Captain Clay Higgins resigns

He's known for being bold, controversial, and boisterous. He's also famous for his Crime Stoppers videos. Now, Captain Clay Higgins is resigning.

Capt. Higgins stood outside St. Landry Parish courthouse in Louisiana as he announced his departure. Backlash was prominent after his most recent video addressing gang members of the Abeville area.

During his resignation speech, Higgins said:

I was not forced to resign. The sheriff didn’t ask for my resignation. Rather, I’ve turned in my badge as a matter of conscience.

I would die rather than sacrifice my principles. I would leave my wife without a husband, my children without a daddy, rather than kneel to the very forces of evil that I have so long stood against.


Captain Clay Higgins respectfully tenders his resignation to the Sheriff of St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office.

I can certainly understand the reasons for the resignation. Nonetheless, it saddens me.
