I would like to hear what APD has to say in response to that fake ass press conference. Thorpe also needs to share when he found out about the death of Mr. Quinto in December. Why did it take a month to say something?
Mr. Thorpe has now lied multiple times on record whether its his 8 can’t wait request, misleading people on body cameras, and now claiming he didn’t know where Mike Barbanica was. This man cannot be trusted even if he does have some good ideas. He blames the previous mayor, ANYONE on the council can bring anything forward.

Another great episode and thanks for going item by item on Thorpes press conference yesterday. I agree with the both of you, Thorpe gets a C grade until we have more details. I also like Burkholders idea that now that Thorpe puts this out, let the Chief go line by line and talk about what is being done or not being done because like the both of you, APD is already doing a lot of what Thorpe is proposing and just another press conference to hear himself talk. Throwing Barbanica under the bus like that was petty and uncalled for but then again, we are talking about Lamar Thorpe.

Remember everyone. There is no plan to reduce crime by this city council, just blame it on the police department and handicapping them even more.
