    Police Chief Hooper needs to be FIRED …. and I don’t care how politically correct her “credentials” are…. she did nothing about this when it happened and no one would even know of this outrageous incident now -INCLUDING THE ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL- unless that video had been leaked. Really, no more cover-up. HOOPER NEEDS TO GO…. who according to Todd Williams from his letter written to the SBI in January (concerning the beating that took place in July 2017…. ) she finally agreed/relented that a criminal investigation was warranted. OUTRAGEOUS….. to put it mildly.

  2. Enlightened Enigma

    Did she ever become an Oathkeeper ? I hope the police advisory committee will expand their mission toward compelling local LEOs to take the Oath to protect the citizens, not the government, in times
    of turmoil or marshall law. are genuine American law men and women. Glad we have some AVL police officers who affirmed the Oath. Sheriff’s dept ?
