What I do not understand about Ted, is that he had a run there, for quite some time where he was all about firing anybody and everybody.
I know he wanted the indiscriminate termination and pursuit of criminal charges against Roger Smith while being clueless about the real story behind that. He assumed a group of employees were criminally complicit and should suffer serious penalties which was the furthest thing from the truth.
He assumes that Warren Pike was scapegoated and all that clearly transpired was blown out of proportions for spurious reasons while not entertaining the thought that Betty Barnhart may have been scapegoated herself.
I am not sure if he realizes the special privileges and favoritism that Warren was the recipient of for years by the mayor and Ken Parker and his ability to skirt controls like the incident that he was suspended for in the past that was sighted on this web sight.
Ted has shown a lapse of reasoning and critical thinking in this instance and has demonstrated how discriminating his consternation or favor runs relative to presuppositions that he has with limited knowledge and insight into the true facts.
He seams to pronounce anathemas against some and declare the year of jubilee for others with the pomp befitting of a medieval king or emperor. . Ironically, the only other person that I know in the city that makes such hard and fast dogmatic pronouncements without all the facts, and feels as though he can do it with impunity is the mayor.
All I can say is Allen Green and Ted Noftall are two peas in a pod!
