NC town's entire police force quits in protest

An entire police force in North Carolina has resigned in protest of the town's newly recruited "progressively responsible" town manager.

Kenly Police Chief Josh Gibson made the surprising revelation in a Facebook post on Thursday.

saying the assistant town manager and a key clerk had joined him and his five officers in quitting in protest.

“I have put in my 2 weeks notice along with the whole police dept.,” he wrote of the force he has served with for 21 years.

“The new manager has created an environment I do not feel we can perform our duties and services to the community,” he wrote of Justine Jones

He made it official with a formal letter of resignation to Jones herself, according to a copy obtained by WRAL.

“However, due to the hostile work environment in the Town of Kenly, I do not believe progress is possible,” he told Jones

Jones declined to discuss the drastic move, telling WRAL she was “not at liberty to talk because of a personnel matter.”

She accused Richland County leaders of “hostile” treatment and for not paying her fairly because she was black and had a disability, court docs show.

She also accused the county of discriminating against her because she was a “whistleblower” who “reported serious fraud
