An anti-cop racist poster hangs in the school with the full approval of the Principal stating “students need to be able to express their feelings” and calling the poster an “expression of free speech”. Compare and contrast this example to a Georgia Teacher who was suspended for writing “all lives matter” on a facebook post.
NEW YORK POST – A city high-school principal allowed a racially charged, anti-police poster to hang in the hallway — even after the December execution of two officers, The Post has learned.
The sign was made by a student at Frederick Douglass Academy in The Bronx — among several posters protesting the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner that were put up in early December.
“We need justice for Mike Brown and Eric Garner. We can’t let these whites win. Let’s fight for what’s right, because if we don’t, no one will,” reads the poster, which was signed by the student.
NYPD school-safety agents from the 42nd Precinct were stunned when they spotted the hostile message while walking the fourth-floor hallway shortly after the Dec. 20 assassinations of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, sources said.
A principal noticed the agents zeroing in on the poster and stopped to ask, “Do you have a problem with that?” according to a source.
“No, we were just admiring the artwork,” one officer said sarcastically.
They complained to the school’s safety director, who forwarded a photo of the poster to a Department of Education supervisor.
The principal called the agents’ boss at the 42nd Precinct station house, telling him the poster is a freedom-of-speech matter and that she got a “racist vibe” from the officers, the sources said.
On Tuesday, she amped up her efforts to get the agents to back off, setting up a meeting with the head of the 42nd Precinct. (read more)
