Interim Indianapolis Chief Rick Hite and Doni Glover, Publisher of www.bmorenews.com
(BALTIMORE - October 22, 2012) - Guess who came to the Memorial Service for former State Senator Clarence Mitchell, III? Rick Hite, our good buddy formerly of the Baltimore City Police Department.
Currently, he is the Interim Indianapolis Police Chief, and we are so very proud of him. Indianapolis has one of America's best crime fighters.
He's a cop's cop, but he alsp knows the community perspective very well. I know because I made sure he did. As long as he would listen, I'd tell him. And, truth be told, he became one of the dearest people in my life - as he is to a whole lot of other people.
What you see is what you get. He's going to do what is best for the city. And you can bet on it.
Mind you, we often disagreed. However, it was mostly civil. He is willing to hear you out, and he is willing to offer suggestions. And that, my friends, is the art of compromise. And he is very good at it.
Congrats, Chief Rick! It's a shame Baltimore lost you. We'd gladly take you back. I know if I were mayor, there would be no question!
