As you have admitted, 13 years ago or not, the fact is he has a criminal record, period. If the mayor knew this and did not pass this information on to the city before they made the hire, the mayor would have been neglecting his duty! This guy was wanting to be a cop and yes, a cop should be held to a higher standard than most. Same for teachers, preachers, etc., or anyone that by profession is in a place of power and trust. Kudos to the mayor for shedding light on this fact. Further, is is not the mayor that hires and fires and you are not putting that fact forward at all. Last, if this guy has a beef, let him come forward and not silently stand behind his wife's skirt and also the crowd of politicaly disgruntled!
