The city's police commissioner, Richard Ross, says 13 cops will be cut for making racist or offensive Facebook posts--an unprecedented wave of terminations resulting from a scandal that has attracted national attention.

The department had placed 72 officers on administrative leave in June after a nonprofit group published the results of a two-year review of personal Facebook posts or comments from cops in Philadelphia and seven other U.S. police departments.
