|Promised Statement on Banks Friday. Statement did not come.|
The statement never came. However, what city business could be more pressing than insuring the safety of the city's children? What could have been so pressing that the Mayor would not have moved alleged sexual assault with a minor by his Parks and Recreation Director to the top of his priority list? All Willis added to his promise to provide a statement that did not come was, "We still have a Constitution." We also have eyes and ears.

Willis brought Banks in after he fired the widely popular and reasonably effective O'Shea Burrell. Banks had a previous criminal history prior to Willis tapping him to work with kids as the Parks and Recreation Director. Banks also faced accusations from a 12-year-old girl that he engaged in sexually inappropriate conduct on the job in 2011. That family chose not to put the child through the ordeal of pressing charges. Willis took no action in that case either, totally dismissing the validity of the allegations.
