HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — “Despicable” and “disgusting”, that’s what State Troopers are calling a memo from Governor Wolf giving state workers a day off for Juneteenth.
Troopers aren’t upset with the holiday, but a sentence Wolf used in proclaiming it.
The memo from Governor Wolf giving state workers a day off for Juneteenth is 248 words. But State Police are focused on these 12. “Sadly, the continued death of African Americans at the hands of police.” He wrote it to note there’s still work to be done in achieving justice.
“For the governor to use that platform to continue to drive the false narrative that police officers are murdering racists is despicable,” President of the PA State Troopers Association, Dave Kennedy said.
