Why do the mayor and council members (most council members) not want a decent, honest, upstanding, man with great credentials to hold the title of Police Chief in the city? Could there possibly be a lot of hidden skeletons in the closets or possibly corruption within?

Apparently because he was lying to everyone! Let's fire a good officer to hire a crony with a record. What record? He tried to expunge it. Boo Keith Grounsell and Geneva LAwrence.

Uh, maybe the mayor fired the dude for being corrupt? It's almost been a year and the cat has yet to file a lawsuit. He's shady, and sounds like he's trying to get a hush settlement out of the city. I say well done mayor for not caving to this jerk.

Maybe he has 3 years to file a lawsuit and is waiting for SLED and the Attorney General to indict people after the almost year long investigation. Timing is very important in a lawsuit.

Grounsell never hired anyone. The applicant your talking about was arrested and never convicted of DUI. SLED cleared him to be a police officer again, plus he had over 15 years experience and was highly decorated. Lots of misinformation out there SCismad.
