Dear Governor Edwards:
This letter is to serve as my resignation from the Louisiana State Police Commission.
The commission cannot function as a Civil Service Board with the people you have allowed Col. Edmonson to place on the commission.
Col. Edmonson does whatever he chooses to do. He has no credibility when it comes to the truth, lavish spending, accepting of gifts, taking credit for awards others have earned, destroying evidence, and the list goes on and on.
Col Edmonson has brought shame and disgrace to the honest men and women of the State Police. They deserve better.
I won’t be a part of or participate in a commission that has no integrity or purpose but to rubber stamp what corrupt leadership desires.
May you continue to enjoy the “hayride” for three more years.
U.S. Special Agent (Retired)
Associate Professor of Criminal Justice
