I say this is an indication that the system works. Obviously no one can be truly happy that a person's career is over, but if what Mrs. Sweidy said is true, it seems to me that Mr. Wassman should never have been the building official, and certainly should not be that official any longer.
How and why, then, are the police officers who were involved in the police report falsification issue with Mr. Buckheit, and their management, still employed? To me, the falsification of a police report is even more serious that the incompetence or alleged bribe taking of a building inspector.
I come to only one conclusion: it's the power of unions. Mr. Wassman did not have one behind him, but the police officers do.
This is certainly an example of the system NOT working.
