72 Police in Philadelphia Pulled off the Street for Racist Facebook Posts Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross is expecting to discipline "several dozen" of the officers. It is possible that some officers will be fired. An independent law firm is reviewing more than 3,100 Facebook posts that were catalogued in a database called the Plain View Project. Created by Injustice Watch, the project has catalogued social media posts of police officers and former police officers from all over the country. The prioritized posts are ones "clearly advocating violence or death against any protected class such as ethnicity, national origin, sex, religion and race.” Commissioner Ross said he was "disgusted by many of the posts" attributed to the 72 officers in question. He said the department "will work tirelessly to repair" its reputation "with neighborhoods and individual groups that we struggle to work with."
