    I agree, why bring in an outsider when someone from inside is already 'doing' the job, and I suspect doing it well. Hire the BEST QUALIFIED person regardless of race or anything else should they choose to hire someone else. I'm sick of less qualified getting jobs based solely on 'diversity'.

    Screen the applications to meet EEOC standards and then give the job to Katherine. The City will NOT find a more competent person to make Chief of Police.
