TENNESSEE POLICE CHIEF TELLS OFFICERS WHO ‘DON’T HAVE AN ISSUE’ WITH GEORGE FLOYD ARREST TO TURN IN BADGES

A police chief in Tennessee said on Wednesday that officers who “don’t have an issue” with the arrest of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died earlier this week after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him to the ground by kneeling on his neck, should turn over their badges.

“There is no need to see more video,” Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy tweeted on Wednesday. “There no need to wait to see how ‘it plays out.’ There is no need to put a knee on someone’s neck for NINE minutes. There IS a need to DO something.

“If you wear a badge and you don’t have an issue with this…turn it in,” he continued.
