Wichita NAACP wants police off

A Wichita Police Department Sargeant and two officers have been suspended because of their alleged racist and sexist comments at a private party.
The local chapter of the NAACP is calling for the department to fire the men.

Kevin Myles, President of the Wichita NAACP spoke to KSN about the incident.

“They call into question the fitness of these officers to actually protect and stand up for the rights of citizens for whom they have such little respect.”

Kevin Myles says that suspending the officers without pay isn’t enough.

"These are comments that are very hateful, very bigoted and very prejudicial against African Americans and women."

Myles claims he's been told by sources what the officers allegedly said. KSN has been unable to independently confirm Myles' claims.

"The rules on conduct on becoming state that an officer must conduct themselves both on duty and off duty in a way that is reflective of the morals and ethics of that department", said Myles.

As for the department, Chief Norman Williams said in a statement,

“Such allegations have been and always will be thoroughly investigated and, if necessary, officers will face the appropriate discipline."

The department's Professional Standards Bureau is currently investigating the incident.
