An entire police force quit their jobs to protest the incessant “micro-management” from Pine Ridge, South Carolina’s Mayor Robert Wells. After multiple police officers resigned from their posts Lt. Vince Silano was appointed as interim police chief for the Pine Ridge Police Department. Now, Lt. Silano has also quit the job, leaving the department without any full-time cops.

The Daily Caller reports:

Silano cited “the constant impediment of police matters and micro-managing at the hands of Mayor Robert Wells” in his resignation letter.

Silano was the fourth police chief for the small town in the last three years, the Washington Examiner reported. Wells ended the police department’s canine unit and was criticized for doing so.

Mayor Robert Wells Jr. was also criticized in the resignation letters signed by two other police officers who resigned, WLTX.com reported.

“My reasoning for leaving is simple, I can longer work in a department where the Chief of Police or his officers aren’t supported by the council,” Officer Frankie Neely Jr. wrote in his resignation letter.

Lt. Silano’s decision to quit the job has left members of the small South Carolina town feeling anxious and unsafe in their town.

They can come to Rockford Illinois. They are looking for officers both in the city police and the county sheriff.

They can come to my town too. We want more police but the city council want to spend $ on new roads to recreational facilities.

At last count, Houston, TX had 400 unfilled, full time positions in the police department. We’d be delighted to have them here.

Don’t go to Houston. The Leftist Mayor is no different than Mayor Wells! Houston was invaded by Californians.

Mayor: “What you gonna do when they come for you?” You must be worst nay-sayer that ever held a position in city government in your entire state. Probably should get his act together or face insurance cancellations, recall elections, random acts of violence and the state police staying rather far back when you want help. I can see the Chamber of Commerce slogans now: “Come to Pine Ridge–The most hateful place in all of South Carolina”

Actually, David: Come to pine Ridge! Police are gone. The officers need to turn off their phones and let the STUPID mayor deal with crime. Just see how anarchy works at home.
