Why is the Phoenix wood products company Phoenix wood product company having a hard time attracting the right people to buy their products?
article The Phoenix woodworking company that is in the midst of an all-out PR war with competitors is trying to sell its products at a loss, according to a new report.
The company, Phoenix Wood Products, was acquired by the company of a former Phoenix Police Department (PPD) officer.
The PPD’s Phoenix Police Chief, Gary McBride, resigned in November, after the Phoenix City Council passed a resolution stating that the city’s PPD has been too soft on crime.
The city council voted to investigate Phoenix’s police department’s policies.
The council’s investigation found that the PPD had a policy that allowed officers to use deadly force against individuals who were acting in the line of duty.
In other words, PPD policy allowed for officers to kill people who were not committing a crime.
This policy led to the deaths of Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and many other people.
A few months later, Phoenix’s former police chief, retired Lieutenant Gary McBrady, resigned from the Phoenix Police department, and the Phoenix city council passed a new resolution stating the P.D. should have a zero-tolerance policy against police brutality.
McBradys resignation came as a result of a lawsuit brought by the Black Lives Matter Phoenix chapter against the Phoenix police department.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Mayor Julie Quinn announced that the Phoenix Department of Public Safety would create a new training program that will include “a diversity of police officers from all walks of life” to combat racial bias.
McBradies resignation is not the only time the PDE has been criticized for a policy of excessive force.
In February, Phoenix Public Schools (PSP) announced it was removing a number of PPD officers, including McBradian, for violating school policy that requires officers to “act within the law and respect the rights of the person they are sworn to protect.”
PPD Chief Ron Hickman responded by saying that the officers were “unable to be accountable” for their actions.PPD Chief Gary McQuade resigned after a lawsuit was filed against him, claiming that the department failed to investigate serious allegations against him and his brother-in-law, and that he was retaliated against for doing his job.
In July, the court found that McQuades claims were false and that the case against him was without merit.
The PPD also fired another PPD officer who resigned in January.
Predictably, the city council’s report on the Phoenix PPD was an instant hit with the media.
In an interview with the Arizona Republic, McBride said that the report is meant to give people an accurate picture of what happened.
McBride did not address why he was leaving Phoenix, nor did he answer questions about why he chose to leave.
The news outlet also did not specify the reason for the PADP’s decision to cut ties with McBrads brother- in-law.
McBride did acknowledge that he is no longer in the PD.
However, he said that he will be returning to Phoenix in the coming months, with an assistant chief.
McQuad is currently serving as the chief of police for Phoenix’s city of Tucson, but is scheduled to retire in June 2019.
The Arizona Republic reported that McBride plans to retire with the assistance of an outside law firm.
