A Nashville, TN, Metro police lieutenant who was caught on camera making racial comments to her subordinates is now being accused of fraud.
Via Nashville’s Fox17.com:
The president of the Fraternal Order of Police says Lt. Ada Thaxter wrote a letter accusing the department of discrimination and used his name to send it to the mayor’s office and even the FOX 17 newsroom.
The Metro Police Department will not confirm that Lt. Thaxter is a suspect, but the president of the FOP says he knows she is because he’s the victim in the case.
Danny Hale says detectives found Lt. Thaxter’s fingerprints on the fraudulently written letter.
“They said that there was an AFIS quality print,” said Hale.
Lt. Thaxter is the same woman that was caught on camera telling other officers not to complain about her or bad things will happen to them.
“One gave me a bad evaluation and he lost two babies, his wife lost, his house flooded and he could not freaking sell it and he’s been skipped over for captain four or five times,” she said in the video.
