Chattanooga’s new Police Chief Fred Fletcher was greeted during his first official week on the job with a non-traditional 21-gun salute.

“Welcome to Chattanooga!” said an unnamed resident wearing pantyhose over his head, before discharging all rounds of a Glock pistol while waving it around, as part of the unsanctioned salute.

During this particularly bloody week, with a startling total of nine gunshot victims, Fletcher worked 15-hour days without time to even unpack his gear after assuming his new role.

“If I were him, I’d be thinking, ‘What kind of crazy-ass town have I moved to?'” said resident Antonio Travers.
