By: Blue Lives don’t matter in Chesterland
I have worked for many years as a police officer for the City of Cleveland and this Mayor has done much to disrespect officers. In Cleveland, they will politically appoint a Sgt. to be the Commander of a District, thereby making Captains and other officers answer to a Sgt. There is no respect for rank.
The City of Cleveland is a dangerous mess.
No problem in Chesterland. Jim Flaiz just coordinated the promotion of Craig Young from Sgt. to Captain, never mind he completely bypassed Lieutenant.
There is interest in Mark Purchases’ position because he is soon to retire. (Just not soon enough). No doubt, many officers are interested in the job, but they don’t stand a chance because Jim Flaiz has already paved the way for his backwoods buddy Craig Young to become Chief of Chesterland.
Jim Flaiz is scum, ask his good friend and neighbor Tom Meyer.
And Chief Purchase is a weak man if he can sell himself to Flaiz to make this sweetheart deal for Craig Young, who is by no means a stellar cop. Craig Young is a hack, nothing more than a political hack.
Good luck Chesterland, you are in for 20 years of mediocre at best.
