Maybe the criminals are fleeing to Chicago. Clearly the wonderful citizens of that city are not at fault, it must be people from another state causing all the crime!

Do you think it's because he doesn't have to answer to a Mayor that he can speak up this way?
Bob
4th, I'm unfamiliar with how police chiefs are selected/chosen in Detroit so I'm unable to answer your question.

Do you happen to know if this particular chief was appointed by the city council or was this chief appointed some other way?

Police chiefs in Kalifornia are appointed by city councils and thus are controlled by city councils and/or the respective city manager. This is why Kalifornia police chiefs, and their decision making, fall prey to political agendas rather than reason (more often than not).

As long as Kevin Orr, the emergency manager, is in charge, his job will be safe. However, the current mayor, Mike Duggan, is a long-time Democrat political hack. He likes to tout himself as a manager who turns around failing institutions, but he usually gets out of Dodge just ahead of failure.

The current police chief does have a longer term contract, but Detroit will backslide to the "old days" just as soon as the current financial oversight is gone.

Any police chief not pro-gun needs to find a new line of work.
Here in Southern Cal most of the COP's(Chief's of Police) are against the citizens/victs having guns for self defense. They believe that as long as there are victs then it's a job security situation and their jobs are safe, thus increasing the dept. with new ofcrs and equipment/training. I as a LEO have never agreed with this mindset and have always advised and counseled citizens and vict's of crimes to armed themselves. It's the same as when firemen gives advise on fire prevention and or combating a fire. The old Biblical saying, "give a man a fish and he'll eat all day, teach him how to fish and he'll eat for the rest of his life".

In fact the "California Police chief association" is strongly against any kind of CCW and or Constitutional carry. They like to think that they are God/our bosses. Too many lives lost or changed forever do to good people following very very bad laws. Laws be damned when comes to one's safety....Better to judged by 12 than be carried by 6.....Semper Fi...DI4

a flat -out lie...

John Horowitz..has his head on backwards. Proven fact he's full of @$%# ! If four cities in the US were given to Canada , we would drop to 107 on National murder rate list . Detriot used to be one of the worst when it was totally "anti-gun". Then there is Chicago, L.A.,Phillie...did I say WASHINGTON D.C.

Nothing like a liar trying to get a Federal grant from other liars........

Just sayin'... ask Miami what happens when a "right to carry concealed" law is passed...The cimes of the "drug-lords" (read murder by thugs) simply damn near disappeared. In the later years liberals trying to pass PC legislation have softened up those gains...it's pure fact. What's our guy here say ?, "research is your best friend" (or something to that effect).

(should say InternationalMurder rate by nation/country0
