    Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald fired Monday

    Wow, he just gave a press conference yesterday.

    Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald has been fired from the department.

    “I’m fired,” he confirmed to the Star-Telegram on Monday afternoon just prior to a press conference.

    City Manager David Cooke began holding the press conference at 3:30 p.m. and sent a news release a few minutes later.

    “I’m no longer a Fort Worth police officer, a Fort Worth police chief,” Fitzgerald said. “I was fired today by the city manager.”

    He declined to say what Cooke told him in their conversation and but said the reason given was “nothing that is in any way valid.”

    “I”m not going to get into it,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m just going to make sure I get an attorney involved and just do things the right way.”

    I heard it live in the press conference the night she was found and the next day. She was calm and look unharmed to the officers.

    WOW. Considering what his department just accomplished I'm not sure what the reasoning could possibly be!

    Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald fired Monday

    This comes weeks after Fitzgerald was kicked out of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas and days after he had a heated encounter with the state union’s president in Washington, D.C. The firing also comes months after Fitzgerald withdrew from consideration to become a top police commissioner in the Baltimore Police Department.

    Cooke said Fitzgerald didn’t have a contract with the city. He had a letter of intent that spelled out a severance if he were terminated with cause, which he was.

    Yep. His bond was $300k on the charge with the prostitute and he bonded out on that.

    Lying being confrontational not dedicated not being a good leader etc are a few reasons. It’s been coming for a while ...
    FWPD has issues much like any other dept.
    don’t have a link handy as I am sitting waiting on traffic so jmo imo and all that jazz.
    He will appeal this decision.

    This is outrageous. I hope the citizens there go nuts on whoever is responsible for this low bond

    I wondered if he was going to sel her for one reason or another too, since he kept her alive beyond a couple of hours. Awful, but easy to wonder why he did what he did.

    I wondered why no one was freaking out about it earlier. His bond has been listed as $100k for at least 24 hours.

    I know this because I've been checking his inmate listing several times a day for A) any new charges and B) to make sure he's still there! C) Hoping his bond will increase.

    I would sure hope so! :eek:
    Hopefully, the additional charges will up that amount, but that he made a $300k bond...scary! He's right where he should be. MOO
