@neufeld_mark Calgary Police Association president John Orr says it was a cowardly act that claimed Sgt. Harnett's life.
@neufeld_mark Chief Neufeld says they don't believe it is possible the driver didn't know they had hit Sgt. Harnett. As a supervisor he would have been working alone but other officers were nearby.
@neufeld_mark Chief Neufeld says investigators got additional authorization to release the name of the 17-yr-old suspect. Names of youth are normally not released relating to crime.
@neufeld_mark Chief Neufeld says, "I'm pissed off, it's totally senseless," on the death of Sgt. Harnett.
@neufeld_mark Chief Neufeld says Sgt. Harnett was "Just an amazing fellow," says they worked a shift together in the past, calls him a consummate police officer.
@neufeld_mark Chief Neufeld says Harnett was a highly decorated member of the armed forces, and was a highly decorated police officer. Earned two chief's awards for saving lives.
@neufeld_mark The traffic stop was initiated because the licence plate on the vehicle didn't match.

Harvard's discriminatory policies are becoming increasingly well known, across the political spectrum (see, e.g., the recent lawsuit on discrimination against East Asian applications.)

It's refreshing to hear a senior administrator admits to personally opposing policies that attempt to remedy these basic flaws. These are flaws that harm his institution's ability to do cutting-edge research and to serve the public.

Harvard is being eclipsed by institutions that have different ideas about how to run a 21st Century institution. Stanford, for one; the UC system; the "public Ivys".
