    2 years ago Comments: I support a police chief that actually protects us from "all" violence committed by anyone in or out of uniform. I used to think all of the bad CPD stories were a little exaggerated. Now I know from experience they are probably all true. Let him make Columbia better, by holding our officers accountable. You are trying to work on the violence issue in Columbia. You say you are concerned about the lack of trust in the community of CPD. You say citizens don't cooperate with CPD. There is a reason why. People don't trust them and are more and more taking action into their own hands in many of the violent cases in town recently. If you really want to help stop violence, and have people work more with CPD, then do not rehire Rob Saunders. He has recently assaulted people and the CPD wont do anything about it. When he hurts someone again, and he will, or kills someone, how much do you think that would cost the city?
