WickerNipple: But still on the City Council.


Which, even without the current issues with him, shouldn't even be a thing.  The current chief of police also being on the city council sounds like a massive conflict of interest on the best of days.

But he and his lawyer told the Tribune he was open to cooperating with investigations as long as he can see his previous transcripts first.
"That's a fair thing to ask for before he has to then discuss it again because, as time goes by, all the information that he hears, it's hard to keep straight," Hyde said.


Yes, you absolutely need to make sure you keep all the self-covering lies in line with themselves!

I mean, schools hiring police seems like a huge scam to get tax dollars approved for education into the pockets of police... Given the size of the town, number of police and the funding levels, I'd expect all sorts of corruption.

There are less devastating ways to get put on administrative leave.
 
2022-06-22 10:52:26 PM  
1 hour to go in. 4 weeks to get on PAID admin leave.

We're gonna find MH370 before we find out what happened in Uvalde.

I hope wolverines chew his dick off and then spit it into his mouth. Good lord, this guy sucks.

But what also sucks? Axios' stupid bullet-points way of reporting. This isn't a farking listicle!

He's only police chief of the school police not the town police.

Yes, they have 2 separate police forces.  Yes, it was the Border Patrol that went into the classroom and killed the dude.

City Council members don't get paid, accept honorariums, bribesdonations?

/can't discover if its paid or unpaid leave anyway

Sweet. One step closer to seeing how hard it is to open a door and drop a couple hundred rounds.

That's a joke, but I'll bet he wouldn't immediately dismiss running for sheriff.

Not for long. A resident found a loophole. He got sworn in but hasn't shown up to any meetings. If he misses one more meeting, he loses his seat. He either has to show or resign.

Announcing to the media, "My client is having a lot of trouble keeping his story straight" is one of those high-level legal tactics that is not taught at just any law school.

The answer is simple, they need more cops.

Anything better than the police. Let the parents of the children getting shot by a school shooter go inside to retrieve their children. Letting Officer Ruben Ruiz go inside to help his wife who was shot. I am so glad that you chimed in

Ho ho ho! That's rich!

I have to remember that demand if I'm ever approached for an interview for something serious.

Me: "Yes I'll talk to you on the condition I'm given a written transcript of our conversation, along with a copy of any and all saved or recorded media, including a copy of any notes taken during the conversation".

Then: Our notes? No way

Me: Ok, how about just the transcript of what YOU think everyone said, and I'll make an audio recording and transcribe it on my own. That's reasonable, right?

Them: Sounds reasonable to me.

Me: Gotcha b*tches!

/The transcript says Big boy did it

Just to use this specific event as an example... normal people would have gone in sooner without the police restraining them.

And even if they hadn't, it was the freaking border patrol that finally did the job, not the police.

Getting rid of the police here seems win-win. They actively prevented action for a while and then gave up and let another agency do their jobs. Literally worse than useless.

Well, not to play devil's advocate, but the Border Patrol really needed the W more.

I'm just glad people can stay focused on the kids taking the L as long as they have.

This is record breaking attention span for us at this point.

The other thing I want to know is why he's on administrative leave. There's no specific reason it has anything to do with his performance at the shooting.

Maybe he's on leave because they feel all of the intimidation from the victims' parents will unfairly affect his ability to do his job.

Maybe he even asked to be put on leave from the PD. We do know he asked for a leave from his city council :"work."

The police don't have a constitutional mandate to protect. Neither do sheriff's. Cops stood around while kids were... mutilated by a high powered weapon.

And I'm not thrilled at semi agreeing with a101, but, what's the difference?
