Florida Officer Suspended For Racist Social Media Posts

Lt. Trudy Callahan of the Jacksonville County Sheriff’s Office was suspended for 10 days following an investigation that she posted a racist photo on Instagram. “Yeah its almost Friday so get your Hood Hammock,” Callahan wrote in a caption on a photo of a black man lying on a chain fence that resembles a hammock. “Ready to chillax” she added. There were also two other photos in question where Callahan engaged in a dialogue on photos about African Americans; she even responded to a comment calling a black man the ‘N word’. Reportedly, the twenty year veteran has been the subject of a dozen of complaints during her time on the force and this latest incident is her fourth suspension. In her defense, Callahan says the social media posts were “taken out of context” and “twisted and turned to fit people’s agendas”. NY Daily News
