The news is out: [The Louisville Metro Police major who called Black Lives Matter supporters “punks” who will be “washing our cars” has been relieved of duty and will retire, the department said Friday.
LMPD interim Chief Robert Schroeder addressed the offensive statements at a press conference, saying Maj. Bridget Hallahan will be gone from the department on Thursday.
“We received several inquiries regarding emails by Fifth Division Maj. Bridget Hallahan. We are aware of these emails, and we have been looking into them,” Schroeder said.
“They were her personal opinions and do not represent the views of this department,” he said. “She has been relieved of her command of the Fifth Division, and Maj. Hallahan has accepted responsibility for her emails and is retiring from the department, effective Oct. 1.”]
Bridget will feel better when she finds herself a black man to make her squeal.
