“If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names,” said Chief Mills to the LA Times. “I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested.”
The mayor wanted to cut funding ie no money for police dept. But Russell is elected and can't be removed unless recall elect,etc and was reelected after all of this. The mayor decided to do this without even consulting the parish sheriff or her citizens who elected her.
In perhaps an unrelated footnote, the Homer Town Council voted to disband the local police department in 2013, instead opting to utilize the services of the sheriff’s department. As of mid-2013, Russell Mills was still employed by the town of Homer as the Town Marshal.
