The Boston Police Department has placed a cop on administrative leave after high school students said he called them “monkeys” and used the N-word while responding to a noise complaint at a fast food joint.
Ninth- and 10th-graders at Roxbury Prep High School also said the officer pushed them while responding to the complaint at a McDonald’s on Sept. 13, according to the Boston Globe.
The cop was identified as Officer Joseph Lynch, a 16-year veteran of the force assigned to District E-18 in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
Boston police Sgt. John Boyle, a police spokesman, confirmed to the Daily News that Lynch was placed on leave and that the department’s internal affairs division was investigating. Boyle said the department would not be commenting further, because it is an ongoing investigation.
Police Commissioner William Gross and Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins dropped by the two-decade old charter school to listen to students Thursday, the Globe reported.
