Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell has apologized to the entire police force for comments in the latest issue of a monthly newsletter published by the department's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender liaison officer. The newsletter contained an excerpt from The Huffington Post that said if someone is a member of a religion that does not support "transgender identities" and paying tithes he is supporting the "slaughter of innocents." The newspaper also listed local places of worship that do support transgender identities.
