In case you forgot, Gabriella Calhoun is the young lady from the Denny’s incident that happened in 2013.

Her case also led to the discovery of racists comments made by Sgt Shumaker that had been buried by the City.  Sgt Shumaker wasn’t fired, he just got a letter in his file that will disappear in 5 years if no further incidents take place.

This is my original story from 2013:
