The city council of the town of Vincent, Alabama, unanimously voted on Thursday to terminate the police chief and dissolve the entirety of the police force after a racist joke was shared amongst officers through text. WVTM 13 reports that Assistant Police Chief John Goss allegedly was the one to send the racist text that quickly circulated to his officers. Due to the town’s police closure, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is taking over all calls for the Vincent Police Department.
