"they did treat him wrong," explained Tarcus Hawthorne.
Several Cullen, Louisiana residents aren't supporting the Springhill city council's 4-1 vote to fire longtime detective Dexter Turner from the force.
"He's a great person in general and we all fall shot not saying that he did it," added Sonya Reed.
"That doesn't affect us here in Cullen we don't have anything to do with that, that was his job in Springhill," added Sabrina Sumlin.
Earlier Thursday morning a special hearing was held by the council concluding a two month investigation.
Springhill Chief Will Lynd says Turner was on paid administrative leave while the administration looked into the misconduct claims put forth by Lynd.
"There was an extensive investigation conducted concerning this matter," said Will Lynd. "After I presented the information to the city council. the decided to follow my recommendation"
It is unclear the nature of Turner's actions, however Lynd says it is serious enough to warrant this move.
"The law is the law this is an unfortunate act. I hate I had to got through this situation, nobody have it more than I did because i was in it personally I still like detective turner it's push the unfortunate incident we had to deal with," he said.
Turner currently serves as interim mayor for Cullen, one duty he will continue and despite being fired.
"These six more months that he has left for mayor I think he's going to make it," concluded Hawthorne.
