A Fantino Fan?

I was reading a rant from my friend Reay about how it is a waste of time for the people to voice their opinion about what to look for in a new Police Chief.

While I can see Reay’s point about silly surface qualities, I think it is important for people to voice their opinion. After all, a Chief of Police is in charge of a body of workers who are supposed to look after the people.

I think a Chief of Police should be imbued with trace amounts of charisma (ok, perhaps more than a trace amount) and speaking skill. Someone who could think on their feet in a stressful press conference, presenting the facts in such a way as to control any panic, or to foster hope.

Maybe I’m just an idealist, but I think it’s important to have leadership ability as well as experience.
