realmolo: The city council should now vote to remove this guy from office.

Then, they should beat the shiat out of him.

They can remove him anytime they want since he's straight. Sexual orientation isn't a protected class.

Wyalt Derp: So by tightening his grip, he caused all his power to slip through his fingers? Excellent.

It is a well-known fact that if you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control. Many experts advocate holding on loosely (but not letting go).

From another article about the newly hired chief:

According to a copy of Davis' contract obtained by the Morning News, Davis is scheduled to start work as chief on July 1. Tuesday's election results are set to be certified at 11 a.m. Friday. Though Davis' salary was redacted on the contract provided to media, several council members said they have heard the contract stipulates Davis is to be paid $40,000 a year for two years.

Furthermore, a clause in the contract stipulates that "If the town of Latta changes the form of government and another person is hired or selected as police chief, the employee as named in this contract shall be entitled to continued employment at the contracted rate of compensation (with applicable increases) for the term of this contract and for as long as the employee's job performance is satisfactory."

ZombieBear:  I hope someone takes him aside and educates him that being drunk is a bigger determent to the safety of his child then two independent women kissing.

But it is not a deterrent to his daughters becoming something other then a baby factory...

Geotpf: This is kind of a demonstration of how bigotry works, and one of the main reasons why Democrats win in urban areas and Republicans win in rural areas.

People in rural areas and small towns usually never know anybody who isn't almost exactly like them.  They don't personally know any gays/blacks/Mexicans/Jews/Muslims/whatever.  So, such people are scary foreigners.

People in urban areas, by contrast, probably have at least one of each of the above living in the same building as they do.

But this woman wasn't a "scary outsider lesbian"; she'd been in the town forever.  So, when she was forced out, they rebelled.

The two other reasons for this urban/rural Republican/Democratic divide are the size of government (people in urban areas "touch" government a lot (public transit for instance); people in rural areas, well, don't) and gun rights (guns in urban areas means drug dealers and gang bangers shooting up the place; guns in rural areas means a tool for hunting and protecting livestock from predators and for target shooting).

What the hell are you doing man? You don't bring reason, thought and empathy to an internet argument. If this place starts to civilize and treat people with dignity I'm holding you responsible.

Actually, The Mayor just hired a different Police Chief in order to override the council

Latta Mayor Earl Bullard says he's hired Freddie Davis as the new police chief of Latta, after firing the previous chief, Crystal Moore, on April 15.
The announcement about Davis' hiring comes one day after voters approved a referendum Tuesday to change the town's form of government giving council more power than the mayor.

Davis was hired one week before the referendum, around June 18, and the contract was signed on June 23, Bullard said.
Bullard said he interviewed seven candidates for the position since Moore's termination.

Crystal Moore was very emotional as she told us today she feels as if she's been fired again.

"I have went from being a ecstatic, overwhelmed, not able to speak to crushed again. Once again the citizens came out and did what was necessary. He said he would do what the citizens wanted what. They came out and they spoke. They supported the yes vote," said Moore.
She said she believes Bullard hired Davis to retaliate against the town for changing the form of government.

Bullard said he didn't hire Bullard for his own selfish reasons, but felt he was the most qualified for the position and that it was time for the town of Latta to move forward.
