‘I’m the Law Today N***a,’ Police Officer Fired after Posting Racial Slur on Snapchat

A female police officer in Pennsylvania, Melissa Adamson, has  lost her job after she posted a Snapchat selfie showing herself in uniform — and using a racial slur.

The snap showed Melissa , a part-time cop in McKeesport, wearing a uniform and sunglasses in a car, with the caption, “I’m the law today n—a.”  Once her bosses got wind of the snapchat photo, they fired her and she also resigned from another part-time police officer job in Versailles.
She called the photo “a stupid mistake” — and insisted she’s not a racist.

“Everyone that knows me knows I don’t have a racist bone in my body,” she said


“And people who don’t know me, I can understand why it was misconstrued to where it looks racist. But like I said, everyone who knows me knows I’m not racist. I don’t want this to affect how I do my job.”

Melissa posted the photo on Facebook and that’s how her superiors got to see the it.

“This post displays a degree of conduct and character that is far different from what I would expect from an officer in this city,” Mayor Michael Cherepko wrote in a Facebook post.

It is absolutely unacceptable. Without hesitation, my office and the police chief’s office immediately concluded that this officer’s actions will not be tolerated in the City of McKeesport.”
