Chief McManus: Community activists to decide on medals

Chief McManus has announced that while it's too late to strip Sgt. May of his Medal of Valor, future medal awards for his officers will be decided by Spike Moss, Ron Edwards, the Police Community Relations Council, and a democratic vote of trustys of the downtown jail.

The criteria for awarding medals will also be revised, with a shift in emphasis from "protecting and serving the public" to those who are successful in "appeasing the unappeasable".

No patrol officers would return calls for comment.
