Langford plans big police force changes- al.com

So, what does Crazy Larry want to do with the Birmingham PD? Well, he wants new uniforms and badges, for one thing. Seems like a needless expense to me. New cars, too, and that seems a bit more justified, though I don’t know the current state of the fleet.

Langford has said his plans are to bring renewed integrity to the department, saying that for the police to be effective, the community must have the highest level of respect for law enforcement officers. During his campaign, Langford said that officers abusing the public trust by hiding behind a badge and a gun won’t be allowed to stay. Officers, he said in the campaign, were not hired to victimize the people they were paid to protect.

Sounds good to me, though it won’t make him popular with cops. On the other hand, one of his candidates for chief is Hoover’s probably corrupt chief Nick Derzis. Way to restore pride in the badge. He’ll probably wind up hiring Fairfield’s Pat Mardis is my guess. I don’t know if Mardis is corrupt.

  1. Amazingly lucid analysis, for a drugged-up librarian!

  2. Officers, he said in the campaign, were not hired to victimize the people they were paid to protect.

    And with this statement, the last white person living in Birmingham decides to move to Shelby County.

  3. Hiring Hoover’s chief makes sense if the plan is roust Mexicans and terrorize shoplifters.
