MEDFORD (CBS) — A post on the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association Facebook page caused controversy online over the weekend.

The post showed Medford Police officers at the Fall Festival in Haines Square Saturday posing with a person in a Hillary Clinton mask and prison clothes. The officers were smiling and holding the person in handcuffs as if they were arresting them.

The caption on the photo read, “Look who MPD grabbed at the Fall Festival in Haines Square today…”

In another photo, the officers posed with someone in a Donald Trump mask, with the caption, “Making America GREAT again in West Medford Square!!”

Harry MacGilvray, president of the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association, admitted poor judgement in making the post.

“These were Halloween costumes.  It was meant totally as a joke. I apologize if this offended anyone in any way,” MacGilvray said in a statement. “I never expected this sort of reaction. It was poor judgment on my part.”

The posts have since been removed.

    The only thing to be upset about is that this is a joke and not for real.

    1. Enu Yashi says:

      Totally agree,and I was on her security detail in Panama. Never meet a bigger POS.

      1. Tell us about it, what was she like in Panama?

      2. David, probably like she is everywhere else: “Don’t look at me, don’t talk to me, just stay out of my way….or else!”

        Have you heard, she called Donna Brazille a brain-dead buffalo after that Matt Lauer event.

    2. Lamar Carnes says:

      No, no never apologize for you are right as right can be! Those offended are criminals and need perhaps some re–education. She is guilty as charged.

    3. David Puddy says:

      This is Awesome…. EVERYONE knows this woman should be in jail!

  2. bot1 says:

    Is this being “honest and trustworthy”? Hillary Clinton’s erasing of 33,000 e-mails with Bleachbit and smashing 13 Blackberries with a hammer are sufficient evidence of guilt in a court of law. And the 33,000 e-mails were under subpoena thus she has been guilty of obstructing justice, a felony.
    Compare Hillary’s perfidy with Nixon’s: all he did was erase 18 minutes of Rosemary Wood’s tapes and he was deemed unfit for the presidency (by his own party). The 18 minutes of tape showed that Nixon was involved in the cover-up of the DNC break-in at Watergate.
    How many of Hillary’s e-mails relate to Clinton Foundation pay-to-play conspiracies? She didn’t need 33,000 e-mails to her yoga instructor and for Chelsea’s wedding! She certainly didn’t want those e-mails made public if she had them erased with Bleach-Bit. She should never have been nominated. The Democrats don’t have the moral compass of the GOP (remember the DNC’s stealing the nomination from Bernie?).

  3. Bob Suyak says:

    Non verbal communications, says it all folks.

  4. The truth hurts! Nice job officers…..

  5. Joe Reyes says:

    Oh oh. The Dems are going to ask for the death penalty for these officers.

  6. mickrussom says:

    And the media still shields and protects this nasty hectoring criminal witch. Unreal to see this.

  7. Kelly Taylor says:

    This will be reality in about a week,

  8. I really like her orange pantsuit.

  9. Hillary has been caught-out on so many lies so far the lies are enough for a Hollywood movie. If she gains the White House we’re in for a terrible ride.

    1. If Hillary wins, might as well start up the impeachment paperwork and proceedings, as sure as shooting, they will be needed for this scandal plagued incompetent, entitled, sociopathic liar in pantsuits!

  10. Chad Miller says:

    I’m sure this made a lot of hyper-sensitive Left-Wing buttercups butt hurt.

  11. Be great if it ever happened. Obama will pardon her and she will probably still get elected. Like Bill Aires said “Guilty as sin, free as a bird. What a hell of a country.”

    1. Alvin Charles Wesley Hopefully Trump is smart enough and will wait until he’s sworn in and Barry is out of the picture and can’t offer her clemency for her crimes. I have been patient all this time so a couple of months to see her done in correctly is really no big deal for me. Patience does have a reward.

  12. Don Perry says:

    Why should they apologize for “offending” someone? I and a large number of Americans are offended by Hillary Clinton’s criminal actions, James Comey’s failure to recommend prosecution of Clinton, Loretta Lynch’s corruption of the justice system, Barack Obama’s lying and incompetence, and hypocritical Democrats not holding their own accountable by excusing every criminal and corrupt act carried out by so many within their organization. I’m more than just offended that these people, and Hillary Clinton in particular, have corrupted the system so deeply that I truly believe the United States is finished as a nation. I’m utterly furious that my country is being destroyed from within by people who vote for party rather than the rule of law. I am sick at heart that, out of over 300 citizens, Clinton and Trump are the best we have to offer. Were I a younger man, I’d be leading a new American revolution and hang every last corrupt government official, Democrat and Republican alike, from the nearest tree.

