Doug Palmer has lost his mind.
The Times of Trenton reported shortly after noon that Doug Palmer would hold a press conference at 12:30 pm EDT to announce the appointment of Irving Bradley, Jr. as the new Trenton Police Director.
This is without a doubt the most blatantly irresponsible move made to date by the despotic egomaniacal Palmer.
Bradley does not meet the requirements of bona fide residency. He's been a city employee for over a year and only recently registered to vote here.
He's got a criminal record.
He was deemed unqualified for the position of Communications Director, yet he's qualified to hold the position the Communications Director reports to?
Interestingly, there are a couple of items pending on this weeks council docket regarding organizational structure of the police and fire departments and the qualifications for the police director. How coincidental.
Palmer is out of his mind if he thinks this will fly. And the city is in no position to fight another round of court battles to prove Doug wrong again.
City council had better stand tall on this one or there will be an open revolt in the streets.
