Baton Rouge Chief Refuses To Fire Officer.

At long last.  A police chief with a set of balls who stands up for his officer(s).

Baton Rouge mayor, sharon broome, D-law..what law, recently directed Chief Carl Dabadie to fire the officer who shot and killed alton sterlings last July.baton rouge

The hue and cry went up.  Major disturbances and riots followed.  A weak minded soul that bought into all the fiery rhetoric ambushed and killed three police officers and wounded three others in Baton Rouge.

Last year was a tough time for our nations police officers.

The officer who shot sterling was investigated by the DOJ.  No charges were filed and you know they really wanted to hang something on this guy.  The shooting was within the law and department policy.

Responding to the request/demand from the mayor the Chief refused.  Saying the matter was still under investigation by the LA attorney general.  Chances are that no charges would be filed.  Remember Baltimore and Tulsa.

Once again, all Mr. Sterlings had to do was comply.  That doesn’t seem too outlandish does it?

Great job Chief.  Stick to your guns and may god bless the men and women of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

  1. Ken…Totally agree with the Chief’s decision, but as an aside, hows cum the smaller the police department, the more stars the Chief has on his collar…and why do some Sheriff’s have more stuff hanging on their shirt than Audie Murphy if full military attire?

    Finally, what is the current insignia for the rank of “Commissioner” is he/she a full Colonel, the traditional bird or has the job been given the bird?

    “Confused old person.”

      Hey Bill:

      Don’t know why i haven’t responded to you’re comment…Good ??’s I remember some of the chiefs in St. Louis County court testifying at a preliminary hearing.
      One guy from Hillsdale(?) I think, had more stars than Westmoreland. Additionally he was a fat slob. Commissioner’s call each other COL. I think it’s largely a ceremonial position bestowed upon those with deep pockets at election time. Hope all is well with you and Mr. Dunn. Great meeting with you guys. Let’s do that again..and sooner rather than later.
