In a previous TFoTM posting, a comment by Anonymous asked if there was a more recent incident covered up by Westfield police to protect one of their own.
The question posted was, "How about something that might have happened in this decade, or with the current chief?"
Here is something that happened in the last decade that allegedly involved the Westfield police chief.
Chief David Wayman travelled to Toronto, Canada to play in a softball tournament with a group of other law enforcement officers. He travelled with another Westfield police officer.
Allegedly, after a night of drinking, and while walking the streets of downtown Toronto, Wayman allegedly broke the plate glass window of a liquor store and stole a bottle of alcohol from a display.
When TFoTM was attempting to confirm facts of the alleged incident which included speaking to a detective in the Toronto police department that runs the softball tournament, I was paid a visit by the Westfield Police department at my home.
Two Westfield police officers rang my doorbell and I was told, by them, not to make any further contact with the Toronto police. I was not given a reason why.
Why was I being silenced by local law enforcement while attempting to investigate a crime allegedly committed by Westfield police chief David Wayman?
It's time for town officials and county law enforcement to intervene and look into Wayman's past issues regarding racial profiling, questionable practices as a Union County police academy physical fitness instructor, and his off duty indescretions.
Another incident involving alleged sexual harassment at the FBI training academy that Wayman was allegedly a party to, should be questioned.
Mayor Andy Skibitsky has recently expressed his displeasure, to others, with Chief Wayman. Problem is, he approved Wayman's promotion to police chief despite multiple warnings, not to promote him. Skibitsky is stuck with him. Unfortunately, so are we the taxpayer.
