PHILADELPHIA - A source tells FOX 29 the number of Philadelphia police officers taken off the streets after alleged racist and inappropriate social media posts went from more than 10 officers last week to well above 50.
The officers in question were part of a national investigation by the database group Plain View Project. Their report found more than 300 posts by former and current Philadelphia officers that are at times racist and appear to incite violence.
The NAACP wants answers.
“They're not only bold but more tragic than that, they feel that they're in an environment where they have a comfort level now that they can do this kind of thing on a public platform, and there are no consequences, and that's where we're calling on the high command,” explained Minister Rodney Muhammad, Philadelphia’s NAACP president.
Philadelphia police say they will also be implementing anti-bias training.
