A Florida police chief has resigned after allegedly making a racist remark about the only black police officer in an all-white force.
According to Dailymail, Glen Cove Springs Police Chief Robert Musco resigned last Thursday. A labor law firm hired by the city found evidence that he violated policy by subjecting Officer Kimberly Robinson to workplace harassment
Reports also claim that Musco was discovered to have put pressure on Robinson to drop the complaints against him.
The complaint came amidst a January 12 conversation in which Musco, who’s white, referred to Robinson as a “token” while discussing staffing for a Martin Luther King Jr. event.
Musco was also overheard speaking in an “African-American ‘mocking’ tone” and had also made other disparaging remarks about the holiday, according to the report.
