"Squeak squeak" went the in-crowd house mouse! "I loved Dave and Jerry! Democrats #1" said the mouse while eating his free cheese.

The change to Majors was driven by the Mayor's office. By then they had already begun the process of making the 2 departments into Metro. Abramson and his temporary stand-in Armstrong never liked the degree of independence that LPD civil service. He began by making it easier to fire the Chief years before. He got a much more politically palatable Chief in Doug H but he only had limited powers because the civil service Captains were prone to thinking too independently. The politicization of the department has turned it into the dysfunctional place you see today.
