First, Last night Engine 3 was out of service, so I was on Engine 1. After the council meeting we had a call to city hall for a stuck elevator.
As we were walking up the ramp to city hall, Kathy Kane drove up, wound down her window, and yelled to us (in front of the large crowd leaving at the time)," It couldn't have happened to a nicer person!" and then laughed and drove away.
Want to guess who was inside the elevator (they were out when we got there)?
Who could have inspired such an unprofessional outburst?
It doesn't really matter, but it was Linda Urban.
This shows just what kind of person Kathy Kane is. Why would ANYONE vote for such an unprofessional person?
Second, and related to the recent shooting. Where are the new handguns the police were supposed to get? That was back in May. Five months. They are probably sitting in a storage room next to the promised laptops for the Police cruisers and Fire Engines. Unbelievable.
BTW... The Beretta 96 was introduced in 1990, the Glock 21... 1990. The Parent platforms The Beretta 92 was introduced in 1975, and the Glock 17..... 1982.
IMO (and most others) the Glock IS a MUCH better platform. But if they wanted to update to a more modern design, it should be the Smith & Wesson M&P introduced in 2005 and it has a STELLAR record, rivaling the Glock.
