Left-wing activist wants to replace ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ with Lennon’s ‘Imagine’

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Three days before retiring as the Rapid City Police Chief, Karl Jegeris took the time to meet with a citizen who wants to defund the department he’s overseen for the past six years.

“I’ve agreed to listen to her,” the 47-year-old said recently at his office. “And I will share some of my thoughts with her and show some of the work that we’ve been doing that is very proactive to decriminalize our efforts.”

Jegeris isn’t leaving law enforcement due to the recent nationwide protests about policing, but the meeting represents his passion for serving his community - the value that drove him toward law enforcement and his new career in social services.
