The president of a Medford police union who posed for a photograph with a person dressed as Hillary Clinton in an orange prison suit, said he used “poor judgement” while doing so. The photograph went viral on social media.
According to the Boston Globe, Harold MacGilvray of the Medford Police Patrolmen's Association said the photo was taken on an impulse at a festival Saturday afternoon, and “absolutely not” to make a political statement.
In a mail sent to the Globe, MacGilvray said "These were Halloween costumes. I apologize if this offended anyone in any way. It was poor judgment on my part."
