It’s about time. We’re sick and tired of cop after cop, especially white cops, getting away with murder and just walking away.
Well times they are a changing. This week a cop got fired and it didn’t even take a dead, unarmed, black felon or gangster to make it happen. There wasn’t even a demonstration and Al Sharpton probably didn’t even hear about it until now, since we know he follows The Curmudgeon faithfully.
What, you ask, could have brought about this cultural revolution?
Thank you for asking. Here ya go.
That would be Sgt. Shannon Dildine formerly of the North Charleston PD. It’s a selfie he posted on Facebook.
Where would we be without Facebook? This surely rates as a Stupid Criminals on Facebook post.
Police Chief Eddie Driggers issues a termination letter to the officer, Sgt. Shannon Dildine, saying the photo undermines the officer’s “ability to improve trust and instill confidence when working with our citizens.”
“Your posting in this manner led to you being publicly identified as a North Charleston Police officer and associated both you and the Department with an image that symbolizes hate and oppression to a significant portion of the citizens we are sworn to serve,” Driggers wrote.
Sgt. Dildine, we hope you find a great lawyer.
We wish you the best.
