Go away Hamilton

I'm glad he's gone. He has chased away or fired a lot of good people who did the job right, all in the name of saving a few dollars.
But the cost (in money) saving it brings, dosen't even come close to the price of experance the Department looses.
Good job you old goat, think about that if you ever need a police oofficer or someone else in the department with experance & you get some "green roookie" with almost no experance.
Farewell

Of course he resinged when ask. He was brought in by former Mayor Womack to get rid of people the mayor didn't like, even if those peoople were an asset to the department & he did a pretty good job of that.
But that included elimiinating some they should have kept because of the training they had. That willl meann less safty for the officers on the street & in a growing town like Rogers you don't
get rid of good employees with experance.
Just a thought

Hamilton, why don't you do all of us uneducated hick police folk from Arkansas a favor and completely remove yourself from the Rogers area. Go back to your ivory tower in Springfield and leave us alone. Don't worry we'll be just fine without your lying, backstabbing, bullying self around. We'll manage to make it somehow. Sorry the whole "touchy, feely, new age, progressive" way of doing police work didn't reverberate to well with the majority of "your" subjects down here.On your way out of town why don't you see if you can convince the handful of brown nosers that still work at the P.D., and are currently mourning your "loss", to move back to Springfield with you.
Be gone.
Keep him

Dear Rogers AR,
Sorry you had to deal with that moron for the last couple of years. However, please keep him..we don't want him back.
Not a chance

We don't want him & never did. He was one thorn in the backside, brought in by another thorn in the backside. Now they are both gone & Rogers is left to clean up the mess they left.
WHO GOT THE SHAFT

Hamilton got a large raise from that of prior Chief = The Shaft

Employees endured a boss who put money first.= The Shaft

Citizens were led to believe there was not a gang problem but trouble youths = The Shaft

Long time employees got card board badges as retirement gifts = The shaft

Promoted underservimg people over more qaulified people = The Shaft

Unfare discipline = The Shaft

Loyal long term emoyees were treated like dirt = The Shaft

The one (Womack) who did not do their research before hiring Hamilton with no hiring process, Sat by and did nothing of emploee complaints while running a campain, and has had no consequence for the mess he left = The Shaft

Having to resign from a position for being an ***= Justice

Having enough courage to do something about a mess left by someone else = Priceless

I am with you compleatly on this. Hamilton was a major set-back for the quality of the PD here in Rogers & for the safty of it's citizens. That stinks

So killer Coleman Brackney gets hired as Sulpher Springs' new Police Chief while Rogers Police Chief Hamilton mysteriously resigns. Lowell's Police Chief gets killed in a motorcycle accident while Bella Vista Police Chief Ken Farmer continues to flirt with disaster.

Never a dull moment!