    1. Tony Ferro says:

      We tried nominating a good honest family man when we sent Romney but the idiot low-morals voters sent a community organizer to the white house instead. He even told us what he was going to do to the US and they still didn’t care, we saw what kind of friends he had (aires) and they still didn’t care, I’ll bet he could have been an ax murderer and they still wouldn’t have cared, now there is a career criminal couple ie: thief, liar,rapist,mob boss and probably murderer running for office and they still support them. I feel the evil dark ages descending upon this country and the rest of the world is watching. What a terrible example this country is setting .

  13. Her “supporters” will only double down upon hearing about the right-wing conspiracy against poor old grandma Hillary.

  14. Frank Walker says:

    These police officers are fine Americans who have my respect. It is their poor fortune to be serving in a commonwealth full of Mass holes who would support Hillary even were she found guilty of murder. These right-thinking police officers deserve better. Much better.

  15. I wish people would stop apologizing all the time. Sometimes….things….can be funny rather others are offended or not. Gee….the wussification of America continues.

  16. the folder on that laptop, is called ” Life insurance” TRUE!


  18. 45% say worse than Watergate…

    Clinton unfavorable rating hits new high…

  19. Bob Manning says:

    Nice to see the good guys in Mass are telling it right and have a sense of humor.

  20. Max Conrad says:

    I LOVE IT! My prayer is that when Hillary trots out to giver her concession speech her eyeballs will spin around in her head and she’ll have a massive brain stroke and drop dead!

  21. Jim Morrison says:

    In the 2008 Election cycle there were many hanging effigies of Sarah Palin around the country and the MSM reported that it was all in good fun.
    So have fun out there this Halloween

  22. hammerstamp says:

    Yes, get practice because one day soon…

  23. Frank Muller says:

    Soon… Word on the street is Hillary will be indicted after Trump’s inauguration.

  24. RedBird says:

    …”Harry MacGilvray, president of the Medford Police Patrolmen’s Association, admitted poor judgement in making the post.”

    Hogwash! The post was funny. Anyone remember humor?

    Poor judgment is voting for Madam Mendacity.

    Thank you, MPD for a delightful moment of levity.

  25. Tony Ferro says:

    This would be a dream come true for half the citizens of this country, I feel America is very desperately in need of seeing this justice done. we could finally move on to making America great again. Trump 2016

  26. Go team Blue! Your lives do matter!

  27. jdlredskin says:

    LOCK HER UP!!!!

  28. you mean awesome judgement

  29. Only a criminal would find it disgraceful to speak the truth.

  30. As usual, Democrats squeal and good people then apologize to shut them up.

  31. The left can’t handle the truth!

  32. Tony Johnson says:

    Don’t apologize for it! There’s nothing wrong with it and people need to get over their sensitivity issues.

  33. Jeff Oldknow says:

    Apologize Hell…Harry MacGilvray is a great American……..Im ready to put him at the DOJ so he can clean out there crooked asses

  34. Instead of being “outraged” over this, the left should be outraged because of all HRC has done. I kind of feel sorry for liberals… they allowed this viper into their bed, now they are paying the cost. No honest person can truly defend this traitorous serial-rapist enabler.

  35. It’s very telling when far-left rags like the Baltimore Sun block the word ‘thugs’ in the comments section but the word ‘pigs’ gets a pass. If it were not for infantile double standards and imbecilic selective morality the PC-Progs would have neither, but we’re not supposed to notice. Blue lives matter.

  36. Oh Oh! The DOJ, FBI & the IRS are going to be on these guys like a new suit!!

    I Love it especially in Aassachusetts!! **OORAH**!!

  37. Cato Maior says:

    I love Medford PD– but haven’t you guys learned anything from Trump? NEVER APOLOGIZE. NEVER BACK DOWN.

  38. Max McByte says:

    Picture of her when they come to take her away.

    And… they’re coming to take me away ha ha,
    They’re coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha,…

    1. That’s probably the look Donna Brazille saw when Hillary called her a brain-dead buffalo.

  39. Dave Watson says:

    Does anyone besides me, seeing the number of emails, wonder what the hell do they do all day except email???

  40. Brian Punter says:

    Put psycho granny in a jail cell to end her crime spree!

  41. Best to be prepared and rehearse for when the arrest happens. Very professional. Lock her up, boys!
