NYPD anti-discrimination chief allegedly made racist, antisemitic remarks


The New York Police Department official charged with combating discrimination in the department posted hundreds of racist, antisemitic, misogynist, and homophobic slurs on a message board. The New York City Council oversight division identified “Clouseau,” who posts frequently on “The Rant”, a message board where law enforcement officials vent anonymously, as Deputy Inspector James Kobel, who is the commander of the Equal Employment Opportunity Division. The report was authored by Councilor Ritchie Torres, a Democrat who was this week elected to Congress. Kobel denied the charge to the New York Times but has been relieved of his job pending the completion of an Internal Affairs Bureau investigation, the New York Times reported on Thursday.
