There are any number of loud noise issues that can be remedied with a spine, creativity, imagination and a moonless night! And no permanent damage, make sure of that!

Bumping up the post. Like many politicians before him, Magnus is failing up and leaving for greener pastures with the Feds.

So does the city of Tucson get the most qualified or the candidate that checks the right boxes?

Paste and cut the latest United Airlines announcement about how they will hire/train pilots, and you have your answer about how they will hire the next police chief.

Skills, qualifications, and experience are way down the list of requirements. Race and gender are the prioritized set of requirements in our society now, especially with our "mayor".

The city of Tucson has about half the number of officers a city our size should have. They've been understaffed for decades. The older officers are laying low to keep their pensions intact and younger officers are leaving for greener pastures. But thankfully Tucson will be hiring a new diversity candidate that checks off a few boxes.

It's telling when I hear personal stories from law enforcement officers off the record about turning a blind eye on traffic stops that they know could turn problematic.

A great number of my close friends are law enforcement here, you have no idea of the shenanigan's they have to put up with on a daily basis, both in the office, and on the beat.

$166 billion is a lot, and should be more than enough. That is why I looked it up. No offense, but you need to double check and know the difference between million and billion. Because the budget is actually $166 million.

Same here, the guys sweating bullets were the PCSD guys when Nanos got reelected. He came back with an enemies list a mile long for anyone that slighted him before he lost the election previously. One big reason there were a lot of retirements last December.
