The Colorado Springs police chief, Vince Niski, decides not to fire an officer who commented “KILL THEM ALL” on the social media posts of Black Lives Matter protesters. The officer was instead penalized with a 40-hour suspension and loss of more than $2,000 in wages. He was also removed from his specialized unit and reassignment to a different position in the department. Chief Niski defends his decision not to fire the officer, despite calls from the public to do so.
He wrote in his latest letter, “While his statements were harmful and reprehensible, I cannot deprive the community of a good police officer and his services because of an isolated incident of an error in judgment.”
