Fraternal Order of Police blast Superintendent Weast

Schools Superintendent Jerry Weast is no friend of law enforcement, according to a local police boosters group.

The Rap Sheet, the newsletter of Montgomery County Lodge 35 of the Fraternal Order of Police, ripped into Weast in its 2002 newsletter:

"It would seem that there is enough work to do over at MCPS that Mr. Weast wouldn’t have time to run the police department. Maybe he feels an obligation to put in the extra time to justify his inflated salary. Perhaps it is a power and control thing, or maybe just sheer panic. Whatever the reason, the Weast infection that has spread throughout MCPS has now reached the EOB and the Puzzle Palace on Research Boulevard."
