As if Detroit doesn’t have enough problems, good cops are now being discriminated against for reporting bad behavior.
Lt. Charles Flanagan, who is white, has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, according to the Detroit News.
The complaint alleges tat the 29 year police veteran found numerous violations after taking over the drug unit. Incidents include a sergeant who kept drug evidence for himself and another who wrote up fake evidence tags for electronic items that were seized during raids.
Not only was Flanagan transferred out of the job, but also two other white officers who were allies with him.
According to the report, “Deputy Chief Brown tried to transfer Lt. Flanagan because he reported his subordinates for possible criminal activity that took place under Brown’s watch,” Rataj, the officers attorney, told the newspaper. Chief brown is black.
