    Wow, I just read about this today. This happened near where I live. I don't believe for a second the officers will be cleared though. I think that's wishful thinking by the union president.

    I lived two miles from there and often have been by where it happened, E. Mulberry being the access street from 281 to Broadway.

    Not sure who'll "win" this one. Chief McManus has my great respect whatever the case may be; he really improved SAPD and made it into a professional organization after coming to S.A. from D.C. almost six years ago. He's encountered police union difficulty before.

    San Antonio PD was a stinking mess from the top down until they hired Chief McManus a few years ago. All i know is what I've read in the news but it seems he came in and started cleaning house. It takes a while to weed out widespread recklessness and corruption. Lots of hoops to jump through to terminate an unfit officer and it takes strict cooperation from higher ranking supervisors! McMannus has my respect too!

    MOO
