S.F. could face weeks without a police chief because they are conducting a "nationwide search"
This is the problem with the corporatization of government. Suddenly, everything turns into a "nationwide search." Are there superstar police chiefs out there, like superstar CEO's? I hope not.
There must be someone in the SFPD who could do a creditable job without having to go through a months-long "nationwide search" to replace the utterly unremarkable Chief Fong. A local would certainly be better able to deal with the innumerable anti-cop activists in SF. He would certainly be able to get through the City's warren of streets and neighborhoods without a map.
