In firing police Chief Vanessa Wilson, Aurora officials seem to have forgotten why she was hired

1 min read


The rally at the Capitol steps Monday was different from all the other rallies held in support of Elijah McClain, the young man who died at the hands of Aurora police and paramedics in August 2019 for the crime of Walking Strangely While Black.

This rally was for Vanessa Wilson, the recently fired Aurora police chief, who lost her job because apparently she was too committed, or maybe just committed at all, to following the city’s consent decree from the state attorney general’s office to fix the Aurora police department. 

“I have to stand up for myself,” Wilson said Monday. “I wasn’t going to go quietly into the night when I know what this is driven by. This is a political agenda and there shouldn’t be partisan politics within public safety. I am exploring all options.”
