LOWELL, Mich. (WOOD) — The Lowell police chief was forced to resign just days after a controversial Facebook post that supported four young men who had armed themselves against potential protesters.

Chief Steven Bukala was told to resign by 5 p.m. Thursday or that he would be fired at 5:01 p.m., according to documents obtained Friday by News 8.

He resigned by email.

What is “controversial” about people defending themselves and their property?

Sounds like the city manager is a Democrat thug.

Anyone who thinks this current situation is going to blow over is dreaming. This is the new normal. What the chief said was in no way wrong. But it didn’t 100% fit the PC narrative. So his career must be ruined. The new normal.

“We at the Lowell Police Department support the legally armed citizen and the Second Amendment,” the chief wrote on the department’s Facebook page.

Self defense must now be racist. Who knew?

Starting sentences with the word "so" is controversial.

I do too.

Why did he get canned over defending the 2nd amendment?

I’d be willing to bet if the Chief (isn’t that now racist?) had posted BLACK LIES MATTER and a picture of himself kneeling, he would not have been fired but praised and glorified.

Good question. If you just roll over, the mob will win every time.

I agree with you. Starting sentences with “so” is a serious infraction, and must be penalized with a “red” card, which is what happened to this guy.

Because the Lowell city council is a bunch of liberal idiots?

“I hope he gets himself a good lawyer.”

Since he resigned I doubt he plans on challenging it.

I would guess the math went something like:

Resign: You get your pension.
Get Fired: No pension.
