Marc says hiring an outside expert means you can’t do the job yourself. He also points out the lead investigator Ramsey, oversaw departments in multiple cities with astronomical crime rates. His co-review Oates worked under the Obama administration. Equally as disturbing, Marc notes the ‘merger-like' mentality of hiring the same outside source to conduct the reviews.
