SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — A highway patrolman who was photographed in a handmade Ku Klux Klan costume while on duty the day before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday has been suspended without pay, authorities said.

A fellow trooper who transmitted the cell-phone photo of white-masked lawman has been demoted.
Franklin and Trooper Eric Wlodarsky told an investigator that the picture was taken as a joke and was modeled on a television skit by comedian Dave Chappelle.

Craig Franklin, a 12-year veteran of the Ohio Highway Patrol, is pictured in the January 20 photo with a white cone on his head, white paper mask and a white cloth covering his shoulders, according to a highway patrol report.

Franklin is otherwise in trooper uniform. A handgun holster, a radio normally issued by the patrol and other police equipment can be seen in the photo, the report said.

Franklin and Trooper Eric Wlodarsky told an investigator that the picture was taken as a joke and was modeled on a television skit by comedian Dave Chappelle.

Highway patrol officials began an investigation after the patrol’s Administrative Investigative Unit received an anonymous letter that included two photographs of Franklin in the outfit, an interoffice memo said.

Franklin, Wlodarsky, another trooper and a dispatcher discussed Martin Luther King Jr. Day at their post on the day the photo was taken, the report said. The national holiday was the following day.

None of the 13 troopers assigned to the Sandusky post are black.

“Obviously, we’re extremely disappointed,” said patrol spokesman Lt. Shawn Davis. “This kind of conduct cannot and will not be tolerated.”

Following a March 24 hearing, Wlodarsky was demoted from sergeant to trooper, transferred to another post and must attend a diversity awareness class. Franklin was placed on a five-day unpaid suspension, and must take part in diversity awareness training, patrol documents showed.

A third trooper who received the picture via a text message was given a one-day suspension for failing to report the incident and forwarding the photo to a subordinate.

  1. Fucking god damn niggers, why don’t you and your silly Jewish shit bags get back to Africa cause that is where your nigger shit selves belong. In the fucking wild

  2. these racist pigs just got their jobs back with back pay. maybe they can afford better robes now. alert to all people of color, gays, catholics, and others hated by the racist white troopers in sandusky. i fear for your safety and security.

  3. leave the “Black Panthers” outta this, they never hurt anybody… on the otherhand, the KKK did and caused a lot of crazy shit back in the day. Anyone who’s not dave chappelle should’t be caught in a KKK outfit.

  4. first of all you dumb shit, anyone who expresses racial agression toward anyone is always given their share of public shame. even the black panthers. In case you don’t remember al sharpton recieved a ton of disgust from people when he spoke alongside black panthers. obviously your mind (unconcerned) is incapable of understanding things on a multiplane perspective.

  5. If they had been black & they had dressed as the ‘Black Panthers’, would there have been the same amount of media attention? Some how I unfortunately think not…
