I'm sure this is gonna make around 45 percent of America happy, but the Bedford Police Union president is in apology mode after criticism for the mock arrest of someone wearing a Hillary Clinton mask and an orange prison uniform. Medford Police Department Union President Harold MacGilveray, can be seen in the photo up above on the right. The union also posted a photo of a group of cops grabbing ass with a guy in a Trump mask. How do you think these cops are voting?

From the Boston Globe:

The president of a Medford police union said he used “poor judgment” when he posed for a photograph with a person dressed in a Hillary Clinton orange prison-inspired costume that went viral on social media.

Harold MacGilvray of the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association said the photo was taken spontaneously during a community festival on Saturday afternoon and was “absolutely not” taken to make a political statement.

I think everyone here understands this, but just in case not: So far as I know, every state and municipality has statutes forbidding public servants (who are paid by the public) from doing anything that even appears to be promoting a political candidate while on the clock and/or in uniform. Those are very good laws and important to democracy. I think the police officers were a bit careless to pose for the photos and wise to publish a statement making clear that there was no political intent behind them.

Point taken but for anybody to assume political intent ...well you know what happens when we ass-u-me.

It is the pro-Hillary folks who are raising a shit-storm, or course! Not one word of dissent is 'allowed' by them. I didn't find the picture of the cops grabbing 'Trump's butt' though, I wonder if the Hillary-bots also expressed objections to that one? If it exists of course. I suspect... NOT!

do you have proof that the pro-hillary folks are the ones raising a shit storm? because i have actually not found any shit storm. i have been going to a bunch of different websites looking for any negative criticism, i couldnt find any. the only thing the police seem to be apologizing for is the fact that a photo opportunity with some people on halloween and the police became political. and the only reason i could find that this became political is because pro-trump folk are retweeting it, so maybe the pro-hillary folk are just trying to i dont know defend the one they chose to support against a wave of retweets. also, im pretty sure who ever wrote this meant grab assing, not grabbing ass. grab assing means screwing around at work.

Oh God with all the fake shit Trump supporters believing on the internet. this doesn't surprise me at all. I'm still surprised they haven't proved Clinton is a alien from Mars yet.

i dont think the cops are apologizing for taking the picture, i think they are apologizing because of the amount of trump supporters who are retweeting the photo. its just, i cant seem to find any negative criticisms towards the cops for their behaviour. and the cops are saying they didnt want this to become political, it was just a joke, some cops taking some pictures with some people in costumes. but trump supporters have decided to use the picture as a way to make fun of hillary, which in turn makes the medford police department a part of something political.
