Let’s just jump into this one quickly about all the lies!
The Chief lies and defends Ofc. Kenworthy when Ofc. Kenworthy left court early causing a chain reaction of the chief losing his credibility to the public that he swore to serve and protect. Then the town prosecutor quits because she can't trust what the chief says and can’t represent him in his cases. Before all this was the sexual harassment case in which the chief was implicated as being a part of a hostile work environment by talking about sex all the time. The attorney accused the chief as being a liar in his answers and thus recommended termination, but the board said, nah we'll just suspend him for awhile. That should do the trick!
Sergeant lies during his sexual harassment lawsuit two years ago when he is questioned by the independent attorney brought in to investigate it as an impartial party and the sergeant shows up with an attorney and states that nothing is true to all the allegations. If that doesn’t look bad, how about when he was served an EPO and lost his right to own a firearm? Any other department would have suspended him on the spot until the investigation was complete. Sure, the town kept him on pay and didn't suspend him. Poor Breeden must've had home issues to worry about and can't be bothered with losing his job or suspended while the situation was being investigated. Lucky for him that everything was dropped prior to court. Believe me that it happens often once people reconcile before the court date and decide not to testify. Doesn't mean that something didn't happen. Now he has a new baby with his girlfriend while he is still legally married to his wife. Is the girlfriend still married to her husband as well?
The Corporal was involved in his own Internal Affairs Investigation about two years ago prior to joining the wonderful Haymarket police Dept. Owe, don't let me leave out the fact that during his IA investigation he LIED to his investigator and made himself look like a fool when two other police officers were ready to testify against him during the IA and in turn that caused Ofc. Kenworthy to resign rather than be terminated for lying and possibly other actions taken against him. One of those two officers is still with PWCPD! So is the officer that conducted the interviews with ofc. Kenworthy! Kenworthy was implicated in the sexual lawsuit but only as a person that covered for the chief and sergeant by being very vague and the attorney thought it was odd for him to try and pretend he didn't know anything. That is why he is now a corporal. Why else would he be given a promotion? It's not like there are 20 officers below him to be in charge of. Apparently you get rank when you lie.
Now which one of these fine outstanding officers are in charge of the department? A chief that never shows up and lies to cover up his sexual harassment complaint and lies to the public causing an attorney to resign? A sergeant that lies to prevent himself from being fired for a domestic dispute and sexual harassment? A corporal that lies during his own internal affairs investigation and helps cover up a sexual harassment complaint? YOU GET ALL THREE WHEN THEY SHOW UP!
Yes, you lucky people of Haymarket get all three liars to serve and protect you! Bet you are proud of not stepping forward sooner when all the allegations were out in the open over the past two years.
So let me ask this, which one of these fine officers were capable of doing an impartial investigation into officer Ishmael after a juvenile made a complaint about him? In my personal opinion.. NONE! I don’t think for a second that any of these three have any morals or respect for their positions as police officers. Officer Ishmael was suspended immediately and found to be guilty by his peers before they even decided to talk to him about the allegations. Why is that? Do they not like officers that are honest? This juvenile had no proof to show that officer Ishmael did anything wrong and yet he was suspended without pay almost immediately even after he stated that nothing said about him was true. Even the girl that was involved stated that it was untrue. So what is going on? If officer Ishmael backs up his three supervisors by lying all the time and covering up wrongdoings would he still be working today? That appears to be the only way to stay a police officer with Haymarket Police. I was told that the commonwealth attorney’s office is looking into officer Ishmael. If they don’t have anything to charge him with what does the town plan to do then? Say sorry for ruining your reputation and career? This entire situation makes me so sick to my stomach. I am glad the newspaper is covering this story and I hope I read more because apparently there is something missing! LIKE THE TRUTH from the three currently employed police officers……
