The outspoken Sheriff’s Captain resigned from the St. Landry Parish Sheriff Department at the end of February after Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz told him to “‘tone down’ his unprofessional comments on our weekly Crime Stoppers messages”
Sheriff Guidroz said, “He disagreed with my orders.”
Announcing his resignation on the steps of the St. Landry Parish Courthouse, Higgins said, “I will not kneel to violent street gangs. I will not kneel to murderers or the parents that raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited, wanna-be, black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind, who just wants to make a profit. I will not kneel to bureaucrats in Baton Rouge, Washington or anywhere else who have forgotten why they wear a badge and who have forgotten who they serve.”
Thankfully, following his resignation, Captain Higgins has found a higher calling.
