Good Cop Under Fire For Speaking Out Against Racist Police Officers

A photo of one of the good guys was posted by a Pittsburgh group known as Fight Back PGH. The group Tweeted the photograph of Pittsburgh Police Chief Cameron McLay with one of the group’s banners.

The sign is causing quiet a stir, as it read: “I resolve to challenge racism @ work #EndWhiteSilence.”

Now, the Fraternal Order of Police President Howard McQuillan told local KDKA reporters that “The chief is calling us racists. He believes the Pittsburgh Police Department is racist. This has angered a lot of officers.”

But Chief McLay fired back against the allegations, saying “I was hired to restore the legitimacy of the police department. I did not seek these young activists out. I was stopping for coffee at First Night. Their message is not anti-anybody. It is simply a call for awareness. The photo was a great, spontaneous moment in time. Please join dialogue for community healing.”

But Mayor William Peduto says he still supports Chief McLay.

Contact the Mayor and thank him for supporting one of the good guys.
