The Mayor has No Comment

"Arrogant lips are unsuited to a fool-- how much worse lying lips to a ruler" - Proverbs 17:7

So the police chief admits he lied to cover up a story about illegal activities within the police department. Seems like an issue this serious deserves some response from the Mayor.

"Capital News 9 also contacted the mayor, who refused to comment, as well as the police union president, who won't say a word about the entire series of events."

The police chief must resign or be fired. The Mayor must not just refuse to comment and hope this goes away. The police chief is an admitted liar. If a story had run in yesterday's paper about how you ADMITTED you lied on your job to cover up illegal activity you can be damn sure that you wouldn't be going to work today.

The ball is in your court Mayor Jennings. Either it is a government that is accountable for its actions, or it isn't. There is no gray area here.
