Jeffries settles for satisfaction after DMV "racial profiling" firing.
LaVay Jeffries, the former DMV worker who was fired last summer after he called Dallas police and flagged the file of a woman he thought was providing false information to get a driver's license, has won his wrongful termination battle.
The resolution of Jeffries' case comes right on the heels of a major fraud trial in the Hillsboro area.
The first people to alert officials were local postal carriers who noticed all the empty envelops going through their system. They were told not to concern themselves.
Then DMV workers, like Jefferies, started noticing odd envelopes being used as residency ID. Most had Hillsboro postmarks. Some came from as far away as Ontario.
The DMV workers, too, were told by supervisors that they weren't law enforcement officials and it was none of their concern.
Nothing to see here. Move along. No pattern of criminal behavior or a cover up exists. Please avert your eyes. Pay attention to American Idol. Do not question the criminals or their proof of ID.
Imagine if a store owner took this same "it's none of my concern" attitude with selling someone cases of cold pills.
