Is That ‘Woke’ I Smell? N.C. Police Chief, Entire PD Quit, Citing New Town Manager



Kenly, North Carolina, a small town located near Podunk and not far from Hee-Haw, lost its police chief of almost 20 years, plus all five of its full-time cops and two city clerks—in one day. This after Kenly was already down three officers from its roster.

The tiny town of 2,000 residents is left with three part-time officers and help from the Johnston County Sheriff.

What Went Wrong?

Kenly hired a new town manager, Justine Jones, one month ago. Rumor has it she is “woke.”

FACT-O-RAMA! Unlike mayors who are elected, town managers are hired by the city to oversee the town’s government and facilities.

Details are scarce, but WRAL News was able to locate a copy of Chief Josh Gibson’s resignation letter, which included the line, “due to a hostile work environment now present in the town of Kenly, I do not believe progress is possible.”
