Pendleton police chief reinstated after earlier demotion for controversial Facebook posts

Months after the Pendleton Town Council demoted their police chief for controversial Facebook posts targeting transgender, black and Muslim people, the council reinstated him in a surprise vote Thursday.

But in another vote this week after a new member, Shane Davis, joined the council, the motion to reinstate Farrer passed 3-2.
