Re: “The Gambit Interview: NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas

I'm very disappointed in the Gambit, I expected some hard charging questions. This was a total softball interview. I'm even more disappointed the chief's performance. We should clean the NOPD house starting with the chief... He has implemented a good-old-boy system to beat any other good-ole-boy system around... yet not one question from Gambit about it.

Serpas promotes his friends to an untouchable position, outside of civil service requirements and pays them 125K each. That's a 40% raise for some, and less work. Plus, some of these guys... Holsli included, spent not one day in college. However, if I wanted to apply as an entry level police recruit I'd need prove that I had at least 60 college credit hours. This department has become an even bigger joke under Serpas' leadership.

Another interesting question would've been ...Did Serpas' father's friendship with Moon have anything to do with Mitch's decision to select this man? I think yes. I would love to hear how Serpas would explain exactly how he has separated himself from the NOPD old guard. No other candidate for the chief's position could boast of such close ties to the mayor or his family.

Further the IG's, "investigation" of Serpas and his involvement with Anytime Solutions must be the fastest investigation in the history of the office. The "investigation" of the primary players is still on-going, yet the IG has already determined that Serpas is clear?!?! How? This makes no sense and is an insult to thinking members of the community. Hopefully the Mayor will wise up and toss this albatross out of his inner circle.
