Jersey City IA justifies its "administrative dismissal"

On June 6, 2013, I questioned why the Jersey City Police Internal Affair Unit "administratively dismissed" my Internal Affairs complaint instead of deciding it on its merits.  My June 6, 2013 letter and background on the matter is here.

The Unit responded with a June 17, 2013 letter, which is on-line here.  It was explained that "[t]o not sustain or exonerate the officer . . . would be dismissive and insulting to [me] and [my] efforts [while sustaining the complaint] would vilify the efforts put forth by the officers in the street and diminish their efforts to keeping the citizens of Jersey City safe."
