The Fort Worth police department’s core problem is that it has become a fractured social club based on politically correct diversity and lowered hiring standards to achieve it.
What else over time explains so much unprofessional police misconduct?
The best police chiefs in the country would be handcuffed solving such underlying problems without intelligent political support.
Is there anyone besides me who recognizes the obvious core problem in attempting to solve such a differentiated and fractured organization?
Just how many different, agended, opinionated and diverse groups and committees are indeed needed to come up with solutions to all kinds of complaints of internal and external racial strife and alleged police misconduct?
Nothing lasting or close to effective has ever been adopted by such a wide-ranging group.
So, listen up: Only two are needed — the police chief and an unbiased police commission appointed with no political strings attached.
