Diop Kamau, founder and director of Policeabuse.com., which is assisting Ellis' efforts to seek justice, condemned White's refusal to investigate Woolridge's alleged misconduct.
...
"Chief White had nine months to punish, fine, suspend or fire Woolridge, but chose not to," said Kamau, who did not limit his criticism to the then chief executive.
...
"The superior officer was obligated to either sign off on the police report Woolridge should have submitted, or, absent a report, indicated his objection to the subordinate's failure or refusal to have written one," Kamau continued, "so he is as responsible for the obvious misconduct as is Woolridge."
...
In addition, Kamau said, "I don't believe that forcing rape victims to file misconduct complaints in person is the Louisville Police Department's policy now, or that such was the policy in 2009. To demand that rape victims file misconduct complaints in person, Kamau added, "is unconscionable."
Ultimately, Kamau said, "Chief White should have been sanctioned for condoning the refusal to act, he was responsible for what began as Woolridge's determination to do nothing and became a cover-up."
...
Moreover, Kamau explained, "Chief White didn't need a complaint to conduct his own investigation; the department had more than enough evidence to open one."
...
The chief's failure was not only "deliberate," Kamau charged, "it also bought Woolridge plenty of time to retire, with his pension secure for the future."
...
Kamau scoffed at the apology Ellis received from Chief White's successor, Steven Conrad.
...
Ellis, like Kamau, was unimpressed with Chief Conrad's apology.

"This is a landmark ruling for people who believe in free speech and public access," said Diop Kamau, executive director of the Police Complaint Center. The 20-year-old Tallahassee, Fla.-based group investigates police misconduct and excessive-force complaints on behalf of individuals.
"The police are the first line of government, but they do more to subvert the public's right to know than any other agency," added Kamau, a former Hawthorne, Calif., cop who left police work after he became disillusioned by instances
...
"It continues to be a serious problem," added Kamau, who regularly receives such complaints. He is looking into the case of a woman who was arrested and her cellphone confiscated while she was recorded police allegedly manhandling her husband during a traffic stop.

"It's a dangerous set of circumstances when police are left to their own devices," said Diop Kamau, director of the Tallahassee, Fla.-based Police Complaint Center."The department has a great deal of autonomy to fire and issue other reprimands.Outside of that, though, there's very little oversight, except for the federal government."Kamau, a former sheriff's deputy and corrections officer in California who says he saw repeated incidents of police corruption, brutality and racism, said that local police agencies are prone to ignoring citizen complaints about their officers."Unless there's a major scandal that draws a (federal) agency into it, these local networks are fairly firm and fairly resistant to anyone who doesn't have any official authority," Kamau said.
...
Kamau thinks most states don't want the political trouble of actively policing law enforcement agencies.He thinks there needs to be more federal oversight, especially of small-town agencies where local citizens have a hard time having their complaints heard."Outside of the major cities, you get a very provincial approach relating to police behavior," Kamau said.

Its founder, Diop Kamau, "arranged a three-way conversation and so my daughter and I were able to listen as he spoke to Sheriff Timothy Brown and informed him of that Policeabuse.com was aware of the assaults on my son."
