The chief has an inability to lead? I think they could be correct if you read the account of the incident from the AG's Office that brought this on. On Nov. 29, 2012, a chase ensued that ended up with 60+ patrol vehicles involved even though the "rules" are that no more than 3 be involved and the dispatchers were ordering patrol vehicles off of the chase. The chase took about 20 minutes with speeds over 100mph. HOWEVER, when it ended, over 130 rounds were fired into the vehicle inside of 18 seconds with one officer climbing upon the trunk and then onto the roof. . . .reloading several times and putting 49 rounds HIMSELF into the occupants of the vehicle. Many of the patrol vehicles had "friendly fire" holes in them and when the incident was completely over. . . . .no gun was found inside the vehicle. Obviously, there were several officers that (if this report is correct) had no regard for procedures. . . .OR the law.
While I hope the report is incorrect and that the officers are exonerated of the charges, but if it is true. . . . .sounds like there are going to be several openings in that department with many of these officers changing their address to the local gray bar hotel.
