NYPD investigating officers' Facebook comments
The New York Times said it obtained a copy of postings made on the Facebook page, titled "No More West Indian Day Detail"
NEW YORK CITY — The New York City Police Department says it will investigate a report officers made racist and inflammatory comments on Facebook about West Indian parade-goers.
The New York Times reports that in the postings, people participating in the September parade in Brooklyn were described as "animals" and "savages." One posting suggested, "Drop a bomb on them and wipe them all out" while another read, "Let them kill each other."
