Why would anyone want to work for this liberal city. Cops will leave and no new ones will come. Good luck protecting yourself.

The PAPD should be setting a more positive example for others to follow as there is no room left for hypocracy, lack of departmental transparency, and incomplete investigations pertaining to officer misconduct.

The K-9 Corps should also be disbanded if their handlers are incapable of using police dogs properly.
