Pittsburgh Police Chief Challenge on Racism

Like I’ve stated before, love it when Americans stick up for each other.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh’s new police chief is being criticized by a police union president for being photographed on New Year’s Eve holding a sign that says, “I resolve to challenge racism @ work,” and bearing a Twitter hash tag that says, “# end white silence.”

Fraternal Order of Police president Howard McQuillan says the sign paints city police, especially white officers, as racists, and the chief’s photo violates a policy governing police participation in social media.

Chief Cameron McLay, who was hired in September, defended his holding the sign that someone brought to the city’s annual First Night celebration. In an email to the union, McLay, who is white, apologized if he offended officers but said it is a “statistical fact” that policing efforts have “a disparate impact on communities of color.”

Again mixing it up; Liberal video and Conservative link.
