Town’s Riddled With Racism, Texas Cops Say

FORT WORTH (CN) - Two police officers sued the City of Everman in Federal Court, claiming they were fired for protesting the policedepartment's "acts of excessive and unreasonable force, assault and battery, unlawful receipts of money, and acts of overt racism and unlawful discrimination". In separate cases, Jerry Sillers and Michael Rivera demand punitive damages from the city, the police chief and city manager. See sample complaint.
