Joseph Yahner is leading the Phoenix Police Department once again.
Well, it seems that President Obama and his attorney general are not the only liberals eager to throw white law enforcement officers “under the bus.” Yup, one of our very own recently came out publicly citing Arizona white law enforcement officers’ high black-American arrest statistics. Who should local law enforcement be arresting in our local inner-cities; Eskimos, Berber tribesmen, or Polynesians?
As the sun set Tuesday evening, Mesa unveiled a bold new look for the Fiesta District. Gigantic entry monuments at the intersection of Southern Avenue and Alma School Road were lit up for the first time, demarcating the entrance to an area once famous for its retail and now a prime target in the city’s campaign for economic rejuvenation.

Valley Metro and Tempe officials reassured residents concerned about the costs and consequences of the city’s planned streetcar system at an occasionally contentious question-and-answer meeting on Monday, Dec. 1, at the Tempe Transportation Center, saying the project would be an economic boon and sometimes defending it to a few sharply skeptical questioners.

PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Attorney for Arizona has found no evidence that Arizona's pension fund for public safety workers committed criminal misconduct when it valued some real estate properties in its $6.2 billion portfolio, pension officials announced Monday.
The board chairman for the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System, Brian Tobin, said the decision by the US Attorney for Arizona closes the books on the yearlong investigation of the pension fund.
The FBI and U.S. attorney's office launched the probe last year into whether real estate values were inflated to boost performance bonuses awarded to some senior investment managers. The allegations were brought to the attention of prosecutors by former pension system employees.
"This was and is a serious allegation," Tobin said. "It's not true and it never was true."
Tobin said the investigation, and two others done by its independent auditing firm and the Arizona Auditor General that also cleared the pension fund, are examples of the system's checks and balances working correctly.
Board lawyer James Belanger said the Justice Department is completing a review of several people he would not identify. But he said he expects they'll be cleared as well.
The pension plan released a letter from the U.S. attorney to Belanger confirming the decision. Cosme Lopez, spokesman for U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo, confirmed the contents of the letter but could not comment on any additional reviews.
The pension plan for public safety employees is facing a massive shortfall between its assets and what it expects to owe police and firefighters across the state when they retire. The latest projection as of June 30 shows $12.2 billion in liabilities compared to just $6.2 billion in assets.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — A paramedic has been charged with theft after being accused of pocketing a patient's Rolex watch during an ambulance ride to a hospital, authorities said Friday.
Jason Edward Alexander, a Rural/Metro ambulance employee, was arrested after the victim's son saw the watch on eBay and notified authorities.
The man died on Oct. 8 after Alexander helped transport him to the hospital in Mesa on Sept. 21. The family couldn't find his watch.
Alexander acknowledged taking the watch because he owed money to his parents, Mesa police spokesman Esteban Flores said.
After trying to sell it on eBay, Alexander sold it for $1,400 to a friend who did not know it had been stolen, police said.
The friend was working with authorities to return the watch to the family.
Alexander faces one count each of theft and trafficking in stolen property. He is due in court Wednesday. It was unclear if he has an attorney.
John Karolzak, a Rural/Metro spokesman, said Alexander is on unpaid administrative leave. He was hired about a year ago after undergoing a background check, Karolzak said, adding that the company had no plans to review any of its operations.
"We consider this incident an anomaly and acted definitively upon notification," he said.
