Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas Resigns Following Campaign Pressuring City Council

Mishandling of protests in Charlottesville led to a campaign of criticism.


Anime Right News (ARN) — Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas is resigning from his post, following pressure exerted on the Charlottesville City Council, notably by Groypers (Activists) MicroChip & Ricky Vaughn. This campaign resulted in hundreds of e-mails & phone calls critical of Thomas.

Initially, it was solely reported that he had resigned due to a report critical of Police handling of Charlottesville, which was released 17 days ago as of this posting.

The Washington Post:

Charlottesville Police Chief Alfred Thomas resigned abruptly Monday, just 17 days after the release of a report that was highly critical of the Police Department’s handling of an August white supremacist rally that turned deadly in the Virginia city.

However, there appears to have been more to it than that, with a coordinated campaign spearheading the Police Chief's resignation.

Vaughn indicated that a campaign to criticize the handling by Thomas of Charlottesville had seemingly led to his resigning & retirement.

A reporter for Anime Right News contacted MicroChip to get a statement, where he asserted that he & Ricky Vaughn were responsible for the firing of Thomas.
