Given Mr. Rays long disturbing track record, how does this lack of management not require any accountability, especially as president of the FOP. Bet he wishes he could sleep all day at the High School with Bias....


That is because he never reached out to people with experience. He wanted people that would rubber stamp things for Snider. Instead of people that would stand up and do the right thing
