What's happening in this investigation? It appears all mention of this story has been removed from the archives of the Log Cabin Democrat. Strange-----

Well, The problem with this is; being stupid isn't a crime. No cover up, believe me, if Sheriff Byrd could burn the former Mayflower Chief to make his self look good, he would. Believe it or not, the Mayflower Chief didn't commit a crime. The convected felon did by owning a firearm. The Chief is a dumbazz, no question about that. He should have conducted a background check on this person before hiring him. Like I said, stupid isn't a crime.

Stupid may not be a crime, but ignorance of the law is no excuse for committing one. Anyone acting under the color of police authority is the responsibility of the department head. In this case it's the chief, and ultimately the mayor who hired a less than qualified individual to serve in the chief's position.
Still curious as to why the story has been deleted from the archives. It will take a lot of work to restore confidence in MPD. Good luck to the new chief!
