Miami Beach Police Sent Hundreds of Racist, Sexist E-mails

Miami, May 20 (RHC)-- In Florida, Miami Beach police have issued new policies after acknowledging 16 officers sent more than 200 racist, sexist, homophobic and pornographic e-mails, which may have jeopardized dozens of cases.

The e-mails include an image of a gameboard labeled "Black Monopoly," where every square reads "Go to Jail," and a photo of a bruised woman with the caption: "Domestic violence:

Because sometimes, you have to tell her more than once."

Two of those involved were high-ranking officials; one has retired, the second was fired. A new policy requires police to report e-mail misuse by fellow officers.
