In the case of Duane Johnson I want to know why the Captain of the Internal Affairs Div. is not being brought up on charges. His office is the only one that can see the GPS logs other than the dispatch officer at the time it is happening. Why was IAB not doing their job? Who is watching the so called watchers?

I dont think so, especially if they can't even do their job and follow up on the GPS logs.
