Ohio Troopers Canned for KKK Prank

Larry Phillips, president of the Ohio trooper's union, said the labor group believes that the firing was a breach of the contract reached on April 3 when the officers received their initial punishment. A grievance was filed on behlf of the pair in order to pursue arbitration, he said.

Last month in a similar episode, Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee released a report about an infamous 2007 Halloween party held by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in which ICE assistant secretary Julie Myers judged a costume contest won by a contestant wearing a prison uniform, a dreadlock wig and had his face darkened with makeup.

Myers took responsibility for what she described as an error in judgment after the contest. In addition to a public apology, she ordered that all of the photos of the event be destroyed and employees attend sensitivity training.

House Democrats have urged a deeper, independent investigation into the ICE Halloween costume party, but for now, Myers has survived the controversy — unlike the Ohio patrol officers.
