What Fresh Hell Is This?

Friday Morning Massacre?

Some of you may remember the "Thursday Morning Massacre." Should we be calling this the Friday Morning Massacre?

Via the Post-Gazette:
Mayor Ravenstahl is replacing five of seven Citizen Police Review Board members.

Mayoral spokeswoman Joanna Doven confirmed that the mayor is naming new members to the board, which is seeking documents from the Pittsburgh Police Bureau regarding the 2009 G-20 Summit. The group is in court this afternoon, seeking a contempt of court ruling against Chief Nate Harper.

Ms. Doven said that the sudden action had nothing to do with the board's actions regarding the G-20.

Uh-huh. Right.

She went on to add that "all the members' terms had expired."

But of course, Lil Mayor Luke has a pattern of letting members' terms expire so he can later remove them at will when they dare to go against his every wish.

And while Chris Potter has some doubts that Lil Mayor Luke can achieve his total destruction revamping of the Citizen Police Review Board, I have full faith that there are enough rubber stamps Pittsburgh City Councilors out there to make all Lukey's dreams come true!
