Pacific Grove fires police officer who disparaged Black Lives Matter


PACIFIC GROVE — A Pacific Grove police officer was fired for behavior that began with posting right-wing extremist decals on his private car and ended with the officer posting obscenity laden comments against Black Lives Matter on a right-wing social media platform.

In a video-taped news release, Pacific Grove Police Chief Cathy Madalone said the officer is no longer employed by the city of Pacific Grove, but that legal constraints prevented her from making any further comment.
