According to the New York Daily News' John Marzulli, Deputy Chief Michael Gabriel, who oversees the Bronx detectives, has "made the squad room a hostile workplace with obsessive behavior." Gabriel, who Marzulli says "apparently digs the Twilight saga," is accused by a subordinate detective of sending inappropriate text messages that are laced with references to Twilight.
"I ask for ur forgiveness and another chance (Think Bella forgiving Jacob)," Gabriel wrote in a text [his accuser] showed to the Daily News.
The comment seems to refer to the lusty Bella and her suitor Jacob, who transforms himself into a werewolf in the vampire series popular with teenagers.
In another text message from an NYPD-issued BlackBerry, the chief asked for forgiveness: "I will accept any penalty; hard labor, probation, a time out. ... Do werewolves kill humans just like vampires?"
