Michigan cop fired over vast collection of racist memorabilia claims he is just a 'Dukes of Hazzard' fan

Them dukes, them dukes.

The Root:

The city's report reveals that Anderson told investigators that his love of artifacts related to the treacherous Confederacy and one of the nation's first terrorist groups, the KKK, was completely tied to his fandom of the fictional, fast-driving, fun-loving Bo and Luke Duke of Hazzard fame.

"I have a very, very large collection of The Dukes of Hazzard," Anderson told investigators, the News reports. "I have gone to their meets. They call it a Duke's Fest. It's where you go Down South and you meet in a state, all Dukes of Hazzard fans get together."

"I love The Dukes of Hazzard. That's the reason for the Confederate flags," he continued. "They mean nothing other than it was just part of that collection."
