BRIDGEPORT ó Earl King Jr., sentenced to federal prison in 2001 for bagging crack cocaine for the Russell and Adrian Peeler drug gang, will remain on the city's firefighter hiring list.

The approval followed pleas from Donald Day, a retired city fire captain and director of the Northeast Region of the International Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters, and Ron Mackey, president of the Firebirds Society, an organization of black city firefighters.
Supporters called King's involvement with the Peeler gang a youthful indiscretion. Since his release, he has earned a college degree and held two city jobs, one working with children.
Opponents of the commission's decision included the city's Board of Fire Commissioners, provisional Fire Chief Brian Rooney and Personnel Director Ralph Jacobs.
