Selectman Apologies for Saying Police Murder People

MCCOMB, MS (Ben Caxton) — A McComb politician said that police “murder” people daily in a heated exchange at a board hearing Tuesday. By Thursday Selectman Devante Johnson had issued a letter of apology to Police Chief Damian Gatlin and McComb officers. In his written apology Johnson noted that he may have said “some things came out that were not accurate.” The murder comments came as the board was discussing harassment claims by a former police detective against the current police chief and a city selectman. Johnson claims his original remarks were “taken out of context.”
