AZ Cop Who Directs Staff to ONLY Jail Native Americans KEEPS JOB.
Arizona police sergeant who told officers to take only Native Americans to jail for shoplifting will be punished with a demotion so that she can retire with a full pension after 2015.
A Chandler Police Department Internal Affairs investigation obtained by The Arizona Republic said that Sgt. Sue Freeman had responded to a shoplifting problem in south Chandler patrol district, which borders the Gila River Reservation, by ordering officers to jail only Native American shoplifters. Other shoplifters were to be given citations and immediately released.
“Your directive was interpreted by members of your team as removing any discretion for handling a shoplifting investigation and more specifically for singling out a race of people for disparate treatment,” the charges against Freeman indicated.
