What do you get when you sue a city $20 billion in debt?
Probably nothing, but that’s not stopping female police officers in Detroit from filing two grievances against the police department for releasing their bra sizes.
Detroit TV station WJKB reports the lawsuits and one EEOC complaint were filed by female officers and the police union after a spreadsheet containing the height, weight and bra size of officers was emailed to male officers.
The female officers had provided cup size information while being fitted for bullet-proof vests. At some point, a commander thought spamming the spreadsheet would be a good way to tell everyone their vests were ready.
About 50 officers got the email, including 30 men.
Somehow, the mistake in judgment made it through several layers of management without someone saying “Instead of attaching this spreadsheet, why not just sent an email with the subject line ‘Your bulletproof vest is ready.’”
Here’s the official explanation:
“Commander Dwayne Love was asked to notify the officers that their bullet proof vests were ready to be picked up. So he forwarded an email [and attachment] to the commanders, who then forwarded it to the supervisors, who then forwarded it to [all] the officers,” writes WJKB.
Assistant Chief James White says a “complete investigation” and “corrective action” will be taken but several female officers say they have faced ridicule from fellow officers and that “the damage … has already been done.
