One of the centers of police action last night was Washington St. and Haydn St. which the police, on their radios, kept referring to as Hay-den rather than Hi-den. I guess it's too much to ask for more of that kind of culture in the police reform bill.

Actually if you're from here its hay-den; if you just like classical its hi-den.

I'd say they are doing a pretty good job.

Or are you saying that people who don't do a good job pronouncing things should be fired?

based on the common term "police culture" and the term culture as applied to the arts. It was not meant as a commentary on the way they do their jobs.

That said, I am in favor of additional oversight, mandatory body-camera usage, a requirement for certification, additional training, and more scrutiny of how they earn their pay and overtime.

So the original Beech St. projects were torn down because they were an eyesore and crime-ridden. And were replaced by these nice townhouse units. Brand new. And there is still crime. You can take the people out of the projects, but you can't take the projects out of the people....
