When Deputy City Manager Robert Cheshire publicly posed questions to each of the three finalists he is considering for the job of Statesboro chief of police, one question stood out as particularly timely in light of national events. At first, finalists Herbert Blake, Saundra Rhodes and Charles Sikes were sequestered in another room of Sea Island Bank so they couldn't hear one another's answers. They came out one by one to answer Cheshire's questions as a crowd approaching 150 people gathered in the lobby to meet them.
