Pearson's Bully Tactics DID NOT work!
The City FIRED him yesterday with a vote of 4-1 after a 2 hour long city council discussion over Pearson.
I first heard about Pearson getting fired because another east Texas Conservative blog, Not on the Payroll, quickly posted up that Pearson had been fired.
Here are some of the things discussed in that meeting, according to the Beaumont Enterprise:
Pearson was questioned about different areas including hours he has put in during his tenure as police chief.
questioned by Johnson, Pearson said he works from "8:30 to 4:45 every
day." But Johnson pointed to figures that showed that Pearson was out a
number of days during the months of February through June.
Johnson also questioned the time that Capt. Curtis Frame puts in the office as well.
centered his questions on if certain police procedures were followed
during investigations and how come Pearson is not called out to major
"In the past, when we had a major crime, you would
always see Chief (Todd) Hunter at the scene," Lout said. "Where are you
at these scenes?"
