P.S. If you're wondering why this is a tad disjointed and abrupt, it was first published as a series of tweets. Ryan McGreal was kind enough to publish it here as well.

I tweeted all this before today's new and improved video was released.

Also, to be clear, this isn't about Coleman and Ferguson for me anymore. I don't think we'll see any change in the status quo of that particular case. However, I don't know anyone who can look at how this was handled and say that the public or Council was well served by the policies in place or the decisions made. It really is time to admit that there has been a series of serious failures on the City's part.

Also, While I have been directing these questions at Mayor Eisenberger, I am fully aware most of these decisions were made without his influence since he was not even the Mayor during the original incident. However, I expect more of him because of that added freedom. He had an opportunity to step in with a fresh impetus to clean things up. So far I only see him acting as an advocate for the status quo.

In response to my questions he did offer to chat with me via telephone, which is appreciated, but I am a single member of the general public, a relative nobody who doesn't deserve the Mayor's attention any more than anyone else.

What I want is a broader discussion, led by media and the greater public, about the problems that occurred and what to do to fix them. City Hall is broken, here's a perfect example of how broken it is. So let's fix it.
