You misunderstand what happened.
After a few questionable events unfolded which left people with a sour mouth taste, they left. Simple as that. Nowhere was it said that it was an OOC power move, people just simply didn't wanna be there, they hold no obligation to be in an environment they don't like as this is a videogame and not a full-time job.
Most of the people that left want the best for the sheriff's department so leaving the faction was a hard decision for most, if you firmly believe that people left just to get the former Executive Office booted out you'd be dead wrong and I implore you stop with the assumptions and don't clog up the thread with OOC complaints and passive-aggressiveness towards people following events which were out of their hands.
