Del. cop files discrimination suit
The Associated Press
WILMINGTON, Del.- A senior officer in the Wilmington Police Department is suing the city in a discrimination case.
The jobs are the second-highest in the department. The mayor fills the positions.
Senior Corporal Kevin Connon, the police union president, is supporting Dietz.
He says there is an unwritten rule that one of the city's two inspectors must be white and the other must be black.
Dietz, who is white, is a 26-year veteran of the police department.
