Um, weird flex but ok. SMH.
Hustlers, did he nail it or fail it?
According to WKRC, Craig Stivender posted a video to his Facebook page where he says he “learned the values of faith, family and honesty at an early age.”
“That’s why I want to tell you at the start of my campaign some things that politicians would try to hide. Things my opponents may try to use to tarnish my integrity.”
The final event on the list dealt with an inappropriate Halloween costume Stivender wore to a Halloween party with other officers a decade ago.
At the party, which he shares a photograph of in the video, Stivender was dressed as Detroit gangster Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, who along with brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory brought the Black Mafia Family to the forefront of cocaine distribution in the United States in the early 2000s.
As part of his costume, Stivender has darkened his face and skin.
In 2008, around the time the photo was taken, both Flenory brothers were sentenced to 30 years in prison for their crimes.
“I did it to disparage a criminal whose actions hurt our community and country,” Stivender says in the video.
“That was a different time.”
Stivender is currently employed by the Walterboro Police Department, where he was voted Officer of the Year in 2014.
