‘Salute to Hitler the great:’ Officer of the Year probed for shocking statements
(JERUSALEM POST) — Cleveland’s 2019 “Officer of the Year” has reportedly fallen under scrutiny by the Cleveland Police Department after it was revealed on Thursday that a Twitter account allegedly connected to him posted a series of racist and antisemitic tweets.
“Let me salute to Hitler the great,” read a meme featuring an image of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and tweeted by an account alleged by Canary Mission to be owned by Cleveland Police Ismail Quran. “He said ‘I would have killed all the Jews of the world, but I kept some to show the world why I killed them.”
