Listen, I was a cop in a major metro area for nearly 40 years and I can tell you that many - but admittedly not all -Police Chiefs and/or Police Commissioners are NOTHING more than politicians wearing uniforms. Most of them are political sycophants that are totally obedient to the political ruling class within the city. Many are liars, boozers, womanizers and corrupt while they dork around in those fancy uniforms they like to wear and preach honesty and integrity to the rank and file officers who inwardly laugh at them. Their whole mission is to maintain their high paying position and to insulate their political bosses from scrutiny and criticism. Trust none of them.
