Police Department Disbanded After Allegations of Corruption

As much as I tend to be "anti-cop" so much of the time, I am concerned that politics rather than facts may have driven this decision. Regardless, it is a decision that consolidates power in a larger, more powerful department which may be just as rife with corrpution and/or wrongdoing. After all, even in this decision the officer who were all laid off were told to apply at the county. We may cry foul about out local hometown departments so many times, but at least we still have hometown control over police issues. Seems rather heavy-handed and counterproductive to me, this decision.

Hire a better chief, shove bad cops out the door. But disbanding the department simply means that the mayor wanted to wash her hands of the problems, not solve them.
