CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

Two AL Cops Outed as Hate Group Members

Two police officers in Anniston, Alabama’s police department have been put on administrative leave after allegations that they are members of hate groups. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that Lt. Josh Doggrell and Lt. Wayne Brown were members of the League of the South, a “neo-confederate,” white-supremacist group. The SPLC reported that Doggrell told officials during a department interview, “I’m not going to sell out my position with the League, as something I believe in strongly. If it came down to it, I’d choose the League.” In a video, Doggrell is seen taking the stage at one of the group’s national conferences, talking about gun rights, county supremacy, and his loyalty to the League.
