lets start it off here, ftlicious or wahtever his name is for fsp colonel, thought?
Great decision. @Ftlicious is a great dude and has run a successful department before.
personally definitely think someone from the outside should’ve been nominated, I’ve returned to FS in mid 2020 and I still can’t name half of FSP HICOM
If Bear was forced out of a nomination for DOT Secretary on the point that he wasn’t in DOT at the time, ftlicious should have the same controversy. A person not within the department in question, being given full power over said department, with experience in a department built upon secrecy isn’t a good look, especially when one of the big issues with FSP was not being open.
For as much as he’s a good person outside of this, it just highlights this incredibly messed up view of nominations, where some are nominated on merit, time in the relevant department, and past experiences. It boggles the mind when there were a solid few good candidates from FSP Gold Command to take the position, christ some Bronze Command members could make good candidates for Colonel, yet a member from DHS is instead being nominated for this position who is known to want to go for High ranks (see this).
can agree I feel someone who was in FSP at LEAST for sometime should’ve been nominated, but we’ll see how it plays out
The difference is DOT has command members who are competent to take over the job. We don’t know anyone in FSP who can take that responsibility.
how about we just abolish FSP and make every LEO either join SCSO, DHS, Or FBI
BlockeyGecko, Chasep01, ThinBlueCoren, Twit_Mercado, K_yleTB, DevBlue. All possible and suitable candidates, where some just need to be a touch more active.
i mean it also is just throwing someone who has NO IDEA how the department functions into the flames, im more curious to see how their HICOM reacts if he does pass
wasn’t kyle freeranked to lieutenant from not even being in the department? Now you want him to be colonel?
at least he has FSP experience NOW
Alex should be nominated
I didn’t know any of these people until you said their names. Additionally, the audit found problems with the current command and administration.
FSP needs a new face to help re-evaluate and improve their processes.
The audit didn’t include anything. It was poorly written and poorly executed. FDOA and ASU spent a full week in talks, and nothing of it appeared in the audit, nothing was noted with external relations, and no comments relating to what people they interviewed had even said.
If we’re going to go off this audit, FSP should then be wholly reformed, from the bloody ground up. It gave no actual meat, nor any real solutions. It made the blame fall squarely on Code because it was the cop out move. I’ve said this before, they did it to make it look like action had happened, even when it really hadn’t.
kyles a former lieutenant colonel
its a cabinet dude, that’s how a cabinet works. cabinet secretaries/ministers irl aren’t always subject matter experts, idk why firestone made them so. irl when a new administration comes into power, they clear out the entire cabinet
fsp is in a point where it has issues so indemic it can’t be solved internally. a fresh mind from someone outside the department, especially from a department with an outstanding track record, is what it needs.
although, like with bear’s dot confirmation, seemingly some senators don’t know what their job of conformation is.
Firstly I’d like to start off by saying this is nothing like the DOT Secretary nomination. There were no doubts that the current DOT High Command/Administration was competent enough to take the position. In FSP’s case there were multiple concerns raised that the current High Command/Administration would not be up to the task. (https://i.imgur.com/1OTpqFQ.png) To respond to Tostee, the blame does fall squarely on Code no matter the result of the audit due to the fact that it’s his department he chooses how it’s run and who assists him in running it. If there are issues within his department and nothing was done about it to the point where an audit was even needed then there is obviously an issue with the command that is already within the department.
The whole point of a cabinet is to have subject matter experts…
