Alabama town abolishes police department after officer’s slavery text surfaces
A police department in Alabama is no more.
The move comes after an officer allegedly sent a racist text. Per the report the text read allegedly texted, “What do y’all call a pregnant slave? … BOGO Buy one, get one free.”
That lead to the town’s city council voting to close down the police department and fire the police chief and assistant chief.
The small town with about 2,000 people will not be without law enforcement as the county’s sheriff office will step in to help out in the meantime.
Text messages can ruin relationships, and I guess police departments too.
