"At her swearing in ceremony, Byrd said that she is looking to getting things in order for the city."
Looks like she ALREADY did a great job, even without any order! That ONE remaining cop may well be suitable enough to handle those 700 some souls! Eternal shame on the other 5 , NO LOSS!
Thx Sam for putting another spotlight on the rampant racism!
(see the tweet :) Amen to that!

You know what and this is actually off topic but going by my son I'm glad I do the cleaning but I know what you mean though ;o)

"Eighty percent of success is showing up." I think the guy underestimated the power of showing up!

wouldn't it have been better for the aryans to keep their jobs, screw up at work and then blame the mayor? instead they resign and make the aryan movement look very bad. they're as stupid as the zionist'.

'Some Parma residents say they aren't worried about safety now that the police force has shrunk...." I don't think they hurt the town any by quitting, because who needs six police for 740 people."'

And saves money besides! What's not to like?

Reading the title I remembered the good old saying: "Small decisions are the women's job - big decisions are the men's job".

Small (women's) decisions like: how and when to clean the house, to educate, nurse and care for the children, how to make ends meet, when to renovate the house and supervising it, which insurance to take out, where to invest and how much, etc.

Big (men's) decisions like: when to launch a space ship to Saturn, with how much to finance and arm ISIS and who to blame for, when to start a WW III, etc.

So ... where's the problem exactly? Being mayor of a town is a perfect woman's job!!

Well Eleonora, the way I KNOW that saying looks like you forgot one small part there: one of the women's small decisions is WHAT the men's jobs wil be!

Angelika R (143)

Actually it goes: women are to decide what's a small and what's a big job!

But according to conservative justices on the SCOTUS, racism is no longer a problem. So, obviously, this never happened.

Well that was fast! Women can "clean house" and work in powerful positions! They made her first task easy - eliminating corruption!

hmmmmmm.... I'd like to have more of the back story on that one. The clerk and waste water treatment person seem to have resigned, also. Not getting it... I live in a small-ish town with a black mayor, and a white majority. I've heard no complaints from anyone.
The new mayor is from the town, has worked as a clerk there. The former mayor was in that position for more than three decades... perhaps people just wanted a change, but what DON'T we know?

I should have been more specific. The new mayor of PARMA is from the town and worked as a clerk there. Is it racism, is it that she wants to "clean house" of odd or questionable goings-on, does most of the town staff think she's incompetent, is it personal (as opposed to race), or what is it?

Chances are that the five cops, and the other three officials, who ran for the hills when Tyrus Byrd was elected as mayor for "safety reasons" were both racist and sexist and knew that now the reign of Randall Ramsey had come to an end, all would be exposed. I hope Ms. Byrd will look carefully into the matter and makes sure the town hall is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to avoid any nastiness rearing its ugly head again in Parma. And if she's the woman her supporters believe her to be, you can be sure she'll do a proper cleanup.

Many good comments! But it is true woman are so much better at getting done what needs to get done then men are, especially ethical stuff! Woman are firmer in character when it comes to important things! But all those resigning was a bonus, this new Mayor does not have to deal with as they were corrupt obviously! All the best to this new Mayor! Thanks Sam for posting!

This may not be just racism - it may be racism AND sexism. Oh, wait, it may not be just racism and sexism, it may be racism, sexism, AND corruption. Bwahahahaha! In any case, it looks to me (and I see I am not alone) as though she's already done a great job of cleaning house just by getting elected.

It reminds me of the old joke about the two KKK who made a pact what whichever dies first would come tell the other what the afterlife was like. So, after one died, the sťance was duly held. And you can make this joke as long and detailed as you want by telling Bubba all kinds of details, but I will just skip to the punch line, which is - "But there's just one problem. It's God. She's black."

These resignations will bite those racist, sexist eff-tards in their ay-ess-esses in the long run. Who needs 'em? Let us hope that more progressive and open-minded folks will take their places. Actually, that's the only sort of people who will fill those openings now.

Good, glad they left, made her job easier. As they say, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Bye bye bye. I'd say good for the people of the community.....seems like they did some house cleaning too.

I just love Joanne's KKK joke ... :-).

To sum up the good comments here - she just did what we women are "supposed" to do by nature: clean-up the house!

I doubt anyone will miss them. This mayor was fairly elected so she'll have plenty of support from others.

When interviewed on TV, one of the police officers said, 'It has nothing to do with race. If it had anything to do with race, I'd done never went to work in the town.' And the mayor denies saying anything about cleaning house.
