NYPD official fired over hateful posts after internal trial

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department’s former workplace harassment czar has been fired over allegations he posted hateful messages online. Police Commissioner Dermot Shea’s decision on Wednesday to fire Deputy Inspector James Kobel came about three weeks after Kobel submitted retirement paperwork in an attempt to avoid a departmental disciplinary proceeding. At an internal disciplinary trial last month, Kobel was found to have violated multiple department rules and regulations. Kobel did not attend the trial. A message seeking comment was left with Kobel’s union. Kobel was accused of posting attacks on Black and Jewish people, women, and members of the LGBTQ community on an anonymous message board.last_img
