Pocomoke City At Center Of Investigation With EEOC



Pocomoke City is a town in the midst of a controversy. The very popular and effective Chief Kelvin Sewell was fired because he refused to fire Frank Savage who had made an EEOC complaint against the Worcester County Sheriff run drug task force about discrimination in his work environment.


Frank had been a member of this team for 2 years when in July of 2014 he resigned from the team and filed an EEOC  ( Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) complaint against them stating he was subjected to a racially hostile work environment with allegations he was called the n-word, had references made by the team to the Ku Klux Klan, shown a photo of President Barack Obama on a food stamp and had a dead animal put on his car.

The EEOC has ruled there is probable cause to believe these firings were retaliatory. There was no reason to fire Kelvin Sewell, except for the fact he wouldn't fire Savage while he had an active EEOC complaint filed.

You may want to dismiss the EEOC, but they are a professional organization that takes these claims serious, and they see this as one of them. I happen to know the players in this game, and I can tell you there is much more to come in this investigation. A Dispatcher changing a call in the computer to protect a loved one, dispatchers riding around in marked cars doing police work they have no training to do. Pocomoke officials did nothing to those people, and yet they still are employed today.

A Pocomoke Council member who voted to terminate Sewell who is an active member of the very Sheriff's Department Savage filed a complaint against. A former Mayor of Pocomoke and active Lt at the Worcester Sheriff Department deeply involved in the Pocomoke political scene, representing the Sheriff Department at a hearing.


You may not want to face it Pocomoke but this time things are gonna change.

This can be done seamlessly if handled properly because the citizens of Pocomoke are the victims.Changes made should be accompanied by routine return visits to prevent future retaliations.

Mr. Taylor, Do you know Officer Savage? Can you tell me if he was neat, tall and wore dreads. I wonder if he was the Officer who assisted me at one time.
He was very polite, and helpful.

There was nothing wrong with all three of those guys. The fact of the matter is that good experience police officers came in contact with bad politicians and the bad politicians won using the good ole boy system.

dragonfly 413, you know who Savage is. Don't play dumb asking questions like you're so innocent. You're just like me. Glad they all gone.

They may be gone for now but they will be back. When Chief Sewell does come back I hope he cleans house because the officers that are here now are doing nothing. I hardly see them.
