Inspector Clueless: NYPD Commander Janice Holmes Rightly Catches Hell for Tweeting #BlackLivesMatter hashtag

NY Post reports a positive gesture by an NYPD precinct commander went sideways when she used the hashtag #blacklivesmatter in an official tweet — and she deleted it amid furious pushback.

Deputy Inspector Janice Holmes of the 100th Precinct in Rockaway, Queens, tweeted a photo of late African-American heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson from her NYPD account Thursday afternoon.
