Police union president apologizes for Halloween photo of Clinton ‘arrest’

Harold MacGilveray, the president of the police union in Medford, Massachusetts, came under fire for a Halloween stunt in which he posed with a person in a Halloween costume wearing a Hillary Clinton mask and dressed in a jumpsuit labeled “inmate” while wearing handcuffs.

The pictures of the Halloween stunt were reportedly taken at Haines Square Annual Fall Festival in West Medford and were posted to the Medford Police Patrolman’s Association’s Facebook page along with the message “Making America Great Again in West Medford Square!”

The pictures were removed when many took offense to them, not only because of the obvious reference to Donald Trump’s campaign slogan but because of the political statement being made by officers in uniform.

MacGilveray later apologized, telling the Boston Globe, “These were Halloween costumes. It was meant totally as a joke. I apologize if this offended anyone in any way. I never expected this sort of reaction. It was poor judgment on my part.”
