Two Memphis police officers have been suspended, without pay, after posting a racist photo on Snapchat.
The Snapchat photo shows a man pointing a gun at an emoji of a black man running. It was posted the same night as the fatal shootings of five Dallas officers, and it came days after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile died at the hands of law enforcement, reports KMTV.
“The image is disgusting and will not be tolerated” said Interim Memphis Police Department Director Mike Rallings, about the situation. “We are certainly responsible for the decisions we make, and we are held to a higher standard.”
