    Metro was and has been informed even with the promotion system in place that many of their supervisors lack training people skills and knowledge of police leadership . might be due to their transit based experience but they need to improve. Also the organization let’s this continue until there’s legal action or total outright abuse because they don’t like to admit that they have bad supervisor personal they protect them to the very end in the meantime otherwise suffer the consequences of bad supervision and so does the public
