Police chief dismisses officer following racist comments

A police officer who posted racist remarks on his Facebook page regarding the alleged attack of an Arab woman in Jerusalem on Monday will be discharged, Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino said on Wednesday.


"We will not abide any case where officers' show any disrespect to citizens or to the Israel Police. We will weed them out," he said, adding that the officer will be transferred back to the IDF. (Gilad Morag,  Noam Dvir)
