That officer in particular is one of the nicest around. He's extremely upset. His badge number is visible and easily identifiable.

As the chief you're not going to make everybody happy. That's just part of your job.

It's absolutely untrue. It makes my blood boil to see what professes (to be) a news organization put out something to inflame the public.

My concern is are they (the candidates) going to be willing to make the changes that really need to be made to gain the confidence of the troops again.

None of those situations are situations where an officer has time to think. It's someone else's actions that forces them to react. It's not that the officers are choosing to go to work to shoot somebody.
