Pension hopping

The only reasons someone in Harrison's position and at his age would leave his hometown and multi-decade career behind in order to start fresh in a new city 1100 miles away would be 1) He's been forced out in some sort of scandal or disgrace or 2) He wants to use the 3 to 5 years before retirement as an opportunity to pick up another pension. Well he's not being forces out so it's probably number 2, right?

Don't bother asking him, either way. We already know he can't be taken at his word.
WBAL-TV in Baltimore says Mayor Catherine Pugh announced her selection for police commissioner Tuesday (Jan. 8) based on recommendations from a search panel. Harrison has said he didn’t apply for the job and initially turned it down.

Harrison in December acknowledged he spoke with the Baltimore search panel in October during a police chiefs' conference in Orlando. He arose as the panel’s top pick, according to the Baltimore Sun. However, he told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune last month that he was staying in New Orleans.
Anyway so, this will be fun. LaToya gets to pick a new Police Chief now.  I wonder what Warren Riley is up to....
