“He Was Doing a Great Job”, But We Fired Him Anyway

The Death Of Due Process: Supporting A Constitutional Right Now Gets You Fired | The Daily Wire

Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey was fired on Monday, just hours after he suggested the police officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright in Minneapolis should receive due process before being fired.

After firing Boganey, the Brooklyn Center city council expressed fears that Boganey’s comments about due process might cause the city to further descend into violence.

If his comments about supporting a Constitutional right causes your city to descend into violence, you need to do some better messaging with your citizenry.

“He was doing a great job. I respect him dearly,” [Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson] said. “I didn’t want repercussions at a personal level.”

He was doing a great job, but they fired him anyway. Not for poor behavior. Not for incitement to violence. But for speaking out in favor of a Constitutional Right.

If this is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
