13 Philadelphia police officers to be fired over racist Facebook posts

Thirteen officers in Philadelphia are being fired following an investigation into racist and offensive Facebook posts. Commissioner Richard Ross said the officers are on a 30-day suspension with intent to dismiss. Ross said the posts included ’anti-Islamic’ ones, ’references to African-Americans as thugs’, ’encouragement of police brutality’, and ’homophobic memes’.

"The Facebook posts, made by more than 300 active officers, contained derogatory, racist, and misogynistic comments. Some posts encouraged violence, prompting the firings. Mayor Jim Kenney said that damage runs deep." Too bad the same rules don't apply here.
