What is ironic about this story's citing Phoenix's highest auto theft rate in the country is that, in the name of 'diversity', Phoenix's Mayor Skip Rimza [firstname.lastname@example.org] appointed a black as police chief, a Harold L. Hurtt. He is a member of the NAACP and was put into power in 1998 after the head of the Phoenix Chapter of the NAACP, Oscar Tillman, led a dishonest crusade that alleged racism within the police department. The chicken mayor of Phoenix hired one of their members to appease the loud-mouthed Tillman and his leftist black agitators.
Crime has shot way up under this apparently incompetent police chief. But of course it will be a long time before any white mayor fires him for it.
