    •  In my experience (0+ / 0-)

      working within top-down public safety agencies, each person is responsible not only for their own actions, but for the behavior of each person under them.  This is a universal truth in these types of organizations, one that gets drilled into your head literally Day 1 at the academy.

      One of the go-to strategies of the 1% is to deflect accountability as far down the chain of command as possible.  Internally, everyone knows the opposite is true.  It's a paradox, one that I've been very keen to expose.
