WE WERE ALL WAITING TO SEE IF SOMEONE WOULD RUN OUT OF THE ROOM CRYING!
As many of you know Wayne Dolcefino has done a series of explosive reports on the Houston Police Department in May. He called it Blurring the Badge. It takes a look at Houston police Captain Dwayne Readdy and other top brass. The reports question whether Readdy was using his influence as a captain to get results for his private security business. But throughout the series we never heard from HPD Chief Harold Hurtt. If I’m not mistaken – in one report Wayne indicated he wasn’t able to talk with the chief. And like an aggressive reporter Dolcefino showed up for the Chief’s monthly press conference with the news media and took over on Thursday. Wayne allowed all of the general assignment reporter like myself to get our questions in and when the chance came he jumped right in. We all just watched to see if someone would cry and run out of the room. But it appeared Chief Hurtt was well prepared and answered all of Wayne’s questions. Dolcefino made it clear there will be more reports about the improprieties he uncovered in the department including the destruction of emails by commanders on the force!
Note: Wayne is in the yellow jacket and the female in the chair is Elizabeth Lee who is kind of unknowingly dropping by The Insite for the second time!
