He makes about $60,000 more than the Mayor and will be the last one to push back. Chiefs like that will quit and go to another Chiefs job before they push back. Mayors don't want to hire a Chief who pushes back. The problem is that the political machine has always sought to appease the antipolice activists because they know how to stir up all the hatred and resentment against city hall, which police see every day but politicians are normally insulated from. Don't expect Fischer or Conrad to do anything but stay the course without a lot of new pressure being exerted by the citizens and metro council.
