NEW METRO has another porn problem

METRO Worker Caught On Hidden Camera Faces Felony Charge - Stephen Dean, KPRC-2 News

Local 2 Investigates reported Tuesday that a felony charge of tampering with a government record was lodged against 51-year-old David Wayne Richards, who was the focus of a hidden camera report in October.

In court records, METRO police wrote that Richards made false entries on his official daily work record, reflecting that he was helping stranded motorists when he was really being recorded going from one adult video store to another.

[snip]

METRO Vice President Tom Lambert, who was over the program, said, "We're embarrassed by it. It's not something that we expect should be happening. It's not something we condone to happen and so we're disappointed that it happened.

Ah, hapless former police chief Tom Lambert makes an appearance! We would have thought Jerome Gray would be handling these sorts of press inquiries (given Lambert's past performances).

To quote my blogging colleague Anne Linehan from an email exchange earlier, this seems to be some Culture of Porn NEW METRO has going!

Jerome don't want to touch this!
Wonder if that bad-ass salary he got is bad-ass enough for him to get out in front and be the mouthpiece for a bunch of gay porn pedophiles(no pun intended;)

Obviously this should overshadow Boy George's situation.

Re: NEW METRO has another porn problem

I'm trying to figure out what the qualitative difference is between an employee spending his work time driving to porn as opposed to that employee's boss surfing to porn, and why one is facing felony charges, while the other got a week's unpaid vacation.  Is it that the employee signed a time card, thereby falsifying a "government document"?  Because we all know that time-cards are more important "government documents" than say, voter registrations submitted by SEIU "action groups" last fall.

So what is the message here?  I can surf gay child porn all day long as long as I don't fill out the paperwork?  Sign me up!  (uh, or not...)


Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.  But they have no idea they're in a re-run.

Lambert: "We're embarrassed by it. It's not something that we expect should be happening. It's not something we condone to happen and so we're disappointed that it happened."

Wow! Talk about redundancy and not understanding how to use the word condone!! This was probably in some spoken remark, right?

Lambert is not the brightest bulb, as we've all come to know over years of accumulated posts.

So of course he's METRO VP material!
