BPD officials condemn racist video featuring patrolman
By Dan Atkinson
Police are investigating a video containing racist remarks that allegedly involves a Hub patrolman that “couldn’t have come at a worse time,” according to a leader of the city’s minority officers’ union.
The video, a copy of which was obtained by the Herald, is in the style of a humorous movie trailer, describing a police officer and a “dog with a limp” as partners “in the fight between good and evil.” The video names the officer and shows photos and brief video clips of him – including an image of him in a uniform and photos of BPD sawhorses – and also crudely makes fun of the cop.
At the conclusion, text in the video reads “This summer, black people have met their match.”
