Decaturish has a detailed report from last night’s Decatur City Commission meeting. Here are the first few sentences…
Don Denard says police racially profiled him and his experience isn’t unique.
The former Decatur Board of Education member brought a group of his supporters to the City Commission’s Feb. 18 meeting. Denard read a letter in response to a Decatur Police investigation that cleared officers of racially profiling him.
“Simply put, the finding by (Police Chief Mike Booker) that the officers did nothing wrong is totally unsatisfactory and unacceptable to me and is inconsistent with the pertinent facts of the case,” Denard said.
Mr. Denard said he would return to the Commission with a formal request as how the Commission should respond to the allegations. The City Commission told Denard that they take his concerns seriously.
