The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C. has found another officer in trouble – this time the officer was found dead.

The deceased victim was Johnny Jones, 56, whose body was discovered last Saturday in Southeast D.C. in the 2600 block of Martin Luther King Avenue. Motive and cause of his death is under investigation.

Neighbors in the area were familiar with Jones and regarded him as a protector of the neighborhood to keep it safe. Jones would park his patrol car in a parking lot to show an indication of a policeman in the area.

Jones also was under investigation with Internal Affairs. The cause was due to “inappropriate behavior.” No type of trauma was indicated when the nearly 20-year veteran of the MPD was found.

Racist Easter eggs in Henrico County

The observance of Easter is celebrated as a spiritual, religious holiday or one that is highly commercialized. Just as Santa Claus captures kids at Christmas, the Easter Bunny highlights children’s lives in the coloring of eggs, jellybeans and chocolate.

But some residents in Henrico County, Va. found their Easter less appealing for themselves and their children. Racist white supremacy egg messages were found during an egg hunt.

Henrico County is approximately two hours from Washington, D.C. WRIC 8 News (an ABC affiliate) reported the story. The news station also gave an account of Ku Klux Klan (KKK) flyers in Chesterfield last month and KKK letters being sprayed at The Links apartments in Henrico County in October 2012.

Video of the recent egg hunt is below.
