I had to go back and revisit this post because we have put some much focus on the resignations politicians and bankers that we tend to forget what is going on right under our nsoes.  Check this out folks!  Very interesting indeed.

G20 Riot Police 3What Is The Common Denominator

1. Gaithersburg, MD Gaithersburg Police Chief John King resigned with little explanation last week, leaving his colleagues and community members wondering what happened.

2. Guttenberg, IA Police Chief Resigns After Seven Months on the Job, no reason

3. Harrisburg, PA – Richard Pickles retires after serving a month as Harrisburg police chief

4. Culpeper, VA When Scott Barlow announced two weeks ago he would step down from his job as chief of police with the town of Culpeper, it caught a lot of people off guard, including us.

5. Carbondale, IL – Police Chief Resigns, no reason given

6. Austin, MN – Several Austin City Council members said they were “shocked” by Austin Police Chief Paul Philipp’s resignation Tuesday morning.

7. Jonesboro, GA – The City of Jonesboro’s new police chief has resigned, five weeks after being named to the top job.

8. Manassas, VA – found this quote: “I hope the Chief enjoys his retirement. Between his service in the Secret Service, Fairfax and Manassas, he’s earned it.”

9. West Covina, CA – Tolich, a 21-year veteran of the force, retired nine years before he was eligible for full retirement benefits, Finance Director Thomas Bachman said.

In an email Tolich sent to members of the department, he tells fellow officers that a personal matter involving him and his family led to the sudden departure.

These were either benign stories or little info given.
(Bearing in mind that a seasoned cop could probably make a pretty believable alibi for leaving.)
