BATON ROUGE- Fired Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White wrote a scathing letter about why he is not attempting to get his job back at Baton Rouge Police.

"I will not and do not ever want to work for this administration," White wrote. The letter, White's statement about his firing and his plans to fight it, was released released late Thursday.

"There are no limits nor boundaries this administration is unwilling to cross in order to further personal vendettas," White wrote.

"I became Chief with the very clear mission of ending corruption, cronyism, crime, and making Baton Rouge a better and safer City. It is clear to me that in my attempts to accomplish these goals, I have ruffled feathers and stepped on toes."

The City of Baton Rouge did not respond to a request for comment.
