Separated . . . Or Connected?

Are these stories connected?

My gut tells me no, but what the hell do I know. I had "heard" they were basically splitsville for some time and were just gutting it out 'till after the election.

Disquieting when things one "hears" in this vein turn out to be true.

The reference was not to a single night's events on the North Side . . . but instead to a long-rumored pattern of conduct involving police officers assigned to certain VIP-related details (which reports benefit from at least some corroboration at the moment).

The objections -- inside and outside the police bureau -- to orders and assignments provided to certain officers, and the conduct of those officers, seem to have been percolating for some time.

The police-related angles may be the ones that merit monitoring.

So if I follow your hypothesis, this relates to the public paying for a certain kind of security mainly from a certain class of officer for a certain kind of assignment. Greeat. If that actually happens to be true, he better not have inappropriately disciplined any officers for failing to get with the program -- and if he did, he better be extremely accommodating to them now. Because unless someone presses that complaint, its not gonna get explored independently by the media and in my opinion it probably should not be.
