Welcome chief, glad you're aboard and best of luck. Oops, now what will happen when all those who say I dislike the Obama because he's black find I like this man? Enough to drive liberals nuts!

Welcome aboard Chief!

Get ready for all the PC crowd to try to wiggle into law enforcement procedures, policies and
basically getting in the way of doing policing.

Good luck - Chief Schultz was a good man and did a great job.

looks like obama lovers don't like corny even though he's right. I don't like obama either, and for the same reason and I have no problem with chief banks either.

Why do make up BS strawmen?

Why in the first place would you bring up race and diss the president in a story about the police chief?

Because of racists like yourself who have accused me of not liking Obama because he's black. Well, Banks is black and I like and support him. Gives you heartburn to have to admit it huh, that I don't like Obama because of his policies and actions instead of the color of his skin. Liberal punks like you just don't get it<sigh>.

Being a Rep and liking H Balderas, a Dem, probably gives you a cramp in your lungs too huh?

BS lie, but the racism the president faces is undeniable.

Maybe so, maybe not, but certainly not from me - RACIST. My ability to look beyond what you choose to consider the norm irritates the hell out of you doesn't it<snicker>? You don't need to make excuses for the Obama, he's a terrible president and is proving it to the entire world. Part of why we are the laughing stock of the planet and that few take us serious, even our own allies.

I seem to recall you saying that too but I'd like to know how you turned this into what you just said? I saw no place where corndogz said anything about hating America. Are you avoiding the issue?

I think this was a brilliant decision for Banks. For no less than 100 reasons, it is a great opportunity.

Talk about walking away a winner!!

Congrats and all the best!

Sad but look at this with eyes wide open, Mayor Berry used Banks to get the minority vote, the APOA vote, the Dems vote and then showed his true color by not offering the job to Banks permanently. More waste of your beloved taxpayer money, only to add to his Republican alliances...sad. You'll see with his new appointed Chief, my point will be made.

Now what are your thoughts on Chief Banks retiring and taking a job in Texas? Do you think Mayor Berry should have offered him the job permanently? Just asking your opinion old guy, don't get defensive. You know how I feel.

I think Berry did the right thing. If he'd have offered Banks the position before all the candidates were interviewed he'd have been showing major bias and would have been severely ridiculed for it as well as short changing the residents of Abq. He stated some time ago when a decision would likely be made and stuck with it. Neither Berry nor Banks likely had any idea Banks would get the offer he did and so be it.

Banks made a choice because a much better option came open to him, a salary of $140k vs the $137k he gets now. He can sell back $160k in unused sl/vac (taxed at 44.15%) and gets a $80k pension on top of it thru PERA. And he's going to a city w/ 1/5th the population of Abq. Smart move on his part.

I'd have liked to see Banks stay but he had and made the better choice for him and his family when the opportunity arose - smart man! Whether the FNG or Banks will end up having been the better choice will always be a object of debate.

Best of luck Mr Banks!

You'd have complained about anyone who was the interim chief, regardless of their ethnicity, your hate for Berry reflects that in your drivel above. TO you its all about race, not about the best choice, qualified or otherwise. So sad but it further illustrates your racist attitude.
