Wiccan Police Officer Sues L.A. for Religious Discrimination
An LAPD sergeant who has been on the force for nearly 25 years is suing the city, claiming that he suffered religious discrimination for his religious beliefs, according to a news report by CBS News' L.A. affiliate.
Sgt. A.J. DeBellis alleges that the department held a mandatory training session and a holiday party at a Christian church. He claims that he lost his shift as watch commander in retaliation for his complaints.
CBSLA notes that his wife has filed a similar complaint.
Some police departments, notably the Salem, Massachusetts Police Department, have embraced historical symbols of witchcraft (as above).
