It's good to see the other officers doing whatever they have to do to find him and arrest him. Hopefully they will fire him asap!

Good job by the responding officers.

It's a shame to see so many officers with problems. But the worst offender of all has gone free of charges. Several months ago an assistant chief of police got in an accident on Union Street.

It's alleged that he was out drinking but that's all been swept under the carpet and he gets away with it. He is immune to disciplinary action because he is so important.

If this guy isn't fired by Monday, the Police Chief Chaires should have to explain to the public the reasoning behind why he’s still on the force.

I would be really surprised if he, Hunter, was some super cop or something like that.

chief chaires should be explaining why he is still chief and why they can not seem to even help their own officers. WHAT IS YOUR JOB AGAIN???? SO MANY USELESS ADMINISTRATORS AND NOT ENOUGH HELP FOR YOUR FALLING OFFICERS. YOU SHOULD BE A SHAMED OF YOURSELF, ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!
