City Commissioners Ask Black Florida Mayor to Resign After Referring to Police Officer as a ‘Pig’
Hostility to the police among blacks is a huge problem so any encouraging of it is very problematical. Black hostility puts cops on hair-trigger alert when they approach blacks so any false move on the part of the black can get the black shot. So this is literally a life and death matter
The Stuart, Florida City Commission is demanding the resignation of Mayor Eula Clarke for making a derogatory remark last month about a Stuart Police officer, referring to him as a “pig.”
According to a complaint by the Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association (PBA), which represents Stuart Police officers, the mayor entered a local convenience store, saw Officer Edward Fitzgerald speaking with an employee, and said: “I didn’t know we were serving pig tonight.”
“No City of Stuart employee should be subjected to verbal harassment or demeaning comments by one of the City’s elected officials,” the complaint stated.
“We’re outraged,” PBA president John Kazanjian said, calling the mayor’s remark “just a slap in the face…we don’t need someone like that as a public servant.”
Stuart Police Chief David Dyess told local TV channel WPTV that he was “kind of stunned or shocked that the mayor would make a comment like that to the officer.”
Mayor Clarke has repeatedly apologized for the incident, including sending a formal letter to Kazanjian in which she confessed: “I am so sorry for this entire event.”
“My choice of words, and my speech, was patently offensive, and I would hope that Ofc. Fitzgerald, and all law enforcement officers will forgive me for this transgression,” the mayor wrote.
