Former Pitcairn Police Department officer Melissa Adamson has just been fired after she posted a photo on Snapchat in her uniform using the ‘N’ word. The photo was taken months ago but it was just bought to the attention of her superiors.

The photo read,

“I’m the law today n***a.”

After Adamson was fired, she also resigned from her part time police job. She states it was a innocent mistake and she is not a racist. Adamson says,

“Everyone that knows me knows I don’t have a racist bone in my body and people who don’t know me, I can understand why it was misconstrued to where it looks racist. But like I said, everyone who knows me knows I’m not racist. I don’t want this to affect how I do my job​.”

The McKeesport Mayor’s Office posted a statement to Facebook saying,

As Mayor of the City of McKeesport, I feel compelled to publicly address an issue that has come to my attention via social media. A past social media post surfaced just a few hours ago involving a recently hired part-time police officer, who has been in training as a probationary employee for just a few weeks. This post displays a degree of conduct and character that is far different from what I would expect from an officer in this city. It is absolutely unacceptable. Without hesitation, my office and the police chief’s office immediately concluded that this officer’s actions will not be tolerated in the City of McKeesport. She has been relieved of her duties, and her employment has been terminated.
