The primary purpose of the Wray lawsuit seems to be getting the former police chief's legal bills covered. Fair enough.
But what's up with the race-based-discrimination claim?
We're supposed to believe that Mitch Johnson, a white man, "discriminated against David Wray based on his race (Caucasian)"?
Wray got squeezed out in a situation rotten with racial politics, and he got smeared in the process.
But what evidence is there that Wray was discriminated against for being white?
He resigned, and in any case he served at the manager's pleasure, so I guess there's no case for wrongful termination. Maybe this is the only avenue left in that direction. Maybe it's an ironic commentary on the use and misuse of discrimination claims.
I kind of like the last one. Otherwise, it just seems bizarre.
