Portsmouth Police Chief Terminated After Charging State Senator For Destroying Monuments

by Sonny CrockettNovember 16, 2020

Portsmouth, VA – Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene was terminated Monday morning after being suspended from her position as Police Chief approximately two months ago.

“I believe I was wrongfully terminated for upholding the law,” she said in a Facebook Live feed of her press conference “and (I’m) being retaliated against for sticking to my sworn oath; that I swore to serve and protect my citizens, community and keeping my officers safe.”

The former city manager of Portsmouth removed Greene from her position on September 4.  This was just a few weeks after Greene announced felony charges against Democrat state Senator Louise Lucas and others in relation to protests and monument destruction that occurred in June.  Senator Lucas was caught on video instructing Portsmouth Police officers to stand down during the protests.

After Senator Lucas instructs the police to stand down, protestors began to rip down the statue.  One of the pieces of the monument struck a man in the head, sending him to the hospital in critical condition. It took several months for the man to recover.

Racially motivated firing. Stupid liberals.

apparently you can do wrong if you are an elected black official while an appointed white police chief can be fired for upholding the law. The state senator should also be fired and charged with a crime.
