The word going around is that Dan will get it. I'm happy to know it won't be Estelle. She'd be as horrible at the job as that ex-interim loser Harold.

You go Elise----------I'd vote Johnson any day to Sister Estelle. She don't know which end is up let alone running the city. It's in bad enough shape as it is. Between her and Harold, the entire force would probably walk off. Can you blame them?

God help us if its anyone other than Johnson, I work for the city and I'm praying we get him. Maybe our standards can be raised to that of the County and we know he works well with the Sheriff. I look at some of my coworkers and cringe at the unprofessional way they look. Some appear as if they need EMS after going 10-0 on foot. I'm ready to be proud of where I work instead of this constant humilation we city officers have been getting.(someone pleeeease tell me Weezie aint gonna get this!!)

What happened? Did he bust your stupid behind? We all know he's an attorney and handles legal affairs within the Sheriffs Department (another plus for the city), but I was thinking ol boy chuckles austin would probably be to damn intimidated by Dan Johnson to ever let him get in. Come on Chuckie prove me wrong, just once prove me wrong.

Dedication, commitment, integrity, professionalism, and attorney won't get you anywhere, just ask the governor. Now race!?! That will be the deciding factor.

You must be a "sister" of hers, You speak about as well as she does. Just what the city of columbia needs, an ebonic speaking woman. Let her keep on keeping on just cleaning desks and "assisting" Caldwell. God help the city of she makes chief.

I do not think the out of towners have a chance. Just going on who I think will get the job crown Estell. CPD officers who want to make arrest and police get stepping. Are most gone already? For those of you who can ride around in high crime areas with you windows up and see nothing congratulations a little butt kissing and the promotion is yours. Improve your chances with a diploma or certificate or two. Oh! go attend the right church also.

Since when did meter maids have the authority to make an arrest? In that case, she arrested about as many people as did Johnson. I know she didn't arrest anyone while working in records or working baby-sitting with Koban! Babysitting and checking on the elderly doesn't qualify for being a chief. Maybe her personal life needs to be cleaned up before she tries to clean up anyone else's life. What goes around comes around and George and Weezie are well known about the antics at CPD. Don't kid yourself..........wake up and smell the roses. She can't even talk, so I assume you want to be her PIO huh?????????

Well Well Well

Looks like Chuckie is about to decide.

You know he wants Weezie. Who else could be stupid enough to do what he says and not question his ignorant orders? Besides she has less "real time" on the street than he does. Maybe she can "fan the heat" for him, that is about as close as her illiterate *** has ever come to working the street.

I can not believe the media is giving her a free ride. She is a worse public speaker than that idiot Reed running for RCSD Sheriff. Have you seen the WLTX video footage. If you look in the background there is Estele at the event supporting this idiot. She probably wrote his answers to the questions in the video.

37 years in law enforcement does not equal 37 years of work experience. She is so out of touch with current police tactics and procedures that she could never catch up. Actually she has never been caught up. When she was hired there was not an academy so she had Norm C. as FTO and he probably taught her what he knew. Took two minutes and her training was done.

Think things at CPD are bad now? If she gets it there will be a stampede of officers from CPD. It will be funny to see how bad it gets. She can't keep her personal life in order so how can she run a dept? Maybe she can bring her son back to help. He was fun, he provided a lot of laughs.

The only good thing about it will be her giving orders to Dod at SWAT incidents.

The only other entertainment will be between her and Dowling on who will sent out the most mistakes in their memo's. They may be mother and daughter.

If Estelle gets the Job......

Chief Weezie's Top Ten New Records at CPD

1. Will have the largest size belt of any Chief. But not female CPD officer. Some records can not be broken and she would have to eat 10,000 calories a day to pass the current CPD record holder.

2. Can make more mistakes in her memo's than items that are correct.

3. Between boyfriend Norm and son Q she will single handedly make the nepotism policy unenforceable.

4. Will make getting a job at RCSD and LCSD like getting season tickets to Clemson. You will have to be willed a job to get hired by either sheriff.

5. Will have tackier uniforms than Chuckie ever had. She will have more brass and yellow trim that even the US Surgeon General will look like a private compared to her.

6. She will get CPD a Gulf Stream Jet, and set a new place where no former CPD Chief has scored, and enter the CPD mile high club with Norm.

7. First "female" Chief to have a illegitmate child by an admin assistant.

8. Instead of going to Japan on tax payer dollars and bringing back the ineffective KOBANs, she will go to Alaska and bring back Igloo's as substations in the projects.

9. She will make dog sleds the new police car for CPD. About as smart as Chuckies wanting to take away patrol officer's guns when he got back from London. Think we got gangs now imagine what it would be like if the idiot had taken our guns?

10. Can rename the agency the Columbia Soul Patrol if she gets the job.

AMEN to that! He thinks he knows how each division/department should perform their daily duties but has not a clue since he has never had any "hands-on" experience in any given field.

There isn't any need in having a one party discussion since that is the way it would be considering he "THINKS" he knows everything. So it isn't lack of "stones", it is a lack of having time to waste.

ROFLMAO! You should be at the comedy house .. I swear I'm outta there if weezie gets in. I'm keeping fingers crossed for Dan Johnson. I agree with the person that said he'll be good for our department. But weezie, she'll be a public disgrace! I expect her to show up one day wearing a grill in her mouth
