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.
