BREAKING: Over 70 Philadelphia Police Officers Placed on Leave

Over 70 police officers have been placed on leave by the Philadelphia Police Department, their commissioner announced Wednesday.

The officers were reportedly suspended due to several social media posts that were made by officers, with many of the comments calling for violence against Muslims, protestors, immigrants, and those accused of crimes. The department has not stated how long the leaves of absence will be for.

The investigation into officers’ conduct began after the group, the Plain View Project, complied racists and offensive comments on social media apparently posted by hundreds of police officers across the country.
