S.F. Police Chief Announces Retirement!!!
(12-20) 14:40 PST SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco Police Chief Heather Fong, who rose through the ranks to become the city's first female chief nearly five years ago, announced her retirement Saturday on a radio program hosted by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
She plans to step down in April, once she reaches her fifth anniversary as San Francisco's top cop and after she helps with the search for her successor, she said.
"None of us can be chief forever," said Fong, 52. "I felt I've accomplished a lot."
Like the second straight year of 100+ homicides, the highest murder rate in over a decade, some of the lowest murder solving rates in the nation, robberies and burglaries soaring, and rock bottom morale at the SFPD.
"Becoming the chief was never my goal," Fong said. "But the opportunity presented itself - with a lot of encouragement, not only in the department but in the community."
And Fong ran the SFPD like Ron Dellums runs Oakland. Timidly. Half-heartedly. Badly.
But we mustn't be too harsh on Heather the Feather. In an area populated with spineless judges, the obstructionist OCC, a pro-criminal D.A., a certifiably insane Board of Supervisors, and a citizenry full of bleeding heart narcissist liberals, she couldn't have gotten anything done if she had tried.
Still... she could have tried.
Now we can only hope and pray that Kamala Harris follows suit. Or, at the very least, hope that the next Chief of Police has the guts to take on this crazy bitch and her stupid nutjob ideas.
