they don't have civil or criminal charges brought against them. An eight hour investigation by a private investigator would produce at least twenty people to confirm a long standing pattern of misconduct and abuse of power. More than enough to dismiss any employee. Why are the people at the top getting such a high level of preferential treatment? This is not rocket science. Why does Hinsvark insist on treating these two men better than the rest of the 300 employees of the City of Steamboat Springs?

If Joel Ray had earned respect and trust from his co workers, employees and community members during his long law enforcement career, people would be out defending him. If Dave Kleiber was just a disgruntled former trouble making employee, people would be out condemning him. Things that make you go hmmm..
