Very interesting an disappointing list for the people living in these neighborhoods. And that's if you actually believe the statistics.

Ever since the "reign" of former Chief Esserman, it is well known within the law enforcement community that he played with numbers. Many former PPD members felt he was an accountant rather than a police chief.

The current Chief, while a decent guy by all accounts, was one of his acolytes and most likely continuing the same crime reporting philosophy (under reporting or changing crime categories).

Noticeably conspicuous by his silence once again is Mayor Taveras. He has made a regular practice of fading into the background regarding any controversial issue in the capital city. It's exactly for this reason that he does not possess the leadership qualities the next Governor needs in order to deal with myriad of issues facing our state.
