CPI Security CEO Ken Gill Tells Black People to Focus on Black on Black Crime and Not Protesting Against Police Brutality; Panthers and Hornets Immediately Cut Ties

In these times people’s true colors are being revealed at a faster pace than ever before, even if that means your an CEO for one the biggest home security groups in the world. Yes CPI that’s you.

CEO Ken Gill recently responded to Jorge Millares (leader of the Queen City Unity Organization) who has been apart of demonstrations against the brutal killings and unfair treatment of African Americans by law enforcement.

Gill emailed Millares stating,

“Please spend your time in a more productive way,” Gill told Millares in an email, which Millares posted on Facebook. “A better use of time, would be to focus on the black on black crime and senseless killing of our young men by other young men.”

“Have a great day, Ken Gill,”

Millares was just raising awareness and promoting equality amongst all people, and this racially insensitive email sent by the CEO of all people was just one blemish of what America has endured in the last 400 years.

Of course, once Millares who shared this on his social media page, the public’s reception was not heartwarming at all. They called for an immediate boycott of all CPI products, including Charlotte’s own NFL franchise, The Carolina Panthers and Michael Jordan and Charlotte Hornets.

Since then CEO of CPI issued a fake nonauthentic apology,
Let me say that CPI, and I personally, stand against racism and discrimination of any kind, and we are actively supporting solutions like the new CMPD de-escalation training facility that will bring positive change to our community. I fully support the call for racial equality and justice in our community and our country,” Gill said. “We (at CPI) take a great deal of pride in our inclusive culture and in protecting the families and diverse communities we serve. I apologize if my comments did not reflect those values.”
The damage had been done by this point, with numerous of clients revealing on twitter and other platforms, they will be removing their services from CPI security.
