    “Tinajero says the recruitment argument is ridiculous, claiming that the department recently attracted 1,000 applicants for 20 open officer positions.” I find comments like this a bit shallow in thought. The police department can attract one million applicants unfortunately not all applicants meet the requirements needed to be a police officer.

      Yeah, you’re right.

      Not everyone has a dad, brother, uncle or cousin who works for the department.

      It takes a special DNA breed.

        The majority of police officers are straight applicants from the pool of applicants. But just like there are bad lawyers and doctors and occasional bad apple does slip through. No testing process is perfect but the effort is made.

          LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has 5 relatives in the PD.

          But I’m sure it’s just a quirky coincidence.

            That’s news to me….

    Its mind boggling to learn, once again, of politicians spending taxpayer money on the effect of a “problem” rather than the cause.

    Jose Solorio selling himself to the highest bidder…again. Is it any wonder why this guy fell to the bottom of the political food chain? He’ll rent a closet in Stanton to run for City Council there after Santa Ana. SMH.

    Why would anyone expect anything to be different?

    One clown leaves. Another takes his place.

    How about working with Santa Ana residents to develop an “Accessory Dwelling Unit” (granny flat) ordinance? As we no longer have one thanks to the State of California. Without an ordinance on the books it is pretty much the wild west in Santa Ana concerning granny flats.
