    A police officer in Michigan was terminated on Thursday after a prospective homebuyer who had been touring the officer’s house posted a picture on social media of a framed Ku Klux Klan application he had seen there, spurring an internal investigation.

    Frank Peterson, the city manager of Muskegon, confirmed on Friday that the officer, Charles Anderson, had been terminated, but said a report on the inquiry conducted by the Muskegon Police Department would not be released until next week.

    The city announced on Aug. 8 that Officer Anderson, who is white and had been with the department for more than two decades, had been placed on administrative leave after he was found “in possession of certain items associated with a white supremacist group.” That announcement came one day after Rob Mathis, the prospective homebuyer, posted on Facebook the photo of the application, which is blank.

    Although details of the investigation have not been released, Jeffrey Lewis, chief of the Police Department and Muskegon’s director of public safety, told the city’s commissioners on Aug. 27, “What you saw on social media is pretty much the way it is.”

    . . .

    Mr. Mathis, 52, an Army veteran who is black, said that the picture he had posted on Facebook of the K.K.K. application had drawn hundreds of messages, some supporting what he had done and others condemning or threatening him. He also said that the police had warned him about a death threat.

    I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

    I wonder how many of his fellow officers knew of and/or shared his inclinations. More than a few, I would bet.

      Yes…. more than a few. I can extrapolate that based on the racist MFers in my very own municipality. It all starts at the top. The police have an unwritten understanding and there are good ones… It’s, “Once you clean up a police department, you can move on with cleaning up the local municipality.”

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
