Philadelphias Top Cop Apologizes for Wearing Shirt that Mocked Rodney King Beating



Philadelphia’s interim police commissioner has apologized for wearing a T-shirt in the 1990s that mocked the notorious Los Angeles police beating of Rodney King, saying she’s “profoundly sorry.”

The photo, from 1994, shows Christine M. Coulter, who is white, wearing a shirt that read: “L.A.P.D We Treat You Like a King,” a pointed slogan stemming from the 1991 videotaped beating of King by LAPD cops, whose acquittals sparked riots a year later.

An anonymous source sent the photo to the Philadelphia Inquirer in late August. Coulter, the first female commissioner of the 6,500-member department, said during a city council hearing Tuesday that wearing it was a “careless decision,” the Inquirer reports.

“I should have known,” Coulter said, referencing how the shirt may have been interpreted. “I am profoundly sorry that anything I would’ve done could’ve caused such hurt.”

3. Thats Ridiculous

Liberals have reached Peak Stupidity

Never Apologize over something like that

When Ralph Northam wore either a Klan Hood or Blackface and the Lt Governor Raped two women and the media run interference for them

Time for the grownups to say ENOUGH
