One Ferguson Police Officer Fired, Two Placed On Leave
[su_right_ad]This comes after the revelation of racist emails.
Ferguson Mayor James Knowles [pictured] said Wednesday that one police official had been fired and two others were on administrative leave over racist emails that were cited in the Justice Department’s scathing new report on the city’s police department.
The emails, one of which compared President Barack Obama to a chimpanzee, were released by the Justice Department in a report that found patterns of racism by law enforcement officials in the St. Louis suburb. It was one of two reports that followed the August shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.
“This type of behavior will not be tolerated in the Ferguson Police Department,” Knowles said in an evening news conference, without taking questions from reporters.

From what I’ve heard so far, there appear to have been more than 3 involved, so it is hoped that this is just the beginning of a house-cleaning.
I’m not clear on these emails, though.
Were they sent from the po-lice station or on department email accounts?
Were they private accounts and the emails sent by off-duty fuzz?

So is the fired one the Police Chief? I also heard he hired two whole African American court reporters, that is where he should be starting, the court reporters. If it wasn’t for the other court reporters, none of this would of occurred……/s

So the justice dept. has determined the police force is full of racists.
Except for Darren Wilson?

““This type of behavior will not be tolerated in the Ferguson Police Department,” Knowles said in an evening news conference, without taking questions from reporters.”
kind of like under a Ford administration there will be no Soviet domination of eastern Europe?

No comment on why the brown shooting didn’t go to court and heard by a jury. just the same old diner we had to eat the last time this clown was in front of a mic.
