Last week J.D. Sewell, Memphis Police Association President, was fired. Sewell was fired because of his interference with a union member, Sergeant Bettie Carter’s investigation.
After this incident, a hearing officer soon released Sewell from his job stating that he interfered with an investigation. Later on, an official stated that there were more reasons to why he was relieved of duty, ergo his overall record.
Both local union and city leaders protested Sewell’s firing by protesting in front of the police director’s office. Sewell’s overall record contained both bad and good reviews.
No further info has been uncovered regarding the situation.
