An entire North Carolina police department resigned Friday after a new town manager implemented what police officers said was dangerous policies that work against their department.

Police officers in the town of Kenly submitted their “mass-resignation letters citing stress, a hostile work environment and an inability to continue the department’s long-term betterment projects,” according to Fox News.

The culprit behind the massive resignations: Town Manager Justine Jones.

According to reports, Police Chief Josh Gibson “expressed regret toward the negative changes he felt were occurring in the department” and the concern that the town would be left without protection from a police force.

“In my 21 years at the Kenly Police Department, we have seen ups and downs. But, especially in the last 3 years, we have made substantial progress that we had hoped to continue. However, due to the hostile work environment now present in the Town of Kenly, I do not believe progress is possible,” wrote Gibson in a letter.

Neither the police department nor Jones has been willing to speak to the media on the nature of these complaints, local outlets report.

The town of Kenly won’t be the last to see such drastic moves by law enforcement officers. In fact, across the nation law enforcement officers have complained about failed leadership and their inability to do their jobs.

Lawmakers, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), who have called for defunding law enforcement agencies have been the impetus behind a wave of proposed anti-law enforcement policies across the nation.

    My Dad resigned from a city police force in 1969. They hired a new chief who did crazy things, like making them wear a daisy and calling them the “daisy patrol”, but when the new chief wanted them to give up their guns, that was enough for my Dad, who was the President of their FOP, and he & others resigned. The city has never come back from the failure of the 60’s and 70’s experimentations in local governments. My Dad went on to become a successful small business owner and we moved to the suburbs, leaving the failing city behind, like so many others. Good luck to these NC officers – hope they all find better jobs, doing what they love. Public Servants should be cherished, not treated like crap….

    Pelosi is going on a shopping spree. She was planning on one of these partying and shopping sprees when Trump pulled her military aircraft and pissed her off.
    She has no talents to achieve anything diplomatically or militarily. She has no business using US Taxpayer assets to facilitate this Farewell Tour!!!!

Rep. Patrick McHenry Announces Retirement, Adding to Congressional Exodus

Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has declared that he will not seek re-election, becoming the latest in a growing list of lawmakers departing from Congress. McHenry, a close ally of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, stated that he believes “there is a season for everything,” signaling the end of his tenure in the House. Having served since 2005, McHenry is the 37th member of Congress to announce they won’t seek re-election in 2024.

In a statement, McHenry reflected on the significance of the House of Representatives in the American political landscape, calling it the “center of our American republic.” He acknowledged the concerns about the future of the institution due to multiple departures but expressed confidence that new leaders would emerge and guide the House through its next phase.

The departure of McHenry and others comes against the backdrop of political shifts and challenges within the Republican Party. The GOP has faced setbacks in recent elections, including fallout from the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Internal strife and disagreements, exemplified by the rebellion against McCarthy, have characterized the party’s dynamics. The GOP’s approval rating stands at 30%, with a disapproval rating of 66%, reflecting the challenges and divisions within the party.

As McHenry steps aside, questions loom over the fate of open seats in the upcoming election. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report identifies five open House seats as potential Democrat pickup opportunities, while none are listed for the GOP. The departures raise concerns about the party’s unity and ability to navigate the evolving political landscape.

With a total of 20 departing Democratic legislators and 10 Republicans, the changing composition of Congress adds complexity to the political dynamics leading up to the 2024 elections. As McHenry emphasizes a hopeful view of the House’s future, the evolving political landscape will determine the impact of these departures on the balance of power in Congress.
