  1. dear chief i think the fairness of your officers is a bit wrong with some of your younger officers i had a run in with sean p davis friday and he was not fair at all. you look at the officers and think their your friend and will help you but when a officers forces you to do something that your not phyically able to do and your arrested for it, how can you look at the police department any different then how i see them, theres only so much a person can do with a foot thats been broken, it never heals right, iam not saying you dont have some fine officers and most do a great job but some need more sensitive turn to partially handicapp people
