I am going to look forward to bumping this thread when all the cards are on the table.
I think it may end in both sides wishing this shite could have been solved quietly.
No doubt White made some enemies throughout the department, looks like especially with the union. Reasing between the lines it looks like he used a questionable reason to move a higher up union official off a cush job to a job in the field. Usually something that is not done. The union official started airing laundry to Kip and basically creating a reason to get rid of White. Why Kip took the opportunity to get rid of White is what is intruiging. Did White not allow Kip to be involved in decisions? Why is Kip involved in the personnel decisions?
The racial shit, while probably with some basis, is just icing on the cake. No better way to get attention then to start with race baiting.
