Mayor Tyrus Byrd

The tiny town of Parma, MO. has a new mayor and only one police officer. That's because the police force quit en masse after Tyrus Bryd became the first black woman to be elected mayor.

Byrd, a former Parma city council member, won the election by just 37 votes in a town with a population of 700.

Five white police officers tendered their resignations when Byrd won the election last week. They were followed out the door by the city attorney, the clerk, and the water treatment supervisor.

Byrd won the election against Mayor Randall Ramsey, who held the office for 37 years.

The departing officers cited "safety concerns" as their reasons for quitting.

According to news station KFVS, the officers' resignation letters could not be found, and all city computer hard drives were wiped clean.

Byrd, who was sworn in as mayor last week, promised to crack down on city government corruption.

Parma is about 150 miles south of Ferguson, MO.

    racism is alive and well. HOWEVA, I kept looking at the pic thinking 'where is TYRUS Byrd/'...I was looking for a man, not a woman.

    well, hopefully there's other folks in town that will step up to protect and serve the community. this is a shame though, really is.

    Nothing out the way happened last night. Everyone cited their opinion on Rae-Rae. I didn't participate (shocking I know) cuz I had to deal with an evil child who spilt a gallon of ice cream on her sister's clothes, inside the drawers, cuz she didn't get any with her lactose intolerant ass. But I digress. Someone paged Dub cuz she the wisest bestest knowledgeable in this here garten. Some how one disagreed with comments & twas it. Think Whang said something like FOH & spit combined. Was nothing major. Said part of the blog is some people can't read the light banter in a comment, unless you MisA & Simp they got dumbo ears & eyes that can see & hear thru the intranet

Depends on how much I want to give them of myself.. or if I just want to push auto-pilot until I find something that professionally suits me at this stage :thinking: Decisions Decisions…decisions…. I haven’t updated my Spotifly in quite awhile..let me do that at 9 am

  • ms_no-no

    :bye: She don't need them; she can hire NEW police and make sure they are properly trained to NOT shoot first. Also, if the police resign, what does that do to their pension?

    So these people basically gave up their pensions, benefits, steady income, etc. all because of "safety concerns"? I wonder how safe these same people feel now that there's only one police officer in town :tea:

  • Just Looking

    I dont remember who said it, but they said something to the tune of: "You know you've integrated into a society that has no plans of integrating with you when you're constantly having firsts...First black doctor, first black judge, first black etc."

    This is some unsurprising bullchit. It's actually a good thing they quit instead of doing what they normally do. Good day to them.

    KiMi get the laser. It hurts, but no more than waxing IMO. The first two sessions are the worst and they give you a topical anesthetic so :thumbsup:

  • MisUnderstood

    The disagreement was whether Rae knew the girl he killt. Someone said he didn't even know her name someone else said he had selective amnesia someone said spit. :lol:
