Moreover, the police had to simultaneously contend with the racist slurs made by a man in uniform named Ariel Shapiro, who wrote the following on his Facebook wall: "Too bad the Arab whore didn't die."
The post was brought to the attention of the police, who easily located the man. At the annual press conference, Police Commissioner Danino noted that measures have already been taken regarding this issue.
"A police officer made racist remarks that do not honor the Israel Police and do not honor citizens. We currently notified that the officer's police service will be terminated and he will return to the IDF," said Danino.
"We will weed these such people out. We dismissed 88 officers this year, this may be a new record, but I would like to say that these were people who were not right for the organization. They are causing damage to 30,000 other police officers."
