BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Both Mayor Kip Holden and former Police Chief Dewayne White had a few things
to say after what was a contentious and, at times, heated hearing to determine
the future employment of White with the Baton Rouge Police Department.
The Metro Council Chambers, where the hearing was held, was packed, and
there were plenty of officers and people from the community there.
After the hearing, both the Mayor and former Chief gave the sense that this
is far from over.
"Its a sad commentary in America when anyone would chose a public
forum to tell and give the misinformation that he gave today," said Mayor
Holden about Dewayne White.
"You know, whenever you reach out and people feel that you genuinely
care for them, they know it. And I genuinely care for the people of Baton
Rouge- each and every body, and I think that has mustered a lot of
support," said former Chief White.
"This man is the master of deception and the people of Baton Rouge
deserve a lot better and I am very, very much in favor of the recommendation of
my chief administrative officer, William Daniel," said Holden.

the Baton Rouge Police Department.
Several Metro Council members held a public hearing shortly after noon time
and heard comments from the public. The majority of the people in attendance
supported Dewayne White.
"He has been a hands-on chief with my community," said Pastor
Robert Joseph. "He has helped me to trust those who serve and protect
