You hear the mayor we now have fine police officers. well mayor all that s#$t you have on your plate is more important then the people who protect us. it seems you do not care about their safety. Yes the tasers were abused by the officers before but what do you do hire one back who wrote the rules for using them. The officers that protet us now are alot better then before. they changed the police cars to black wear black clothes, what were they thugs, thats the impression they put off. No not this group clear your plate and do something listen to your chief, he is not your fire chief who is going to roll over to you. If you are so concerned go down the street to the bay and get their rules, and see how their chief controls them. you never hear of them being sued, so your excuse like you is full of hot air. We are concerned about our safety but also our officers who keep us that way. If you hold them accountable and review the incidents you will have no problems with abuse. I think the bay has cameras on theirs so there is no way of hiding what is done. Thank you a very concerned police officers parent and voter.

Who's momma is blogging is irrelevant. What is important is that she is saying what needs to be said. That isn't the Waveland PD we have all known over the years. Kenny Hurt has done a great job turning around the reputation. If that were the fire department they would have the equipment back even if there was 20 lawsuits. The fact of the issue is the all mighty mayor doesn't care about the police. A safe bet would be to place money on it that he has made more trips to the Waffle House than to the police department sine he took office. The reality if it is if that was "JR's mommy" he'll probably catch grief for his momma shedding a proper light on King David.

Mayor Garcia says does not want to give back taser because he had been named as a defendant in 14 different City of Waveland lawsuits and he believes if the plaintiff wins one of the lawsuits he would lose 'everything'. Seemingly Mayor Garcia's attorney has never explained to Mayor Garcia the definition of gross negligence.

Chief Hurt has changed everything about Waveland Police Department and has surrounded himself with responsible officers. If Chief Hurt decides to go before the Board of Alderman and the Mayor to ask for the WPD to be allowed to have taser I sure hope the motions gives approved. If you can't trust the Police Chief and his officers to use taser correctly than you shouldn't trust to have lethal weapons either.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but King David most likely isn't placing anything to do with the Tasers (or the PD most likely) on the meeting agendas. This means the council can't pass a measure. If you read the city's charter, the mayor controls the contents of the docket. Judging by his attitude in the interview it will never make it to the docket to be voted on. Once again, if it were his golden boys at the fire department, it would be there with 50 lawsuits pending. He has something against those poor saps at the PD. Sort of sad when you figure he started as a sherrif and drives around in a truck with a blue line tag and lights all over it. There's a term for people like that. Control freak.
