During Mills three and half years tenure as Eureka Police Chief, we found ourselves the lead critical voice for his actions and public statements. We had less concern about is announced policy goals, all though we weren’t always on board.

Here are some prime examples of our coverage of Mills at the EPD:

APPARENTLY, AT MILL’S EPD THEY’RE “KILLING TO BE PROMOTED”
McClain shooter, Stephen Linfoot, is rewarded by Mills Seven months ago, when the innocent young Tommy McClain was gunned down in his own front yard, the media, for the most part, gave EPD and Chief Mills a pass. Regular citizens were left horrified and bewildered. We at the Examiner began asking lots of questions. We […]

ANDY MILLS WANTS EUREKA TO FORGET ALL ABOUT THE 18TH ST GANG

A look at the Eureka Police website shows that EPD has only 2 official press releases this year; “Operation Safe Tweets” and “Neighborhood Input Meetings”.

POLICE CHIEF ANDY “HOLLYWOOD” MILLS HAS TRAINED THE MEDIA SO WELL THEY’RE SPININ’ HIS STORIES FOR HIM
In fact, his spin control has been so effective the local media is just making up “fact’s” to support the out of control shooting spree by EPD in Downtown Eureka. Over New Years, this caught our attention; KRCR ch 7 redding, their Eureka affiliate Northcoast News 23, featured this as one of its top […]

ARE YOU GOING TO LET POLICE CHIEF MILLS BLOW THIS RIGHT BY YOU?
