Morning Poll: Should Phoenix "Public Safety Manager" (Police Chief) Jack Harris be Permanently Reassigned?

In response to allegations that his department inflated border-related kidnapping statistics to secure federal grants, Phoenix Public Safety Manager (a.k.a. double-dipping police chief) Jack Harris on Wednesday said the following:

"Anyone that wants these stars can come and get them. But I've got news for you -- I'm not giving them to you. You're going to have to take them."

Harris still has his stars, but he's been neutered -- Phoenix City Manager David Cavazos announced yesterday that, as a panel of experts review the police department's kidnapping stats and record-keeping processes, Harris has been stripped of many of his duties overseeing the police department.

Depending on what the review turns up, Harris could permanently be reassigned.

We want to know what you think: should Harris be permanently stripped of his duties overseeing the Phoenix PD?
