Turkey's deputy police chief has been fired--the most senior commander yet. The officer was targeted in a purge of a police force heavily influenced by a cleric who is accused by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan of plotting to seize the levers of state power. Erdogan's AK Party, meanwhile, submitted plans to parliament to allow government to have more say over the naming of prosecutors and judges. Erdogan argues that the judiciary and the police are in the sway of the "Hizmet" (or "Service") movement of cleric Fethullah Gulen, which contrived the graft investigation that is now shaking his administration.
