He is winning new fans because no one asks the right questions. No one seems to be concerned about the allegations of tampering with evidence and no one seems to be asking themselves the question; "Why would anyone make up information of evidence tampering from the very office that investigates these matters?" Furthermore, you need someone with basic statistics to show you that if you saturate an area with police officers, crime will go down. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Savannah didn't have to go through this scandal to figure that out. Savannah sounds awkwardly desperate.

A lot of people in Savannah have their political reputations and their jobs on the line over this guy having been brought to town. And Savannah acted with the best intentions for taking care of their city when they hired him. Its all very unfortunate... Sometimes its tough to take it on the chin but, in the long run, it may be less costly. -I agree with Mr. Lewis.

Lets let the facts come out in their own time- Meanwhile, lets let the guy do the job he was hired for. Why weaken his credibility now for what may turn out to be unfounded lawsuits? Lawsuits are filed for many reasons other than the ones stated. If it turns out the allegations are true- then I will be the first one to support his dismissal, but until the final results of the lawsuits are in- lets not judge the guy we are depending on for our safety
