LMAS Ridiculousness Just Par For The Course

You know how Metro Animal Services is a disaster? Yeah, you know.

Every person Greg Fischer and Sadiqa Reynolds have ever put into a position of leadership has been a train wreck. Or a train wreck waiting to happen. They’re generally people who have no business being around animals, let alone being in charge of tens of thousands of vulnerable lives.

We’ve done our part to oust horrible directors of the agency. We foam at the mouth about the place on a daily basis. You may be tired of it but you know we’re right and that’s why you loosely tolerate the outrage without choking us.

So you won’t be surprised at all to hear about Margaret Brosko getting away with breaking the law. With your taxpayer dollars. No reprimand, no write-up, no punishment, no discipline. Not surprised in the least.

Here’s the skinny:

Brosko was driving an Animal Services truck and backed into an employee’s car in the Manslick Road parking lot. Allegedly. (And by allegedly? We mean she did it.) Then she drove off. Since no one was there to directly witness the incident, employees were left to their own devices. When the victim discovered that her vehicle was banged up, she and a coworker played detective. They checked out every vehicle around and discovered an LMAS truck with her car’s paint on it. The truck had visible damage (shocker) and they went through records to find that Brosko was driving it. She of course denied any involvement and continues to do so.

But we got our hands on a police report that lists her as being the person who backed into the car and leaving the scene of the crime.

Risk management wrote the employee a check for damages. And when we say wrote a check? It was a big one:

Had this occurred in any other metro agency (or anywhere else, honestly), she’d be punished because a hit and run is a criminal act. According to Metro Animal Services’ standard operating procedure handbook? Damage to vehicles must be reported to a supervisor and if the employee fails to do so, they’ll be disciplined or fired. Bizarre that Brosko got away with it all.

Definitely not another instance of irresponsibility, negligence and general awfulness. Nothing to see here, move along, puppies and rainbows.

Possibility City!
