  [Culture] No progress announced on Savannah police officer shot twice with own gun
Date : 09/01/2011     
From the Savannah Channel Writers

Back in early June Savannah Police officer Michael Eric Broome was shot twice with his own gun. Chief Willie Lovett said that the officer never lost control of his weapon. Since the shooting no news on the case has been released by the city or police.

Only a month following the shooting Lovett said that as long as folks are not involved with drugs they have nothing to worry over. The Savannah Channel is certainly concerned about safety even though we are not involved with drugs.

With the rise in violent and property crimes in the area and the lack of apparent leadership at police HQ, it seems that the bet that long time city cop and now chief Willie Lovett was the best choice as top cop was a bad bet. Despite these disturbing trends city alderman and mayoral candidate Jeff Felser still has confidence in Lovett.

Upon the announced departure of former police chief Michael Berkow, Felser immediately said that Lovett was entitled to the top job and should retire with a chief's pension even before a new search for top cop was agreed upon. At a recent Buy Local candidate forum Felser defended his pick for top cop. Felser's Facebook page carries the bold pronouncement "I support police chief Willie Lovett". A negative comment under the Felser's pronouncement questions his reasons for that support to which Felser has not answered.

It is the Savannah Channels opinion that if all officers were in the same physical condition of chief Lovett (morbidly obese by all appearances) more officers would be shot with their own guns.
