The police department in Medford, Massachusetts, is getting heat over their officers posing with trick-or-treaters around town this weekend, as they posted pictures to their Facebook page that caused some backlash.
The Medford Police Patrolmen’s Associate Facebook page displayed pictures of their officers holding a person in a “Hillary for Prison” costume, complete with an orange jumpsuit, handcuffs and Clinton mask. The officers even posed as if they were hauling Hillary Clinton off to jail for crimes that she should have already been prosecuted for. You can tell that they’re enjoying themselves.
“Look who MPD grabbed at the Fall Festival in Haines Square today…”
What should have been a harmless photo of police engaging the community on a festive Halloween weekend turned into the usual situation involving someone being offended, the police having to take the pictures down and apologize. But, to be fair to the patrolmen, they also posed for a picture of a man in a Donald Trump costume, although something tells me it wasn’t Trump fans who caused the “outrage”.
The Hillary for Prison costume was perfect timing, as the FBI has revealed that over 650k emails have been recovered from Human Abedin and her husband’s computer during his pedophilia investigation. Could we be seeing the actual Hillary Clinton in an orange jumpsuit in the not too distant future?
Happy Halloween Hillary Clinton!
CBS Medford reports:
MEDFORD (CBS) — A post on the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association Facebook page caused controversy online over the weekend.
The post showed Medford Police officers at the Fall Festival in Haines Square Saturday posing with a person in a Hillary Clinton mask and prison clothes. The officers were smiling and holding the person in handcuffs as if they were arresting them.
The caption on the photo read, “Look who MPD grabbed at the Fall Festival in Haines Square today…”
In another photo, the officers posed with someone in a Donald Trump mask, with the caption, “Making America GREAT again in West Medford Square!!”
Harry MacGilvray, president of the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association, admitted poor judgement in making the post.
“These were Halloween costumes. It was meant totally as a joke. I apologize if this offended anyone in any way,” MacGilvray said in a statement. “I never expected this sort of reaction. It was poor judgment on my part.”
The posts have since been removed.
