A Policewoman Speaks Out About the Merger

Who would you ask a question concerning ways to improve the Colts? Peyton, Dungy? That would make sense. So, why does the city (i.e. Bart) not listen to the FOP and Democratic councilor Franklin when it comes to the consolidation of the police forces?

A story on RTV6's website describes how Franklin wants to take things slow and make sure that we do everything we can to actually save money.

The whole consolidation issue was like a racecar going at full speed. No one ever checked to see if the car had working breaks. There is a reason that government and legislation takes time to pass. Government is not built to move fast which in turn keeps legislators from making huge mistakes.

Does anyone else think that maybe, just maybe, there are going to be hidden costs in a Fire merger that we don't know about. Consolidation is not a bad idea. It just needs to be done carefully and correctly. A little time and more thought will get us there.

the Mayor doesn't listen to Councillor Franklin or the FOP because they were against consolidation all the way through, and fought it hard. The Mayor was patient and won approval of the consolidation (the best decision to "Fix Indy Now.") You can't just be anti-change you silly Republicans the Mayor wants to "Fix Indy," and he's doing something about it...

it's not about being anti-change. it's just that some people in this city don't want to hold a coronation for peterson. that whole thing was just him trying to be in charge.

what really is sad is that frank anderson was doing a great job standing up to the mayor for a while and then folded like a cheap accordian. i actually respected anderson for his stance until then.

also, you should pass your ideas about not just being anti-change to Pat Bauer and the House Democrats.
