I believe Detective Savage's story. I believe that he suffered terrible race discrimination and retaliation by Worcester County and Pocomoke City law enforcement and government officials. Detective Savage was proud of being a police officer. He started with the Pocomoke City Police Department, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and quickly won appointment as the first ever Black officer to serve on an elite Worcester County task force. No one should have to suffer the kind of racial harassment and retaliation he suffered just to keep a job – especially a job where he put his life on the line every day to protect people in his community. I support Detective Franklin Savage in his fight for justice.
