Look I do not like defamation any more than the next person. However LVMPD criminally charging a guy for alleged defamation of one of their own when they will not investigate and charge actual crimes of violence, personal injury and property loss is ridiculous. You charged a guy for putting sexual memes in a letter? Get out of here with this.

“A police investigator wrote in documents that he believed the letter writer likely wanted the ‘termination or punishment of Meyers’ and noted the ‘escalating content and harassing nature of the letters.’ One letter, sent to Meyers’ home and addressed to his wife, alleged infidelity. Thirteen of the 16 letters accused Meyers of creating a hostile work environment, making lewd comments, and sharing sexual and otherwise inappropriate memes, according to the police documents. He was also accused of providing information about cases to the media. Letters also accused Meyers of having sex at work and of engaging in unwanted touching. None of this was true, police determined.”

I grew up in this town and Metro has always been this way. They do next to nothing to help actual victims of crime, but will close ranks and protect their own at the drop of a hat. The whole organization is untrustworthy.

The comment about “when they will not investigate and charge actual crimes of violence, personal injury and property loss” is spot on.

But there is a guy who is saying not nice things about my buddy so lets close ranks and criminally charge him for not saying nice things about my friend.

I don’t think anyone is surprised by it.

Which is pretty indicative of the entire problem.

No one is surprised but people are reasonably disgusted. Pretty similar to the Scottie Scheffler video where the “cop was dragged” narrative turns out to look pretty silly.

Generally, I believe that Metro is well run and the officers do their jobs properly. That said, they get a ton of BS calls for service that eat up time and spread resources thin.
As for closing ranks, all police and fire units do the same.

I’ve lived in this town long enough to know that Metro is good at only two things: (1) solving murders. Metro is legit good at this; and (2) Looking out for Metro.

If your need falls outside the scope of either of those two, you can just go fuck yourself as far as Metro is concerned.

Yeah, you are wrong. Metro has the exact same problem as CCSD. Too big, too much bloat and governmental bureaucracy that only serves itself.

Break it up into 6-7 smaller departments.

So create 6 or 7 different bureaucracies with different policies and procedures and adjacent jurisdictions? What could go wrong?

If we’re using our big neighbor to the west as a comparator, if you were to look at just the same land area as Metropolitan Las Vegas–basically everything in the valley, including the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, and the rest of the unincorporated county, but excluding the outlying rural cities and other rural areas (think Boulder City, Mesquite, Laughlin, etc.)–there are many, many more incorporated cities anywhere in comparable land area in Los Angeles County, for example, than there are in Nevada.

It would be an interesting historical exploration as to why there are so many more incorporated cities in California than in Nevada. Perhaps historical relative population accounts for a lot of it. Maybe a scholar has already written about this.

More accountability, smaller budgets, more locality. WTF is wrong with you?

CCSD just announced it budget is 3.5B fkg dollars. Inflated salaries for admin, 4x the number of admins actually needed. You must be high.

I was talking about deconsolidating law enforcement, not the school district. Keep your reefer madness fantasies to yourself.

Practically speaking, one way to do that would be for unincorporated areas of the county to incorporate into their own cities. A harder way would be for cities to split into multiple cities. I suppose in theory the legislature has power to abolish the office of county sheriff, see Nev. Const. art. 4, sec. 32, but you’d possibly have a uniform county government problem if sheriff was abolished only in Clark County, see id. art. 4, sec. 25, and was replaced with separate constable or police districts in each township or district (or however else you’d administratively divide up the county), with the replacement cops having the general peace officer powers the sheriff used to have.

tl;dr: Breaking up LVMPD into 6-7 smaller departments is just as politically and legally complex as “just break up CCSD” is. But it can be done–somehow.

Only 10 years for murdering his wife. This is how you know our justice system is broken. Unbelievable. There are a lot of people who would gladly pay the price of 10 years if that is the only punishment for murder.

I guess you’re being hyperbolic but I don’t think there are many people who would kill their wife if they were guaranteed “only” 10-25 years in jail like this guy. As bad as divorce is, it’s better than High Desert State Prison.

Did they call out CSI to positively identify the paprika?
