    Maybe a stretch, but all the police and several officials resigned.

    Voters in Parma, Missouri voted in their first African-American female mayor.

    Tyrus Byrd will be sworn in as mayor on Tuesday evening, April 14, at the Parma Community Building.

    According to Mayor Randall Ramsey, five out of six police officers resigned this week, effectively immediately.

    Mayor Ramsey said the city's attorney, the clerk and the waste water treatment plant supervisor also turned in resignation letters citing "safety concerns."

    Mayor Elect, Tyrus Byrd, said she was unaware of the situation and plans to ask questions about the "safety concerns" during Tuesday night's ceremony.

    Mayor Randall Ramsey served the city of Parma for 37 years during two different terms.

    I believe it's against KKK rules to work for a black.

    I thought this was going to be a Diana Ross thread.

    This can become a real social experiment! :cheer2:

    She can fill all those positions with eager blacks from Ferguson and then wait to see how long before this town becomes Little Detroit! :bigthink

    that's a lot of POElice for that small town. they sound like a bunch of sore losers.

    if it's a majority black town, they should hire all black cops.

    Who knows why they resigned - it's easy to assume they don't like blacks, but nobody knows that. Maybe this woman ran on a platform of "putting a leash on those po-lice"? Or remember that nutty black mayor a month or two back who was shouting at a cop to move his car because she needed to go out - maybe this woman is like that?

    They'll be renaming the town to little Haiti or some other third world shithole within a matter of weeks.

    "Ooh, baby, baby
    Where did our cops go?
    Ooh, don't you want me
    Don't you want me no more
    Ooh, baby"




    Now it is.

    This is one of those textbook Britt Mchenry "release half the story so people get outraged then fix it later when no one notices."

    In reality the chance of a reason like this is 99.9%. Of course it will likely be reported with race as the headline. Racist cops hate blacks and all that.

    She's probably an activist who ran on a platform of "getting even" with whitey so it's not surprising that everyone resigned.
