Memphis Police Department's Ret. Col. Darrell Sheffield speaks out against ordinances passed by city council that he said limited officers' ability to prevent crime.
A retired Memphis police officer who served on the force for 35 years was shut down by the city council from speaking out against restrictive ordinances he believed was "pro-criminal" and to the detriment of public safety.
"Idisagree with the whole idea of placing restraints on police officers in legally enforcing the law," Ret. Col. Darrell Sheffield told Fox News Digital. "I mean, if you don't want to be stopped by a police officer, basically stop violating the law."
Memphis is one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. The likelihood of being a victim of a crime is 1 in 39.
City council voted to put in place new stringencies on law enforcement's practices in response to the matter of Tyre Nichols, who died during a confrontation with Memphis police after he was pulled over for a traffic stop.
