Police Chief Chris Snyder, appointed to the position under the previous administration after his predecessor was asked to resign, said his officers, like those anywhere, can make mistakes, "but when they do, they'll be held accountable."

Really, Chief? Accountable? Remember this from the Elkhart Police beating? Thayer is STILL an Assistant Police Chief. The cancer is not gone.:
