After a two-month controversy, former Latta, South Carolina police chief Crystal Moore has returned to her old position despite a temporary firing by Mayor Earl Bullard. Following a successful vote on Friday, wherein the Town Council overturned Bullard's firing of Moore and hiring of a new police chief, Moore was officially reinstated.

In addition to Cooper's photos, SC Equality has a couple shots featuring Moore. Check them out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. It is not over yet in Latta, South Carolina. The police chief Crystal Moore now has SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS in legal fees alone thanks to the bigotry of Mayor Earl Bullard. He should be forced legally to pay them!

  2. She would have to sue to collect back the legal fees and she should have every right to get them too.
