The news is out: [The commanding officer of the NYPD’s workplace discrimination office has been relieved of his command and placed on modified duty as the department investigates allegations that he posted a slew of racist, sexist and homophobic comments on a message board for police officers, the department confirmed to CBS News. The investigation comes after the New York City Council’s Oversight and Investigations Division released a report linking Deputy Inspector James Kobel to vulgar posts spanning more than a year.
The report alleges that Kobel is the person behind the screen name “Clouseau,” which posted more than 500 messages since July 2019 on the online message board “Law Enforcement Rant.”
In the posts cited in the report, Clouseau repeatedly used vulgar and offensive language to describe public officials and members of the public, including Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark and Representative Ilhan Omar. In one post, he called former president Barack Obama a “Muslim savage.”
He also targeted Eric Garner, a Black man who died in New York in 2014 after an officer put him in a chokehold, with multiple racist posts about him and his family.]
A good cop is one who hasn’t been caught yet.
