APD leadership scores poo...

... reads the ironically truncated Journal headline on my list of open tabs.

It actually reads in full; APD leadership scores poorly in survey.

The article, link, goes on to point out that the survey itself, is statistically meaningless.  Begging at least a couple of questions;

  1. Why was even one penny spent on a survey that lacked validity in its very design; you can let people fill out as many surveys as they want to, and expect valid survey results.
  2. Why isn't a real survey being done? - one that can be expected to produce valid data.
As to the first, because the person or people who ordered it up, were incompetent, corrupt, or both.

As to the second, the only reason to not tell the truth is to avoid the consequences of the truth becoming known.

APD Chief Gordon Eden
Who in the Albuquerque Police Department, benefits the most from the truth not becoming known, the leadership who ordered up the survey, or the rank and file who never held it in their hands?

Time for a vote of (no) confidence?
