Borst resigned, and Hunnewell was terminated Friday following a brief internal investigation, Fruitland Park Police Chief Terry Isaacs said.

Wow, what a surprise.
And it took the feds to find out.
I wonder how many of their co workers knew and did nothing?
Or maybe the initial investigation was internal.

Trayvon Martin wore a "Hood" over his head. And Community Agitators threated lives of Innocent people. So people like the New Black Panthers are accepted well along with La Raza with the AG Witholder and O. But a few LEO's put on "White Hoods" and all of a sudden it's McCarthyism or a Witch-hunt! I respect people of all races, creeds, and social strata. What's the big deal about Skin Pigment. The same people going after the "KKK" don't mind Bussing Illegal Aliens to spread Disease, Scarcity, and create chaos. The BIGGER crime isn't those Rogue LEOs with White Hoodies. It's the Rouge Government that Ignores the Will of the People. And DOESN'T OBEY LAWS! That's more a danger to Society than ignorant people in a White Man's Club! Meanwhile Obama & Holder support Brown Skinned Militants, and Black Power Militants and the Media does nothing about it!

No matter how anyone spins this no LEO should be a member of the KKK, or any organization of a simlar nature. Lenny. You're still a moron. This is a disgusting organization and I don't believe for a moment any officer knew about this.

Lenny, you ARE such a moron, I agree with the thought that a professional police officer should not be in the KKK,Nazi Party, Communist party, Black Pathers, LA RAZA any organization that uses Race as a criteria for membership, White, Black, Brown or otherwise. Fraternal organizations based upon ETHNIC heritage are different and an important part of keeping ones heritage alive, the other organizations are foolish, racist and dangerous. OH Lenny, I assume that you are a Democrat, remember Sen Byrd, the ex KKK Grand Wizard? You probably voted for him, as did his Democrat friends in W. VA for forty years!. So don't come done on just cops, OK?

Capt. Crunch @ 7/16/2014 10:00 AM

@ Concerned Citizen, I agree with you 100%.

IMO, I would think Lenny's freedom of speech and welcome-ness would wear out with the management here. What say you?

If the officers did not show bias in their police work, they can belong to any group they want to. There are muslim officers and TSA employers (not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists are muslims), border patrol agents with family members back home in Mexico they aid and abet...sorry, but unless they did something wrong at work, they should have stayed on the job.
