NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A Kentucky corrections officer has been suspended after laughing at a racist Facebook post and sharing it with his friends.
Derek Hale, a sergeant for Louisville Metro Corrections, had reposted a meme on his personal page with a white officer seemingly discussing police brutality against black men and boys.

The Louisville Urban League criticized both Hale and the meme itself.
