South Carolina Police Chief Crystal Moore, Fired For Being Lesbian, Officially Reinstated


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. Head to the twitter feed of SC reporter Liz Cooper, who live tweeted the event, where many Latta citizens showed their support for Moore, a town fixture who has held her position for 23 years.

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