LITIGATION. Can't wait to see what this could be about. Guesses are: 1 Trumped up complaint against the one council member who stands up for the community. 2. Lawsuits brought by those who where terrorized then humiliated by the police, school administrators, and city council members who knew the "live fire" involved masked men running into a classroom fireing a gun pointed at people some of whom fell to the ground as though they were shot. Then when it's all over everyone in the room who knew it was staged had a good chuckle at those who were picking themselves off the floor, scared, confused, hurt, and now upon seeing the chuckles and smirks, felt humiliated. Had it been anyone other than the police, with the support of city and school officials they would have been arrested. What were they thinking. How can these people call themselves professionals. Incompetence. Negligence. Mob mentality. Arrogance. And for those who think it is no big deal let someone you don't know take a gun without notice and without inspecting the gun yourself point it at one of your family members or friends and pull the trigger. No one has that right for whatever reason or cause. 3. Litigation related to mismanagement of city funds. Someones been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, or money is just missing due to bad management. Wasn't there close to $400,000 missing in a recent audit that had yet to be explained. 4. The city has reached the point it is unable to meet its cash flow needs and needs to prepare for future litigation.
The contracted attorneys for the city must be thrilled. Christmas is coming early for them. They get to bill probably 300 to 500 an hour on all this possible future litigation.
