Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis issued a statement Saturday denouncing the city’s police union for a series of posts on social media overnight.

The Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police lodge took to Twitter on Friday night and posted a photo of actor Leonardo DiCaprio making a toast, with overlain text saying, “Here’s to the Baltimore 6 defense team, the FOP and Detective Taylor.” The FOP also posted a tweet Saturday morning with an image of City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby with the text, “The Wolf That Lurks.” That image was first used as a cover of a New York police union magazine last October, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The posts come in the days after a Baltimore judge acquitted Officer Caesar Goodson facing the most serious charges in the death of Freddie Gray, delivering a broad rebuke of a case that he said lacked evidence.
