Mayor of Kent, Washington says they "badly underestimated outrage over assistant police chief’s Nazi insignia"

Seattle Times:

[The mayor] says her administration badly underestimated the public outrage that would spring from the decision not to fire an assistant police chief who posted Nazi insignia on his office door, embraced the rank of an officer in Adolf Hitler’s murderous Schutzstaffel, or SS, and joked about the Holocaust.


[The initial discipline imposed was] two weeks off, which he could take as vacation, and ordering him to undergo cultural sensitivity training.
