the protests against Gal Hirsch are why he should be Chief of Police

I have no comment on Gal Hirsch personally. I don't know much about him, other than the little I've read in the past couple of days... I do have a comment on his appointment as Chief of Police. My comment is not actually on his appointment, but on the appointment of somebody from outside the ranks of the police force.

Ever since Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan announced Gal Hirsch as his appointment for Chief of Police, people in the Israel Police have been criticizing the decision, calling for the appointment of someone from inside the police force and not appointing an outside, even from the ranks of the IDF.

The police force needs some serious reform. Nobody from within is going to do it. Those associated with the police who are speaking out against the appointment of Hirsch are doing so because they know that an insider will protect them, protect the force, as they perceive "protection" being from change, from exposure.

Right now the people of Israel need to be protected from the police. An outsider, hopefully Gal Hirsch, can change that. An insider almost definitely will not.
