Benton Harbor Police Chief Resigns Under Pressure

Earlier this week, Benton Harbor police chief Sam Harris was forced to resign. Sam Harris’s resignation was accepted. Police captain Al Mingo will take over in Benton Harbor later this summer. Sam Harris failed to build a solid foundation. New chief Al Mingo compares the situation in Benton Harbor now to the civil rights movement of the late 60’s. He said residents need to speak up and take back their community.

Mingo said, "We are moving forward with this and we are going to have to have that same type of attitude(Harris's)take place in Benton Harbor. We see the city actually bouncing back."

Enough is enough! Sam Harris was forced out - Mingo, we will force you out if you do not stop the police brutality in our community .~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
