"This case is not unique. Reports have indicated that white supremacists have embedded themselves in police departments around the country. The FBI has warned about the problem as far back as 15 years ago."

"That never happened," said Chatman, the sheriff, in an interview with The Telegraph Wednesday. "We don't even have a gun shop here."

Chatman, who is Black, said he concluded that Griggers' claim was perhaps Griggers "being braggadocious."

Sounds like some of the internet tough guys on here who brag about their desire to commit violence against people in the news they don't like.
