Estherwood, LA – As TFTP reported back in 2017, the assistant chief of police for the Estherwood Police Department, Wayne Welsh resigned after coming under public scrutinyfor sharing a racist meme on Facebook that went viral. After initially attempting to defend his actions on the social media website, the officer reportedly submitted his resignation. However, because the system is designed to protect racist and killer cops, this cop has since been promoted to the chief of police.
Tendering a resignation before disciplinary action can be taken is a common tactic among police, as it allows their record to remain untarnished, thus being able to continue operating as a police officer in another municipality – with their new employers being none the wiser as to their previous heinous actions. However, the world knew how racist this man was, yet he was still promoted.
“I treat everybody the same,” Welsh, 54, said. “You don’t cross me, I don’t cross you. We all get along good.”
However, his posts to social media say otherwise.
The incident was first reported in 2017 by KATC, which refused to identify the officer in question due to him having not been charged with a crime. Thankfully, social media stepped up to the plate, as a Twitter user going by @Freeyourmindkid found, and posted, incriminating screenshots of officer Wayne Welsh’s Facebook page.
