Remember the whole fuss about Cmdr. McNeilly getting demoted for blowing the whistle, suing the pants off the city, winning an $85,000 settlement and getting her job back?
Thank God that’s over right. We can all “move forward” now, right?
Pittsburgh police Cmdr. Catherine R. McNeilly, who successfully fought her demotion with a federal whistle-blower lawsuit, yesterday released an open letter to city residents in which she gave her side of the matter and spelled out what she intends to do with the $85,000 settlement she received.
The letter, which Cmdr. McNeilly paid to have published as an advertisement in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette early next week, also criticized officials for failing to act upon the disciplinary matters that caused her to speak out in the first place.
Seriously? She took out an ad to tell us all about how she was wronged and to lay into who wronged her and why she did what she did and what she plans to do with her money (start a charitable fund)?
Didn’t anyone bother to take an ad out to tell her that no one gives a rat’s ass about this?
Some things from the letter:
— She once again lays into Rende.
— She lays into Lukey for running a corrupt office.
— The “intimately involved individual” is of course Marlene Cassidy, Rende’s sister.
— She ends the letter like so:
I accept it only so that I may put an end to the distraction that has been caused by this episode, and resume what I was in the process of doing throughout my 29 year career with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police as a law enforcement officer . . . To serve the citizens of Pittsburgh with accountability, integrity and respect.
Catherine R. McNeilly
Is she running for office or something?
God, let it die, Cmdr. McNeilly.
I’m here to tell you that nobody gives a rat’s ass and your big fat ego just got you named the next Annoying Burgher. Your crown is in the mail, and by crown I mean full page ad telling you in detail just how annoying you are.
Also? What’s up with her hair? That’s some scary shit right there.
