For the first time, three officers who were fired by the town of Medley after a traffic accident that was captured on surveillance tape are speaking out, saying the town of Medley unfairly and wrongly terminated them.

“I don’t think it’s fair,” said former Officer Freddy Romero, 35, who was fired Sept. 27th along with former Sgt. George Perez, 51, and Lt. Joseph Olmedo, 44.

Perez had been with the department for 22 years. Olmedo, who had served as “Acting Chief,” had been with the department for 21 years.

In a CBS4 Exclusive, Romero told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench, “My rights of due process were violated. I have my family and my house that I am worried about about. And I loved my job. This was not fair but the truth will prevail. Justice will win out.”
