Detroit Police Officer Fired for Calling Residents ‘Zoo Animals’

“The Detroit Police Department confirmed on Monday that it had fired an officer and opened an investigation into his conduct after a picture he posted to Snapchat with a racially-charged message went viral.

Sean Bostwick, 27, who worked in the 12th Precinct, posted a photo of himself in his uniform with the caption “Another night to Rangel (sic) up these zoo animals.” He posted the photo directly before starting his shift on Sunday.”

Now that this racist pig is going to have a lot of free time on his hands, I suggest he take an adult school class in remedial English. Rangel?

Precinct 12 is on the city`s northwest side bordering the infamous Eight Mile Road, and it`s one of the most dangerous precincts.

What precinct 12 needs are police officers who have a mindset of protecting and serving the community, and that starts by viewing the residents as hardworking people who are trapped in an area where there are no jobs and little hope for the future.

Bostwick considered anyone roaming the streets at night an animal that needed to be wrangled, i.e arrested on any pretext and jailed.

Fortunately, Bostwick was a new hire and still on probation, therefore the police department could summarily fire him.
