APS senior administrator, APS chief of police

When APS senior administrator Michael Vigil was being arrested for aggravated drunk driving, he sought to escape accountability. He sought to contact a number of influential people, I suspect in the hope that they would use their influence to save him.

Why do you suppose, among candidates was the APS chief of police?

Why, when the media reported the story, was the name of the APS chief of police underreported?

Why is it that whenever APS fires a senior administrator, they have to give them a bunch of money? Might it have something to do with suppressing the truth about incompetence and corruption in APS?

How many APS administrators, who represented criminal and civil exposure for the District, no longer work for APS, but now have better jobs with APS vendors. I can think of two right off the top of my head.

I wonder if Vigil, who should not have been drinking and driving, was "set up" by Gil, and the cops downplayed it after the fact because he was the one who reported it?

If MV was making noises of quashing Lovato's wanton ways, perhaps GL did a pre-emptive strike by doing an old fashoned stakeout at MV's favorite watering hole, then makes an anonymous call to apd, and -presto- boss who wants to hold you accountable- GONE.

Or maybe MV was just caught driving drunk and tried to use whatever he could to get out of it, having seen what this type of thing had done to others' careers.

A fascinating theory. It would have made Vigil's request to the arresting officer that he be able to contact Lovato for help, ironic in the least.
