Worcester Police Chief Steven M. Sargent has drawn a line in the sand and it could cost him his job. In a post on the department's official Facebook page (embedded below) he said, "I have attended Board of Health meetings to listen to discussions surrounding the important topic of racism... However, over the course of these meetings a Board of Health member has been focused on making baseless attacks against me. I will not be responding to his toxic rhetoric." Chief Sargent's brave stand against the defund the police movement should be a model for all law enforcement. Click the podcast below for my complete take.
