I'll be the first to make a supportive,positive comment to this officer. I hope it's a chain reaction instead of some pissing and moaning about how unfair something is."Congratulations on your new position officer Hara. Your family and children are proud and so are we.

I think Chief Bratton makes too much of an issue regarding race, gender, or ethnicity in announcing his promotions. In his press releases he should focus on the accomplishments, competancy, and qualifacations of the people he promotes. Instead he uses these promotions as political grandstanding to further his case of diversifacation. The chief does a diservice to the people he promotes by spending all his energy reminding people that Deputiy Chief Hara is Asian, instead of mentioning how qualified and deserving that he is of the promotion. I personally don't know this man, and certianlly cannot speak to his qualifacations, but if I was promoted at my job and the main theme of the promotion when announced was my race, I wouldn't feel comfortable. I wish the chief would stop politiking on every announcement, promotion , or other action he takes. This annoucment should be about Deputy Chief Hara and his accomplishments, not about how Bratton is a great guy because he is diversifing the department's upper management. It takes away from the moment, that should be Hara's not Bratton's.

I wish his new appointee best wishes in his new assignment.
