Cop Reportedly Suspended Four Times for Racist Comments Must be Fired

Target: Tony Grootens, Jacksonville Chief of Police

Goal: Fire officer who has allegedly been suspended four times for racist social media posts.

Police lieutenant Trudy Callahan reportedly made racist posts on social media. One of the posts included a photo of an African American man in a with the caption “it’s almost Friday so get your Hood Hammock” and “ready to chillax.” In another post, Callahan excessively uses the N-word.

Despite her racially insensitive posts, Callahan was only suspended for ten days and is now appealing her suspension. This is reported to be her fourth suspension from the force. Racism should have no place in the justice system, but it will continue to run rampant until officers like Callahan are fired or reprimanded. Demand that this lieutenant be fired for her racially insensitive behavior.


Dear Mr. Grootens,

A police lieutenant was reportedly suspended for a measly ten days after she made multiple racist posts on social media. The N-word was also used in some of Callahan’s posts.

Despite the fact that racist behavior of any kind should never be tolerated, this is also a policy violation. We urge you to stand up to racism within your agency and help see to it that this lieutenant is fired for her blatant racist behavior.
