Police, fire issues are muted in campaign | The San Diego Union-Tribune

This article from the San Diego Union Tribune illustrates a disturbing aspect of the mayoral campaign. Public safety is getting little or no attention by the leading mayoral candidates. As evidence comes to light that the San Diego Police Department might be manipulating crime statistics, the City Council and mayoral candidates are ignoring this important issue.

Although San Diego is facing important issues such as the pension crisis and the Mt. Soledad Cross issue, there is more than just these two issues facing the person who will be elected San Diego's next mayor. The people of San Diego should call upon the mayoral candidates to address all of the tough questions, not just the popular questions.
