Burlingamer

Excited about the prospects for our City. Go Donna. Happy Holidays everyone.

KQED was the first to report on this I believe, but the DJ also has the report. It's good to see that the right things were done promptly to address a really serious issue:

A Burlingame police office was fired after an investigation found he offered to help a woman navigate her driving under the influence charge in return for sex, according to a report released under a new state law designed to enhance transparency.

Without authorization, former officer David Granucci took the phone number of a woman arrested in early March and scheduled an appointment at her house where he sexually propositioned her, according to the report released Monday, Jan. 7.

And some follow-up from the DJ:

After reviewing accounts from five women alleging misconduct by a former Burlingame police officer, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe opted against reopening a criminal case against the officer fired from the department last year, claiming he did not find the officer’s conduct in those incidents to be criminal.

Though Wagstaffe acknowledged some of the behavior alleged in the reports, which he said included salacious language and propositions, was unbecoming of a professional, he said it didn’t warrant the reopening of a criminal investigation into the conduct of former officer David Granucci.

There are most likely a few Skeletons in the BPD Closet.
The few I remember are the arrest and conviction of a Child Porn Father working in City Hall, he might have been the same man with a handgun in his desk.
The Park Dept. employee arrested and convicted of the filming and sexual assault of multiple HS girls, theft of fuel and equipment from the Public Works Dept. Possibly a dozens of others...
I wonder were to find that Public Information information?
Every Public agency has had these issues... Hillsbough- Holy Cow, that place is like the Dark Web.
The BPD should have fired and arrested the Police Officer.
Instead they chose to "Bury" the crime, and criminal. I wonder how much the monetary settlement was to the victims?
Another "Nail in the Coffin" of the City of Burlingame Manager.
When will the City Elders address this Crazy Management?
