Via Mediaite: The town of Parma, Mo., elected a black female mayor for the first time in its history, and shortly afterward, five of the six of the town’s police officers resigned.

According to KFVS, three city officials — “the city attorney, the city clerk, and the waste water treatment plant supervisor” — turned in their resignations as well. In their letters to the outgoing mayor, Randall Ramsey, they cited “safety concerns”.

Tyrus Bird, the black woman in question and the former city clerk, narrowly beat Ramsay, who held the mayorship for nearly 37 years, and said in a speech that she had no idea what these “safety concerns” were.
