BREAKING: Entire Indiana Police Dept. Quits After Being Told To Do These 3 SICK Things

Unfortunately, liberalism has so infected our culture that disregard for our police officers is now widespread. Those who most deserve our respect — the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe — are constantly hindered from doing their job properly.

That’s being seen in a shocking new case unfolding in Bunker Hill, Miami County, Indiana, where the entire police force has resigned because the town council repeatedly asked them to perform “illegal, unethical, and immoral activities.”

Michael Thomison, who has served as Town Marshall for the last four years, is leading the resignation of himself and four volunteer reserve officers. Thomison and his team had been considering resignation for months after being subject to ongoing harassment and intimidation from the local politicians.

One of the main charges against the Bunker Hill Town Council is that they wanted to use the police to collect information on their political rivals. The police officers refused to take part in unethical abuses of their resources.

The resignation letter presented by the former officers states that members of the town council continuously requested background checks on fellow councilors. They wanted to uncover their criminal history.

Thomison states that when he and his team did not comply with the illegal orders, they were threatened. The local police found themselves in a situation of choosing between morality and their livelihood.

The resigned officers also resigned because the town failed to provide them with the funding and equipment necessary to face the dangers of their job. There was not enough quality body armor to go around, putting the policemen’s lives at risk when out on the streets.

Thomison said: “I did not want to send someone out there with bad body armor so I would take mine off and provide it to the other officers. I told them we have to provide this, there is an IC code that explains that and says that the town has to provide that body armor.”

For Thomison, there were also personal reasons relating to his resignation. He took time off after being diagnosed with cancer. But after he was prepared to return to work, the city would only give him part-time work. The city was playing with an officer’s career as an intimidation game to cajole him into getting in line with their demands.

Bunker Hill residents are feeling the loss of their police force. The police provide an invaluable service. Local families no longer feel safe without them. For the moment, the town is receiving protection from the county sheriff’s office while they work on hiring a new group of police. However, many officers who have been contacted are familiar with the situation and have refused the job.

As expected, the town council denies that it’s been involved in any wrongdoing. They assert that the differences between them and the police department had nothing to do with illegal requests or with lack of body armor. (via Fox 59).

It’s frustrating that when money is wasted on causes that shouldn’t be receiving public funding–like illegal aliens and refugees — there’s seemingly nothing left over for the folks who go so far as giving their lives to protect American families.

Just as angering is the thought that corrupt politicians see police as nothing more than pawns to use for their immoral plans — rather than the heroes they really are.

    Scanlous.,Police have a very dangerous job and the city and the city council are not serving the citizens of Bunker Hill well. From my perspective they need all police back, meet their requests and have voting for all new council ASAP….

      Guess that means no protection for the stupid city council
      Unfortunately that means all citizens are at risk too.

    Politicians consider themselves above the law. Now a situation has arisen that needs to be investigated, charges if any, presented, and the guilty sentenced. Finally, if any politician is found guilty of breaking laws, trying to cover up illegal activities, or using their position to influence situations for their own benefit, once found guilty not only serve time, but pay very hefty penalties that go directly back to the public…

    Now its time to put the politicians in uniforms and let them patrol the city. I’m pretty sure they are too cowardly to do the job. I would like to know where the citizens are in this liberal mess.I’m sure there are alot more cowards in this town.

    This is seriously misleading. Bunker Hill had 1 paid marshall who quit in December. This was resolved months ago. This isn’t timely or accurate news. The picture does not represent the story at all. They keep posting stuff like this to get people worked up and distract us from what is really going on. Don’t fall for it.

      Amazing the media getting a liberal news story inaccurate???? This group of Hillary whiners need to stop the nonsense and try to start working with the present government and get this country back in line. This is your job to work for the people of this country and make it a better. All this childish behavior is unproductive

      LOL. I like the part about “entire police force”. TOO funny. They are “four volunteer (which also means unpaid)reserve officers “. That’s what you call a “police force”. What a joke. READ people. volunteer + reserve does not mean they are the “police force”. But they must need that body armor? Right? For the dangers in the big city street? Right? LOL too much!!! Bunker Hill, which is so small that it is a town, not a city, has a whopping population of 888 people. I LUV the way y’all get foaming at the mouth over nothing.

    I don’t understand how “liberalism” plays in this story at all. The political positions/party of the politicians was not identified, and supplying appropriate equipment for police officers is not necessarily partisan. BTW – I am NOT a conservative and do not want to be added to conservative email lists. I do try to read from a mix of sources to get a more balanced view of current news. Wish everyone would do that.

    Though I support the officers for their morality and respect for the job and laws, they are employees of the town controlled by the town council members who have control of the budget of the police department and can say what shifts what pay or equipment is issued and who hires the Town Marshal he is in a rock and a hard place but if the board asks for criminal history of anyone who is going to run for office there should not be a problem with that for it is illegal for a felon to hold political office

    The liberals, will stop at nothing, to lie, cheat, and steal, from hard working Americans. They have watched the Thief in Chief for the last eight years. obama, tried his best, for the last eight years, to destroy my country..he has failed! obama, belongs in prison for betraying our constitution in which he swore to uphold, when taking office.
    President Trump, needs our support to put our American morals. Can you not see what’s happening to our country?
