Arpaio Clone in GA Resigns After Racist Text Messages

The police chief of Grantville, Georgia has made no secret of his admiration for fascist Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, even sending some of his officers to Maricopa County, AZ to learn from the Jedi master. That police chief has now resigned after it was revealed that he sent racist text messages to his officers:

Embattled Grantville Police Chief Doug Jordan has officially resigned.

On Friday Jordan was suspended upon allegations of several text messages that were allegedly sent by Jordan to Grantville police officers which contained derogatory language – specifically the “N-word,” according to Grantville Mayor Jim Sells.

“When we approached the chief in regards to these allegations, he did not deny them and accepted some culpability,” Sells said. “Following this revelation, he was immediately placed on suspension.”…

“The language he used was absolutely unacceptable – especially for someone serving in a supervisory position,” Sells said.

While Councilman Johnny Cooks agrees, he is less than satisfied with the resignation of Jordan, calling it “unacceptable.”

“Frankly, I’m not satisfied with a resignation,” said Cooks. “A resignation, in my opinion, means you are no longer a city employee and thereby we are no longer obligated to investigate any further the details regarding the situation.”

So he’s a fan of Apraio’s racism as well as his authoritarian tactics. How unsurprising.

    If he’s dumb enough to send racist text messages then he’s not smart enough to be police chief.

    Now, now, now, let’s not be all hasty about throwing around a “racist” diagnosis! It’s such an ugly word. Besides it’s clear that only someone who is mentally ill/unstable/insane would send such texts. /sarcasm

    Plausible deniability always close must you keep, otherwise the Leftist Side of the Force destroy you will.

    “. . . he did not deny them and accepted some culpability.” SOME culpability?

    Wouldn’t Arapio be be a Sith master? They are the masters of the Dark Side, after all.

    He resigned? Then he’s not really a clone of Piehole Joe, is he?

    What democommie said. I can’t imagine Sheriff Joe resigning for racist texts. If he had any shame or honor he would have resigned via seppuku a long time ago.This was a weak wannabee, and not worth the attention of a Sith Master.

    Grantville is semi-famous as the “Walking Dead” town, chosen because of its state of dilapidation. I don’t know what that has to do with the post, but… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grantville,_Georgia
