Philly Fires 5 Police Officers, 3 For Racial Slurs!

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has fired 5 police officers, 3 for using racial slurs and 2 for misconduct. Officer William Thrasher, who was the target of an article published in a Temple University newspaper in which he referred to black people as 'animals", was one of the officers fired. That article is listed here and pretty damning. Kudos to Mr. Ramsey for doing the right thing.

Love it! I'm not against police. I support them but not those who are disrespectful to anybody. These firings send a message that the police will treat others with respect, thugs included.
