HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) – Three suburban New York city police officers suspended over posts they made on Facebook want a judge to limit an investigation into their online habits.

Harrison Detectives Richard Light and Frank Massaro and police officer Michael DiLauria filed suit this week, saying the town’s inquiry is an invasion of privacy.

Attorney Donald Feerick says the officers worry the town will want to look at all of the officers’ posts on the Facebook social networking Web site.

The officers were suspended with pay in February after officials say they found racist and sexist comments on the sites. One detective reportedly made watermelon and fried chicken jokes about President Barack Obama, while other posts made sexual jokes about the town’s 74-year-old mayor.
