thefreethoughtproject.com_2016-09-30_11-24-10.png“I’m the Law Today N**ga” — Cop Fired After Using Social Media to Declare Her Racism – [thefreethoughtproject] – Predictably and understandably, the Internet exploded in fury over the image — alerting the mayor of McKeesport to the inexcusable post. “As Mayor of McKeesport, I feel compelled to publicly address an issue that has come to my attention via social media. A past social media post surfaced a few hours ago involving a recently hired part-time police officer, who has been training as a probationary employee for just a few weeks. This post displays a degree of conduct and character that is far different from what I would expect from an officer in this city,” Mayor Michael Cherepko wrote on the City of McKeesport Facebook page. “It is absolutely unacceptable. Without hesitation, my office and the police chief’s office immediately concluded that this officer’s actions will not be tolerated in the City of McKeesport. She has been relieved of her duties, and her employment has been terminated.”
