According to our Eyes, APD's 5th floor is trying to at least appear to make amends with DETECTIVE Sergeant John Guilmette. No... they're not giving him back his job or a comparable one as required by federal law, but they are taking him out of the old broken down police cruiser they forced him to use instead one of the new Tahoes that his seniority should have earned him.
The Eyes have it that DETECTIVE Sergeant John Guilmette will be issued one of the new Tahoes tomorrow (Friday). Of course, if he had received a comparable job to the one he had before he left for Iraq, he wouldn't need one of the new Tahoes.
According to our Eyes, the move has not deterred Detective Sergeant Guilmette as he plans to move forward with the Tort claim. What this move does is give the 5th floor political cover. Look for the Chief or one of his spokespeople to claim that one of the new SUVs just became available. Who knows, it might even be true, but with their recent track record (number of officers on the street, tweaking the red light scam-era numbers, etc.) we tend to doubt it.
