The loss of leadership occured when Jaynes was placed on probation. When a Leader or Commander has been found guilty of violating the rules (hence the probation and restitution)-how can he enforce those same rules on others? Would he adopt a "Don't do as I do, do as I say" approach to leadership or management? Many a military leader has been relieved for cause, although the subsequent investigation found them not guilty, because they had lost the ability to lead. Leadership requires the faith and confidence of the lead...not fear, intimidation or rettribution. Chief Jaynes lost the public's confidence and faith; it was time for him to go.
