Leominster Police Officer Fired for Calling Carl Crawford a “Monday”

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?

  1. He should be fired. He is obviously a racist and he cannot possibly try to convince anyone otherwise. There is no place for someone like him in law enforcement

  2. If you surveyed everyone in the crowd and asked them if being called “Monday” was derogatory, you would get at least 90% blank stares. At least the cop will get severance and unemployment.

  5. Really? I’m a racist? All I’m saying is that nobody knows what that means, including the author of this article until he looked it up on Urban Dictionary. Also, Crawford himself said after the game with Portland that a fan yelled stuff at him. When you’re a baseball player, you’re trained to ignore thousands of people yelling your name, but Crawford felt the need to bring up the incident. I don’t think Crawford should have mentioned it at all in the first place.

  6. Cmon use your head. The cop knew what it meant and that’s all that counts. So if he yelled out a racial slur in Spanish and nobody understood what he said does that make it ok? Of course not. And FYI Crawford knew what it meant. It’s been an unwritten word amongst some police officers for minorities for years. Sorry you didn’t know that.
    And sorry for calling you a racist. It’s just makes me sick every time a see a cop abuse his powers. He makes all good cops look bad

  7. The cop is not racist. Funny how everyone is so quick to judge him but no one knows him or went to the hearing to see that the city had absolutely no proof of anything. He will sue the city and he will win. He is a good cop and a good person.
