This should be good. Can't wait to read how the politicians conspired to engineer this one.

Just look at this guy! Is this the face of a "peace" officer or just someone who's in on a "piece" of the action?

I expect nothing more nor less from a place called Redbankistan.

According to the caption, Beamis, that is the Mayor of Redbank, not the former Police Chief.

But then, he DOES have an interesting, character-filled face, doesn't he? Reminds me a bit of Marlon Brando playing the elder Don Vito insult or judgment intended, just an observation.

I suspect the good Mayor might like to make the City Manager "an offer he can't refuse"...
