Cambridge City Council held a Budget Hearing regarding the Cambridge Human Rights Commission May 14, 2007. The Executive Director "Mad Dog" Quoc Tran is an attorney. He is also the Director of the Police Review and Advisory Board. When City Councilor Marjorie Decker asked some scary questions, "Mad Dog" did not answer. The Deputy City Manager Richard Rossi, the City Manager Robert Healy and City Councilor and Middlesex Court Clerk Michael Sullivan answered for him. He did answer two of the later questions, e.g., "How long have you held this office?"
This man is symptomatic of how watchdogs do not protect us from government abuses of power. Instead they are chosen for their inabiltiy to assert citizen protections and instead protect government officials from any oversight and accountability.
