“Police departments and police unions across the nation should make clear that the role of police is to protect and serve their communities, and draw a hard line by imposing zero-tolerance policies … departments can’t continue to make excuses when officers express hateful views or skirt their responsibility to improve policing culture. Mocking minority groups on Facebook or in a union newsletter isn’t harmless venting or a matter of free speech; it’s a clear indicator that an officer is unfit for the job.” 

  • “[Police officers] have the responsibility to maintain the trust of the community. If they exercise their right to free speech but say things that would destroy the trust with the community, they can be terminated.”  ~ Former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis talks to WBZ 4 CBS Boston about officers who may have participated in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.
