Aurora, Colorado Chief of Police Vanessa Wilson fired Officer Douglas Wilkinson on Thursday.
The investigation was opened following an email sent by Wilkinson to 235 members of the department on November 16, 2021. Five employees came forward making a complaint about the contents of this email.
The email said in part, “I suppose that the city could do political polling to make sure that the average politics of the department reflects the political ‘diversity’ of ‘the community.’ Or, to match the ‘diversity’ of ‘the community’, we could make sure to hire 10% illegal aliens, 50% weed smokers, 10% Crackheads, and a few child molesters and murderers to round it out. You know, so we can make the department to look like the ‘community.'”
The police can get away with shooting and killing innocent people but a feisty anti-diversity email is where the departments draw the line? They deserve the contempt.
