DES MOINES – The Iowa DNR has concluded an investigation into a downtown Des Moines fight in which two conservation officers intervened to break up the fracas.

The Iowa DNR reported today that the agency has concluded an internal investigation into the incident on September 20th involving two DNR Conservation Officers, determining no violation of current DNR policies. Due to concerns raised during the investigation, the Iowa DNR plans to review its policies to ensure they fully reflect the expectations of conservation officers.

The two officers, Travis Graves and Derrick Slutts, were in Des Moines September 19-20 attending a training and when they were performing job related duties, they drove upon an ongoing fight between two women on Court Avenue. The officers intervened and broke up the fight. Both women were arrested and charged.

DNR Conservation Officers are sworn state peace officers in the State of Iowa.

    Well. Just charge leticia with assault and inciting a riot later the guilt on the clearly guilty party and move on. The fact she even thought she should put hands on a white person at all is disgusting. We aren’t equal. White is better smarter more attractive and higher quality in every single way. Black people straight up just plain simply suck, are losers bad people and hate mongers. They dont deserve the same rights as human beings and that’s just a fact. Black people are worthless unless they happen to be fit skinny attractive light skinned black women. All other monkeys are useless ghetto fodder.

      What kind of a bullshit, racist post is this. I am not big on using the term racist but you sure do seem to fit the mold. I would agree that blacks seem to have a higher percentage of law breakers but to say that all are bad is just as bad as saying all Mexicans are bad because a few illegals commit crimes.It just isn’t true.

        It is called self-hate. He probably has found that his ancestry is tied to people of color and now thinks himself a lesser person when, in reality, he is a greater person. He believes, as most racists do, that his low intelligence is good.
