To the Editor:

On the decision of the City of Anniston upholding the firing of a police officer because of his membership in the League of the South. Only the Southern Poverty Law Center & the local N.A.A.C.P. have “accused” the L.O.S. of being a racist group whose goal is white supremacy.

Accusations used to have to be proven as fact before being acted upon. On only the word & accusations of the S.P.L.C. & local N.A.A.C.P. did the city fire this officer. It was never proven that this policeman in all his years of service had ever committed a racist act towards any citizen of Anniston during the execution of his duties as a police officer.

Secondly Anniston, S.P.L.C. and local N.A.A.C.P. never proved the L.O.S. was a racist group pushing for white supremacy. As the L.O.S. said many times during this ordeal their one & only goal was for secession which includes all the racial groups living within the borders of any state.

Thirdly, secession is not against the law as prescribed by the original U.S. Constitution. If it is then the United States is an illegal entity as it seceded from its mother country of England without the intend of over-throwing the King & government of England.

Given the N.A.A.C.P`s 1991 resolution to destroy & erase all Confederate / Southern history and #BlackLivesMatter blatant call for the murder of policemen & the rewriting of American history perhaps the city of Anniston should prove its government is not biased towards whites only & identify all its black police officers who are members of the N.A.A.C.P. and #BlackLivesMatter and fire them for being members of racist groups whose only goals are for the benefit of blacks only.

Anniston is unfairly failing to measure all its policemen / citizens by the same measuring stick that it uses to measure some by & this in & of itself is racist.
