A former police officer in Connecticut who reported finding a letter disparaging black officers has been arrested on charges he planted the note himself.
Clive Higgins was arrested Wednesday on a charge of second-degree falsely reporting an incident.
Higgins reported finding the threatening letter Feb. 9 inside his mailbox at the Bridgeport police department. Higgins, who is black, said the note written on police letterhead made him fear for his life and showed there was discrimination inside the department.
Another hoax exposed. It seems the nation is being filled with false claims of hate crimes against blacks and muslims.
