I think if we are to discover, define and judge, “abusive” behavior we need only go to the video archives of the Madera County Board of Supervisors meetings and witness the often abusive/offensive behavior and verbal treatment of staff and the public by certain members of the board.
District Attorney Linn could possibly be successfully accused of “abrasive” (not abusive) behavior because of his well-known low tolerance for greed, ignorance, crime or dereliction of duty. Hardly a trait worthy of censure and, in fact, just what many are looking for in a county top cop.
Linn has demonstrated that no one is above the law and that he doesn’t play nice with those who think they are regardless of their financial or political status.
This one doesn’t pass the smell test.
