Earlier today, the
Phoenix posted a letter on our website from James Carnell, the
racially insensitive editor of the Boston Police Patrolmen's
Association (BPPA) newsletter, the Pax Centurion. As expected,
Carnell has no apologies for anyone who he offended, nor does he
respond to the numerous charges of corruption that this publication
and others have leveled at his union.
week after the Phoenix featured the Boston Police Patrolmen's
Association (BPPA) and its racist newsletter on our cover, the union
responded with a letter on its web site – not just to us, but to
the general “media fury” that's exploded since the release of
their May-June issue. It is not an apology letter.
