"The past few hours have been challenging for the city. Any death under these circumstances is tragic. While no one deserves to be a victim, initial reports indicate these were not random acts of violence. The victims knew their assailants. I have complete faith in the men and women of IMPD and know they will work diligently to identify all suspects and bring them to justice."Ballard then hopped the last plane to Phoenix, Arizona where he is attending yet another out-of-state junket. His latest excuse for getting out of town is for an advisory board meeting for the U.S. Conference of Mayors. So much for public safety being job one, Greg. Enjoy your trip to Phoenix.
