On the ropes!

Police departments across the country are finding themselves besieged since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis P.D. custody.

Officers have endured unrelenting harassment and bodily harm throughout this summer of unrest with no meaningful support from the Democratic Party.

Here are the chiefs who have quit or resigned after liberal politicians left them destined to fail.

Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall

Hall, the first black woman to lead the Dallas Police Department, resigned Tuesday. Her decision to step down came following reports of inconsistencies in the department’s after-action reports on riots in Dallas.

Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary

Tired of being mischaracterized, Singletary stepped down amid growing animosity towards the police in New York’s third-largest city. Protests and riots have followed the suffocation death of Daniel Prude in police custody. Officers placed a spit hood over Prude’s head to prevent him from spitting and biting them.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Best dramatically sped up her resignation following a vote by the Seattle City Council to slash her budget by $4 million and cut 100 officers from the department.

Portland Police Chief Jami Resch

Chief Resch stepped down on June 8 following a violent wave of riots emanating out from downtown Portland. Oregon’s largest city has witnessed more than 100 nights of riots since George Floyd’s death.

Lake City Police Chief Kipp Coker

Coker resigned for unexplained reasons. He held the position of chief in the South Carolina hamlet since January 2017.

Marion Police Chief Tony Flowers

Flowers, another South Carolina chief, resigned at the end of August to pursue experiences outside of law enforcement. No further explanation was given.

Metropolitan Nashville Police Department Chief Steve Anderson

Anderson dramatically left August 6 after Mayor John Cooper (D) announced it would be the chief’s last day. Anderson’s reason for stepping down months before his planned retirement isn’t known definitely, although he made powerful enemies by resisting alleged police reforms.

Pamplico Police Chief Danny Brown

Brown left the department serving Pamplico, South Carolina for personal reasons on August 21.

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales

An oversight committee demoted Morales for using tear gas to disperse sometimes violent protesters. He was less than one year into his term as chief. Morales chose to retire instead of staying on in a lesser capacity.

Cobden Police Chief B.J. Hale

Cobden, Illinois’ longtime chief resigned two weeks ago “due to some issues with how he and some former officers have been treated,” according to the Cobden Police’s Facebook page.

Hale now works for the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields

Shields quit less than two weeks after she earned national praise for confronting agitated protesters. Everything changed when an officer fatally shot Rayshard Brooks in a struggle during what should’ve been a routine sobriety test. Shields resigned less than 24 hours later, as rioters set fire to the Wendy’s next to where Brooks died.

Las Cruces Police Chief Patrick Gallagher

Chief Gallagher planned to retire at the end of the year but stepped down August 1, following his department’s eighth officer-related homicide in two years.

Rising Star Police Chief Wayne Edgin

Rising Star, Texas city officials persuaded Chief Edgin to step down after they learned Eastland County District Attorney Russ Thomason (R) would no longer accept Edgin’s cases.

“A police officer who cannot file cases with the district attorney’s office cannot effectively do his duty,” Mayor Jim Carpenter wrote in a Facebook post. No one has explained why the DA wouldn’t accept cases filed by Edgin.

Los Angeles School Police Chief Todd Chamberlain

Chamberlain resigned July 1 after the Los Angles Unified School District board agreed to slash his budget by $25 million. Chamberlain said their decision put him in a “position that makes my ability to effectively, professionally, and safely impact those groups unachievable.”

The school board also called for police officers to stop wearing their uniforms and only patrol off-campus.

Jefferson City Police Chief Jason Carroll

Chief Carroll’s undoing was a couple of Facebook posts deemed insensitive to the Black Lives Matter movement, including one that depicted a giant pacifier with the caption: “America’s Newest Monument.”

Several residents in the Texas town complained about the posts, which were soon deleted. But the mea culpa wasn’t enough. He subsequently quit during a Jefferson City Council meeting.

Richmond Police Chief William Smith

Smith resigned at the behest of Mayor Levar Stoney (D) following several nights of unrest in Virginia’s capital, during which police utilized tear gas and rubber bullets against rioters.

Stoney’s interim chief William “Jody” Blackwell, stepped down two weeks after his appointment. While the cause is not definitive, details about a police shooting involving Blackwell emerged after taking office.

Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski

The top cop in Maryland’s second-most populous county resigned June 18 following the publication of a 94-page report by the American Civil Liberties Union alleging widespread discrimination against Black and Hispanic police officers by the department.

Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Steve Conrad

Mayor Greg Fischer (D) fired Conrad on June 1 after learning the officers who fatally shot an innocent bystander did not have their body cameras. Fischer said “This type of institutional failure will not be tolerated.”

The Democrats and their criminal supporters will pay a horrible price for their attacks on Law Enforcement! American Citizens are fed up with all the violence, destruction and treason and when they get a total grasp of the seriousness of the situation, they will take matters into their own hands and put an end to it once and for all. Many of us out here are just waiting for the right leadership and the word to attack and then, God help those traitors that are trying to destroy our country!

Lone Wolf, I have said the exact same thing you posted. “We The People” are just waiting for a Leader with a plan of action. In Texas, every Conservative household has at least 1 firearm, and many have 6-10. And, in 2019, 2.4 million hunting licenses were obtained. That is a lot of people with high powered weapons and they know how to use them and how to track and not be seen. Think about that… 1 state… I read that four stated in the Northeast have more hunters than people in the US Army.

Now if what you say is in fact the truth why is it that over 60% of the population support the protesters.
This is not an Autocratic country, or the Military, persons do have a right to protest in a way that gets results. Now so many other protests for the same thing have stopped because of promises of Police Reform that were never even started in any way, so this time the protesters want to see action, which the President could easily start to make police reforms like most of the Free World have had for years. Now the USA does not even rate in the top 30 countries with the most freedoms, every one of those top 30 countries are all Democratic Socialist Countries, where the people have the most freedoms.

Now it use to be that at least the US rated in the top 20 countries with the most freedoms.

Just what results has these protest achieved? NADA, unless more deaths and destruction. Research the Criminal justice reforms, called the First Steps Act, Trump signed before the protest started. Effective protest is not an angry mob, that only spread hate. Write letters to your elected officials, speak peacefully at city council meetings, and Vote. The video in your link was blocked, but my friends who lived in the UK could tell you ways they were less free there with “free” healthcare and stricter gun laws.

I think you mistake one thing for another in this case. I believe almost ALL Americans support not only the cause of racial equality but the right of people to protest. What they DO NOT support is rioting, looting, arson, vandalism, trying to burn police officers alive, killing police officers, attacking police officers, and attacking or killing people who have different political views. Those promises of police reform have in many places been enacted, and the president did sign an executive order to further that progress. Violence is in no way needed, is counterproductive, and is illegal. Violence should be countered with arrest and prosecution.

Lone Wolf, count me in. We need a leader that can organize a million or so of us law abiding gun owners, and start defending our great country. These Marxist, socialists left loons are just employees of the real enemy of our country and that is Socialism/Communism and that is what the democrat party has become. A rapidly metastasizing cancer in our Nation.

I think that a Police Chief should be elected just like the Sheriff’s are. There is too much political pressure being placed on a Chief from County
Executives, Mayors and City Councils. If people are not raising hell, there
is no need for rubber bullets, teargas and arrests. Don’t like the Chief, vote him out the people choose.

Good idea. And it would completely change the balance of power as the County Executives, Mayors and City Councils would not be able to intimidate the Chief, who has the backing of the people.
