They think I’m scared? They’re stupid. I don’t know what else to do it. So, it is just time to clean them out. There’s a snitch in there somewhere telling us what are we doing. And I’m not gonna have it. I’m not going to have it.” The controversial statement got recorded and now has become the subject of discussion among netizens.

As per reports, Greene demoted two black employees after he was sworn into the sheriff’s office and before Greene assumed his duties, the two black members were part of high-ranking command staff.
