    Is the guy a complete *********, thinking he was going to turn the department upside down in two years? I get the feeling that may be what the situation is ( or was ).

    I believe, as a whole, the department knows that things need to change-just not as fast as an outsider wanted it to.
    I get the feeling that's what happened too. The guy came in and tried to implement some massive changes and when guys started complaining the chief let him sink. But if that's the case, is it a bad thing? This department just suffered a massive loss, a loss the investigation showed was largely due to, among other things, poor training. It sounds like the place definitely needed to be turned upside down...and fast. Being an outsider should have nothing to do with it, but I certainly recognize that's often not the case.

    It's a tough situation. Imagine the pressure of coming in on the heels of a 9-LODD incident and being told to revamp the training program. You know you'll meet resistance; do you risk a backlash and proceed as you know you should, or do you try to upgrade things more gradually and catch heat for moving too slowly?

    There's probably plenty of blame for both sides. Everybody in the situation just needs to remember how important it is to avoid another incident like the Sofa Super Store and do their best to improve things.
