More Calls For Firing Of Michigan State Police Director

Calls for the director of the Michigan State Police to step-down are getting louder. Activists on Friday delivered 85,000 nationwide petition signatures to the governor demanding Colonel Kriste Kibbey Etue to be removed from her post. State Representative Leslie Love of Detroit spoke with Michigan News Network about the issue.

“We are looking at some systematic changes,” Love said. “What are you going to do now in terms of the state police department to right the wrongs and the biases that you had in your department?”

Governor Rick Snyder announced a punishment Thursday of five-days docked pay following a Facebook post by Etue calling NFL players that kneel during the national anthem “degenerates.”
