Mesa police unions took their attacks on Chief Ramon Batista to the people.

On Friday, they held a public meeting where they continued to outline why they took a no-confidence vote against the chief last month, but the city has virtually ignored that vote.

Bree Burkitt, public safety reporter for The Arizona Republic, attended the meeting to hear all of the concerns.

Burkitt joined The Show to explain that Mesa citizens don't necessarily agree with the unions.
