A black Cincinnati police officer is under investigation over a Facebook post that said white officers “are looking for a reason to kill a black man.”
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Officer Freddie Vincent posted the comments earlier this month after the fatal shootings of black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota. The newspaper says the post has been deleted.
Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac says the department is aware of the post and is reviewing it in relation to its social media policies.
Vincent alleged harassment and discrimination at the hands of white supervisors in a lawsuit filed against the city last year. The case was settled in April.
Vincent’s attorney, Christopher Wiest, says his client plans to hold a news conference on the Facebook post Friday.

MS Clinton seems to believe our country should be divided.
It is hard to believe that she cares nothing for our police officers!
Hillary Clinton seems to pander to black extremist groups and wants to stir up
even more hatred and hate speech. Shame on her!!!
She has been bought off, so to speak, by these groups and hopes to win by any
appeasement techniques she deems necessary. She really cares for no one but herself.
But, then again, she is one of the lawless ones who is above the laws that
govern us mortals. I hope she and Obama will fall out of power soon.
Vote for Trump!!! He loves the police and loves America!! He will make America proud!
