I swear, these photos of the police chief are the most unflattering photos of a humanoid. I can find better photos of a person on these Asheville dating websites, and even those are pretty pitiful.

The Sh!Z!t has really hit the fan today. More officers coming forward to report the underhanded goings on at the APD! Former police chief and sgt. stepping up to slap the wingnut mayor back into the ozone! EEO Complaints! Lawsuite! Thank you mayor and city council for the explosion about to happen. Just telling the truth and letting the chips fall where they should could've been the route you chose. Instead you opted to stand by your man and hope all you could sweep under the carpet would be forgotton.

Good grief what a mess and all in the laps of the ridiculous Asheville City Council BOZOS! You gotta love it.

Where are you Esther Manheimer?? Speak up! You want to be mayor, don't you? Have you nothing to say now at all? Waiting for this to blow over so you can resume talking about what a great job you've done? I'd like to see you demonstrate your leadership skills RIGHT NOW. What do you have to say????????

No doubt. Since she IS running for mayor I'd think her opinion would be something people would want to hear. Does she support this crap? Did she oppose it? Does she have the guts to speak up or is she just a little sheeple pretending to be a leader? No one wants a spineless mayor that hides behind the skirts of the existing mayor awaiting her next marching orders.

What is your viewpoint Mrs. Manheimer?

I guess she doesn't want to be part of City Council or have her name attached to this because of her election. I doubt anyone will allow her that get out of jail free card. Except Anderson maybe.

We have a chance at a very good mayor with John Miall, whose campaign should be on by now!

Also, Jonathan Wainscott should be a good replacement for Gordon Smith on Council.

Manheimer had NO CLUE about all this Police Chief saga just a few weeks ago, and could not imagine taking action as a LEADER of the city...that tells you all you need to know about this dangerously inept council.

Not holding my breath. Something tells me they're just dragging this out as long as possible until this fades out of the public memory.

Kind of like the firefighter-shooting-a-civilia n, which everyone pretty much forgot.

Oh no. It's going to hit the fan. There's a tape and now the fraternal order of police are involved. Hide and watch. This will be good.

Splatt and drip. When the FOP gets involved with the force behind it, it's going to be good.

How do you like your progressive council now? A bunch of crooked lying hacks covering for their man simply because he is black and a liberal. At least we have common sense reigning in Raleigh and Asheville mapped out of power. He he he.

We *have* given the boy more than a break. The boy's an idiot.

The father (aka "the Asheville Chief of Police") knowingly and willingly broke the law, deceived the people, and is an adult.
