Cody Ann Cook – An EEOC Discrimination Story

This is an interview with active New York police officer Cody Ann Cook and her attorney, A.J. Bosman. Cody tells a horrific story of discrimination by her former agency (Painted Post Village Police Department, New York) that resulted in her coerced resignation. The ensuing EEOC complaint and court battle (that is still active) will surprise you, but not as much as what her agency and police chief did to her for trying to expose pornography being viewed on a work computer during work hours. There is a call to action at the end of this video. Individuals mentioned in the story are Chief Donald Yost, Chief Robert Halm, Mayor Edward "Sandy" Franklin and Officer Todd Kimmey.
