Why would it be a "pleasant surprise" that if their internal investigation led them to conclude that he did commit the act they would seek to terminate his employment?
And, what does the "blue wall" have to do with this particular case?

The facts will come out.
I will say though that pulling in front of the car is not necessarily indicative of intentional wrongdoing. Officers might have been told she was trying to leave the scene, if so, pulling in front of her vehicle to block her exit would be logical. So, the accusations of wrongdoing and necessity for an overhaul are premature.
I also have no idea what kind of person Ms. Herrera is or the people "she represents". At any rate, I'm confident the facts will come out.

Loitering in and of itself is not illegal.

Kathleen Moore gets her facts a wrong again. At worst, PD went over budget one time in the last ten years. You have to look at the entire SPD budget. Just like any other business - some budget lines are exceeded but counterbalanced by surpluses in others. Yet, she makes this allegation again and again. Apparently the Editor is not concerned with accuracy.

RE: retail - it was always difficult to compete against the Malls (and later the big box stores). Adding to that challenge is the ability to shop electronically.

The information is out there. I don't have the time nor desire to educate you on these matters.

What is the legitimate benefit of knowing the name of the retiree? The retiree being simply listed by their municipality and occupation would accomplish the same purpose. What more does the public gain by knowing the name?

ChuckD - Your assertions appear to be little more than guesses about the history of the events.

Note to Editorial Board - while there were external investigations of the PD, the lion's share of the more recent disciplinary cases were handled internally. The DA's office entered into the cases at the request of the PD. They have to be when the case involves criminal conduct. Your article, not surprisingly paints a picture that the PD was incapable or unwilling to address its' own problems.
And, in view of the fact this case had nothing to do with the Police Department, why are you dragging them into it? Oh I forget, it's the Gazette.
