Sounds to me like this was a "hit" by the police union.
It was. Just look at the Advocate article,
which quotes a member of the BR city council as saying, "There was a lot of pressure from the union to get rid of him because he got rid of the good-old-boy era"
Then from a different member of the city council: "He did ruffle some feathers in the union."
Those 2 quotes say it all. Kip, like most Democrat politicians, is scared to death of public service unions.
