Newly Hired Female Cop Fired After Posting Snapchat with Caption “I’m the Law Today Nigga”

In one of the dumbest moves a new police officer could pull off this woman decided that, while wearing her uniform, should would post a Snapchat of herself with the caption “I’m the law today nigga.”

With black communities currently having a very strained relationship with the police this obviously did not go over well for Melissa Adamson, the officer in question, and the rest of the force. Mayor Michael Cherepko soon fired Adamson once the picture went viral online only a few weeks after being hired, she worked part time as an officer in another city and had to step down from there, too.

The police department gave this statement after letting go of Adamson: “There has been a picture circulating around of an ex-female employee of the Pitcairn Police Department. As the picture alone does not constitute misconduct, it is symbolic speech and protected under the First Amendment. However, it is the content of the text in the picture which is unacceptable. The Pitcairn Police Department holds high integrity for the community we serve and this type of conduct will not be tolerated.”

Adamson attempted to defend herself. “Everyone knows that I don’t have a racist bone in my body. And people who don’t know me, I can understand why it was misconstrued to where it looks racist. But like I said, everyone who knows me, knows I’m not racist,” she said when interviewed by a local news station.

But if that were true then she wouldn’t have posted the Snapchat to begin with. If you want to make a joke on Snapchat then that’s fine in my book, but she was a police officer. An officer making that kind of joke when tensions between blacks and police are at their worse in the last two decades requires a racist bone or two. Either that or she is so stupid that she shouldn’t even be qualified to have been hired in the first place.
