Our old friend Terrell Bolton, who has since moved on to become police chief in DeKalb County, Georgia, is back in Dallas. He made the trip to visit his long-time physician after losing about 12 pounds in a two-week span, which led to his hospitalization Saturday followed by a diagnosis of diabetes yesterday.
As a result, Bolton has been put on leave "until further notice" by DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis, which comes as news to Bolton. What shouldn't come as a surprise to Bolton, however, is Ellis's signature on an executive order prohibiting Bolton from transferring, promoting, demoting or disciplining any employees, which Ellis announced recently at a police academy graduation. Bolton wasn't too pleased as evidenced by the footage below. I wonder if Chief David Kunkle can make a face like that.
