Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill still hasn’t allowed the deputies he fired earlier this week to return to their jobs as ordered by Clayton Superior Court Judge Stephen Boswell.
AJC.com - Hill fired the workers during his first day in office Monday. He reinstated them a day later after Boswell granted Clayton Commission Chairman Eldrin Bell’s request for a restraining order. But after reinstating the workers, Hill placed them on administrative leave with pay — a move that Miller and Bell said is not county policy and goes against Boswell’s order.
“We’re in total compliance with the court order,” said Hill’s attorney, Evan Kaine. “Nothing has changed.”
Hill is completely out of line. He knows those deputies should not have been fired. I didn’t make this connection until tonight, but it should be a nice trip.
NYTimes.com - Sheriff Hill was among a spate of black candidates elected last year in the county, which was once dominated by rural whites. The fired employees included four of the highest-ranking officers, all of them white. Sheriff Hill told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that their replacements would be black.
Let’s break this down. A new black sheriff fires 27 white deputies and plans to replace them with black deputies. Where in the hell are all those who LOVE to scream racism?! It would have happened if a white sheriff had come into office, fired 27 black deputies, and then announced he planned to replace them with white deputies. I can just see the NAACP, the ACLU, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, and who knows what other organizations blowing a gasket if that had been the case. The MSM would have a field day with this as well. It is utter hypocrisy.
I am never one to pull the race card, but I will when I see situations that would be plastered all over the media with some of the biggest moonbats in the history of the country at the helm if situations were reversed.
