It looks like Karma has finally placed her call for that police chief who cost her city over $3 million in discrimination lawsuits.
Sandra Spagnoli was named police chief of Beverly Hills in 2016. During her first three years on the job, over 20 department employees filed civil lawsuits or employment complaints against her.
Spagnoli was accused of all types of professional misconduct, including making derogatory remarks about people’s sexual orientations, religions, and ethnicities, and denying them opportunities because of their identities.
In one lawsuit, Spagnoli was accused of telling a lesbian officer that the thought of what she does with other women “makes me sick.”
Another lawsuit alleged Spagnoli called a different lesbian officer “gross” then said “Don’t let her touch me!” and “Don’t let her get next to me in the [department] photo!”

Ultimately, the city had to pay out over $3 million in settlements to numerous department employees who had accused Spagnoli of discrimination.
Amazingly, however, she managed to hold onto her job despite the millions of dollars she was costing, not to mention the damage to the department’s reputation.
Spagnoli has finally stepped down after yet another lawsuit was lodged against her on March 30. It was filed by officer Scott Dibble, who claims he was denied a promotion several times “because of his refusal to have a sexual relationship with the Chief.”
Spagnoli had been previously accused of similar behavior in a 2018 lawsuit that claimed she had affairs with two subordinates, both of whom received promotions over more experienced officers who were not “banging the chief.”
After the lawsuit was filed March 30, Spagnoli was given the option to either retire or have her employment terminated. She chose to retire. Her last day will be May 15.
In a statement, Spagnoli says, “I am grateful to have served Beverly Hills and proud of the accomplishments over the past four years to keep this world-class community one of the safest in the nation.”
Sounds like it’ll be even safer without her around.

May you suffer insufferable massive chronic cottage cheese filled yeast infections for the rest of your miserable days you noxious repugnant trolls crunt
shut up you miserable syphilitic fool…. you are smegma and we can smell you from here, wipe your chin. you disgust me.
I see the troll is back and wasting no time.
Interesting how enraged you got when somebody was mocking a bigot who attacked her LGBT employees. Oh, that’s right, you support bigotry so of course get enraged when bigots are called out.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Vince, Cam. Just ignore the sniveling abhorrent noxious pernicious ignorant troll smcubag. It has no life and periodically slithers out from it’s Mother’s hoarder filled basement to seek responses to it’s idiotically inane ignorant croaks. Karma is a strong force. Soon it will get it’s comeuppance. Again ignore it, it’s too ignorant to notice I never directly respond to it. ..
Yep. She’s a miserable, F ucking, ignorant, intolerant, bigoted C UNT! How much you want to be she’s a Baptist, too? Listens to those A SS HOLES: Tony Perkins, Robert Jeffress, Franklin Graham, Jerry ‘Pool Boy’ Falwell, Jr., Pat Robertson and the like and believing all the stupid S HIT they propagate from their pulpits.
Because somebody is going to say it (and with good reason)… If this would have been a man he would have been dragged all over SM and the #MeToo movement.
Terminated or retired. Tough choice. Lol
Yeah every other place you don’t get those options. They just kick your ass out the door.
So she is still sucking down public service pension money, paid for by taxpayers. Nice work if you can get it!
“”After the lawsuit was filed March 30, Spagnoli was given the option to either retire or have her employment terminated. She chose to retire. Her last day will be May 15.””
I am so sick of these people who spend years abusing their employees getting to “retire” with full pensions. She should be fired.
Also interesting, notice how she wasn’t fired when she attacked the lesbians? It wasn’t until a straight guy filed suit that she got dumped.
I bet they miss Chief Bogomil
I’m sure Axel Foley is misses him. 🙂
Another Karen bites the dust.
The above picture is so not flattering, it makes her look like Felicity Hoffman in Transamerica…….the phase of the transition.

As to be expected Queerty decided not to list the state this particular Beverly Hills is in but I am going to assume its California. If you do a google search NUMEROUS municipalities across the country are named Beverly Hills but that left out fact notwithstanding this broad lasted as long as she did because of the forces that were behind her being appointed in the first place. You do not get to be chief of police of that prestigious local without being politically connected. She sounds like the black sheep of some well to do family who decided to get her away from the family business but to keep her from spilling the beans on the rest of the family let her be a police officer with no familial objections. It won’t be long before a tell all is written about her, that is providing the book publisher offers more than the city will offer the author to shut up and shelve the book. She is going to cost that city far more than three million dollars by the time this is all over.
The former Chief, David Snowden, was given the same terms when it was discovered he used his private security firm for Beverly Hills events (not unlike Trump getting paid for forcing people to use his hotels)–so he bowed out quietly. This woman had a bad reputation before the lawsuits…she ‘managed up’ and gossip was rampant in the City of low moral in the department. With all the news of the lawsuits and bad behavior, I really doubt she’s going to get a job anywhere else (HR departments can’t give out that information for fear of being sued). There are some very nice people in the Police Department, but there’s also a sense of immense spoiled entitlement over there, as well.
Good Riddance! She should not be given a pension, she cost them a lot of money for her discrimination of us.
WOW, she was a cliche right out of “OZ”. How she got to retire without being fired and arrested is strange. Her daddy must be some big shot. Or her father. Or maybe it is that scumbag troll who seemed reallly triggerred by this
Abuse of subordinates is an abuse of authority.
Authorities should not permit such behavior.
Military officers are trained in the limits of their authority and of their behavior.
All people who serve in positions of authority should adhere to the proper regulations.
There’s no excuse for abusing power.
Hey Queerty…how about managing the hate and spam replies?
