Down Goes Tucker! Down Goes Tucker!

The Trib reports that he just resigned at a press conference, and he took a few slaps at the City Council on his way out: “Quite frankly I’ve lost faith in the City Council. … They’ve given lip service to public safety in the city.” Tucker faced a vote of no-confidence from the City Council, owing to the countless scandals under his watch: phony search warrants, Chauncey Bailey, the cop union bribery scandal, you name it. It’s not too late to revoke his pension, is it?
