Baton Rouge Police Officer Suspended Over Text Message

A text message described as inappropriate and appalling could cost a police officer his job.

Blaine Dupuy was suspended last week and the Baton Rouge Police Department is conducting an internal investigation. A source tells The Advocate Dupuy, who is white, texted to other officers an image of a chimp in reference to protesters of the Alton Sterling shooting.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome said Monday she agrees with disciplinary action, including termination.
