    This is another example of a serious crime taking place in the campus neighborhood. Previously you had a murder and a knife attack. Given this uptick in serious crime in the campus neighborhood I am wondering if it was such a good idea to let Chief Feeny go. President Hutchinson, of course, fired Feeny over the summer, replacing him with a friend from her previous job at CSU Channel Islands. Feeny in his prior job had worked at a big city PD – San Francisco as I recall -so he had a lot of experience dealing with serious crime, such as shootings, knife attacks, and muggings. With this more serious crime taking place in the campus neighborhood as of late I think you can make a case the firing of Feeny may have been a mistake. Right now you have a temp filling Feeny’s job, a guy who previously worked at Channell Islands, a college with little or no crime Was it a mistake to fire Feeny? Why was Feeny fired? I never read anywhere the reason for Feeny’s firing. As a reader of the Orion I am interested in the whole Feeny firing controversy, but so far the Orion has completely ignored by complaints about the lack of coverage of why Chief Feeny got fired. The story is even more important now that you have this crime wave going on in the campus neighborhood, of course, but still no coverage, at all. That’s pretty shameful.
