Florida police/fire official quits posts due to reported KKK ties

News Room Administrators Staff

Fruitland Park, FL, United States (NewsBahn) – David Borst, a deputy police chief who also served as fire chief for the Orlando suburb of Fruitland Park, resigned from both posts late last week following the release of an FBI report stating he belonged to the Ku Klux Klan.

Officer George Hunnewell, alreadly demoted for performance and attitude issues, was also fired from the police department for the same reason.

Local officials said they took the matter seriously with the KKK’s history of anti-black rhetoric and actions.

“We cannot nor will we tolerate any philosophy that is inherently morally corrupt or one that espouses bigotry or any intolerance aimed at any groups or individuals because of their race, religion, ethnicity or gender or sexual orientation,” said City Manager Gary La Venia, according to USA Today.
