UPDATE: The officer has been fired, pending an appeal.
Leominster Police Officer John Perreault has been suspended for five days with pay for aiming a racial slur at Carl Crawford during a minor league game in Manchester, New Hampshire. He faces another disciplinary hearing next week.
Perreault allegedly called Crawford a “Monday” at least twice before the game earlier this month. Crawford clearly knew what Perreault meant, and Perreault likely knew what he was saying.
If you don’t know what that means, you’re not alone. Thankfully, Urban Dictionary has the answer.
“I don’t know how I feel about (Perreault’s suspension). I’m just disappointed it had to happen and to come out and find he’s a police officer; it’s one of those things you just have to just let go,” Crawford said.
What punishment do you think Perreault should face?
