I too wonder why a small town chief of police needs 4 stars on his uniform to show that he is in charge of about 30 people. My bet is because he knows nothing about the military. and that he has a tremendous ego. This Leland saga is getting national attention; and we should all be credited with continuing education hours on how NOT to lead a police department, how NOT to lead a city, and how NOT to respond to a community and public safety crisis with the local media just for following the stories. I can't imagine how the four star general is going to be able to keep his job with all of this. But the way the city leaders have mismanaged this, I would not be surprised if he is wearing five stars before too long; and that he survies.
