Cuba, Mo. residents protest firing of police officers

Posted: Updated:
CUBA, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

People in Cuba, Missouri are protesting after the chief of police fired nearly half of the town's police force. Residents are calling for Chief Paul Crow to be fired and for city leaders to return the fired officers to the force.

Crow was recently reinstated to his position after being cleared of accusations of time card fixing and threatening an alderman.

Cuba residents believe Crow fired the four officers out of retaliation for reporting the chief's alleged wrongdoing.

At a meeting filled with the town's residents, cops and police officer's wives, the discussion got heated when an alderman defended his vote to fire the officers.

The fired officers are being represented by St. Louis attorney Travis Noble, who told the city's board he is now considering taking legal action.

The Cuba police force is now down to just six officers.
