A major scandal is brewing at the Fresno police department.
According to new reports, an officer has recently been terminated.
The reason given was that he has alleged ties to the Proud Boys.
The report stated that the officer in question, Rick Fitzgerald, had made numerous online posts regarding his support of the Proud Boys.
The final straw, however, appears to be a video posted on YouTube that showed him at a protest with a former Proud Boy.
Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama stated, “Effective today, the Fresno Police Department has separated itself from Rick Fitzgerald, and he is no longer employed with the City of Fresno as a police officer.
“I stand by and reassert my prior comments in strongly disapproving of any police officer affiliating with hate groups.
“The integrity and legitimacy of our police department must be maintained.”
