Officer Fired Over "Zoo Animals" Snapchat

A Detroit police officer is out of a job over a very poor in taste Snapchat. 

Officer Sean Bostwick posted a Snapchat photo of himself in uniform with the caption "Another night to Rangel(sic) up these zoo animals". 

Many saw a racist undertone to Bostwick’s post as the officer is white and according to census estimates, Detroit is 80 percent black.

Police Chief James Craig called the post "highly disturbing" and said many officers had called him to express their disgust.   

Craig said Bostwick had been on the force for less than 18 months and was still on a probationary period when he was terminated.
