A Pennsylvania police officer is out of a job after posting a photo of herself in uniform on Snapchat and adding a caption using the N-word.
Melissa Adamson calls the photo a stupid mistake. (obviously)
She went on to say, ““Everyone that knows me knows I don’t have a racist bone in my body. And people who don’t know me, I can understand why it was misconstrued to where it looks racist. But like I said, everyone who knows me knows I’m not racist. I don’t want this to affect how I do my job.”
In response to the photo, Mayor Michael Cherepko posted on Facebook, “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.”
