Post Philadelphia PD Says No To Undercover Brother 
PHILADELPHIA Police in Philadelphia say a white officer who came to work with cornrows was ordered by a black superior to get a haircut because the braids violated department standards.

The Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday that Officer Thomas Strain was put on desk duty this month because of the braids, even though the paper reported dozens of black officers wear cornrows.

Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."

Vanore said officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.

Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.

Same story with photo of officer. Wonder how many women have been fired from PPD for wearing their hair braided?
