Don't you see this as more of an internal issue? We know there is no love lost between Carty and the police force. I think driving this issue is only going to make us more of laughing stock.

Carty was directing his disrespect at the Marines, it was at the police administration.

I agree it is far past time Carlton was gone but lets not pull down the nation's ill will on our city. We are already the subject of many jokes, lets not add another.

After all if the Marines were coming to town and it was widely known we'd have seen this in the media. Heck, we'd have local vendors selling food to our heros. This could have been good for us but local politics f'd it up AS USUAL.

Now we have partisan bickering makeing the problem worse AS USUAL.

The sentence

Carty was directing his disrespect at the Marines, it was at the police administration.

Should have read

Carty was not directing his disrespect at the Marines, it was at the police administration.

Its time they politicos from this city stop focusing on hurting each other and start focusing on helping the city.

Crash...Carty's actions were not against his police administration. Had Carty let the Marines conduct their exercises and then fired whomever in the police dept. was responsible, that would be one thing. He didn't do that...he took out the internal error on the Marines who were certainly not at fault for the snafu.

We're already the subject of ridicule over this...too late to put the cat back in the bag.

There was publicity about the exercises in the media, though not everyone saw/heard/read it.
