Woman riles up Sarasota Springs Priesthood

Post by moksha » Wed Jan 11, 2023 7:48 am

The Saratoga Springs police chief, assistant police chief and city manager dismissed a woman’s complaints and requests for help after an officer sexually assaulted her in 2019, effectively covering up the alleged attacks, a new federal lawsuit contends.

Saratoga Springs officer Kevin Norris, who resigned in 2022, sexually assaulted the woman twice in 2019, then repeatedly harassed, stalked, threatened and intimidated her, the complaint filed Monday alleges.

When the woman reported Norris’ alleged assault and misconduct to Assistant Police Chief William Robertson, who is also named as a defendant, he dismissed her, telling her that “Elders will be boys,” the complaint states, and threatening that he would “create trouble” for her if she “mentioned the inappropriate conduct to anyone.”

Over the course of about two years after the alleged assaults, Robertson wanted to “run [the woman] out of the city,” the complaint accuses, arguing that led to an improper police search of her home “based on exaggerated or false claims,” as well as officers “following her on errands, parking by or near her home” and other “improper law enforcement behavior.”

"Elders will be boys"

If I'm not mistaken the actual article says "Boys will be boys". Am I wrong there?

Sounds even worse because of that tautology thing.

This would be a nightmare, that poor woman and family. I hope she gets some recompense, safety, and closure.

I knew the perp as a kid, it's sad that this is the first thing I've heard about him since then.

A cop abusing someone. In other news, the Sun rose in the East this morning. I don't see how people still defend police after so many such examples.
