Sports Illustrated says of NFL hiring of Lanier "a highly-respected figure in law enforcement who just happened to be a woman".
There is a back-story here. Lanier was a _horrible_ affirmative action police chief in DC. The city was in all out Ferguson Effect mode. Cop morale was at rock bottom, because they knew that when the chips were down she would support the criminals. Cops would hear shots fired outside their precinct window and would sit and wait to give the perps time to get out of harms way. In one famous incident filmed on video a convenience store clerk called the local precinct for help while thugs beat him up and started trashing the store--for forty five minutes! The police station was five minutes away, and the cops intentionally waited a full hour before showing up...
Lanier is a NFL virtue signaling affirmative action joke who could barely find a ladies room in the building. (Maybe that _was_ part of the problem in this case, but the Pats should not have been stupid enough to rely on her--they had to know her _real_ story.)
