Amos, Ives, Root...
It's called a budget, everyone seems to have one except our governments. All things you mentioned above are necessary. 4 IPADS for the IT department of the City of Chattanooga are not.
There are plenty of places where the city is wasting money. Littlefield's solution is to leave the fat, and raise the tax. UNACCEPTABLE. It's time for some accountability.
Tired of the CDP... they, much like the mayor, work for themselves and not the citizens. Next thing you know they'll be assaulting people driving their spouse to the emergency room.
Can't help but think this couldn't have been handled better. Somehow it seems that sending the SWAT team after someone with a history of mental health issues and pumping his house full of tear gas should be 10 steps down the ladder on the go to list of how to serve a warrant.
With a little effort, this could have been avoided.
This is disgusting... he was elected to represent the wishes of the people, he failed to do so and therefore the people of Chattanooga have chosen to relinquish him of his duties. This all seems very cut and dry to me.
This judge, and his ruling, are a farce.
