Executive Senior Leaders Should Not Lie (Update)

By | April 19, 2014

[April 20, 2014] The statement that senior leaders should not lie is rather clear … and the results of lying can be devastating to a country or community. The latest caught “fudging the numbers” is the Chicago Police Department. An investigation was conducted by Chicago Magazine and the results of Chicago’s drop in crime are an illusion because the police have been reclassifying murders and violent offenses into other categories1. Lying by misleading, by commission, or omission is still lying. The Chicago mayor and its Police Commissioner need to address this accusation quickly. However, it appears they were caught with their pants down.
