Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.
Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.
“Racial Profiling Saves Lives”
Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.
Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.
“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.
Finally on Monday, after an ‘investigation,’ the Massachusetts State police admitted that they were at fault. They even apologized to Kantos.
Their investigation concluded that a vandal placed the sticker on the cruiser.
