Professionalism – Tattoos Sept. 2, 2016. Citizen took photo of Philly cop and circulated it on Twitter.
The Philadelphia Police Department has launched an internal review after a photograph of one its officers with a tattoo resembling a Nazi symbol began circulating online this week. The photograph appears to show a member of the department’s bike patrol sporting a tattoo on his left forearm of a spread-winged eagle beneath the word “Fatherland.” It was uploaded Wednesday to Facebook on Wednesday by a user who said the snapshot was taken at a protest event during the Democratic National Convention in July and has since been shared widely on social media.
