Read the following and then answer the questions.
Joe Hunter has been with the San Angeles Police Department for the past six years. After graduating second in his class at the state police academy, Hunter was hired as a patrol person with San Angeles. He quickly moved up the ranks to corporal in his second year and sergeant in his fourth year with the Police Department. All of the officers considered Hunter to be the best police officer on the force because of his high level of intelligence and his uncanny ability to work with the public by anticipating problems in the community.
Everything was going along well for Sergeant Hunter until the spring of 2011. During this time, he started dating a girl that he quickly fell in love with. He didn’t know until five months after they began dating that she had once been engaged to the police captain.
When Hunter’s captain discovered the relationship, he was furious with Hunter but knew that he could not legally control his employees’ private life. However, even though he could not directly tell Hunter what to do, he decided to make his life miserable at work. Captain Webb constantly gave Hunter the worst assignments, kept him away from the public contact that made him such a good officer and started to lower Hunter’s performance evaluations.
