Rejoice, the shucking and jiving inept chief of police has been fired. Upon being promoted to chief he immediately demoted dozens of commanders and set up his own regime of yes men and yes women. The demoted officers sued for lack of due process, won their lawsuit and the city of Dallas paid millions for the chief's power play. The officers who didn't sue (and some who did sue) ended up taking their considerable experience to the suburbs where they were appreciated. Several are now chiefs in other Texas cities. All the while the crime rate in Dallas rose. He presided over a narcotics division who paid informants hundreds of thousands of dollars to set up innocent citizens. The informants planted gypsum (sheet rock powder) on innocent citizens and turned them over to narcotics detectives. The innocent citizens were jailed and imprisoned, many accepting plea bargains because they were poor. The chief defended the investigations. All the while the crime rate in Dallas rose. He severed ties with the FBI and pulled Dallas out of all sorts of federal crime fighting dollars because his pride was wounded when the FBI investigated some of his shady past. All the while the crime rate in Dallas rose. He took officers off the streets and put them in "rolling roadblocks" during rush hour to teach Dallas drivers about speed limits. All the while the crime rate in Dallas rose. He fought with the city council and refused to be held accountable. All the while the crime rate in Dallas rose. In fact, Dallas has had the highest crime rate in the nation the entire time Bolton was chief. But no more. Today he was fired. His lawyer plead the race card and vowed to bring suit. The "minority community" is outraged and vows to find a new minority police chief (qualifications be damned, just make sure it's a minority). But at least Bolton is gone. Dallas is a big circus and the clowns run the store on taxpayer's money.
