State Police Bumper Sticker: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” (Updated)

By David Bloch | 08/25/2014

Update: According to the Boston Globe:

“State Police determined that a sticker reading “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” slapped onto a trooper’s cruiser in late August was an act of vandalism. 

The trooper assigned to the cruiser saw the sticker and pulled it off right away, according to David Procopio, a spokesman for the State Police. The trooper than notified his supervisor.

No action was taken against the trooper and authorities determined it was vandalism committed by someone not connected to the job, said Procopio tonight.”

Chris Kantos confronted the Massachusetts State Police on Twitter after seeing the concerning bumper sticker on the back of a State Police vehicle in Boston on Sunday. They then proceeded to accuse Kantos of photoshopping the sticker on.
