WTF is wrong with these people:
A St. Louis County police officer who pushed CNN’s Don Lemon, a black television host, during live coverage of protests this week in Ferguson, Mo., has been suspended from duty after video of an hour-long racial rant against minority groups, women, liberals and politicians emerged online.
Officer Dan Page spewed the vile rhetoric during an Oath Keepers of St. Louis/St. Charles meeting in April, just months before he was tasked with keeping order among a crowd of majority black protesters in Ferguson.
Page’s first spin on live TV went horribly wrong: “Move out of the way, sir. Move!” he can be heard screaming as Lemon tries to do a live stand-up amid the crowd in broad daylight on Monday afternoon, footage from Mediaite shows.
“We’re on national television, so imagine what they’re doing to people when you don’t see it on national television, people who don’t have a voice like we do,” Lemon says as he’s pushed around.
The bizarre rant went viral after Page was on the frontlines of the Ferguson, Mo., protests in his duties as a St. Louis County police officer. thenewsurvivalist via Youtube The bizarre rant went viral after Page was on the frontlines of the Ferguson, Mo., protests in his duties as a St. Louis County police officer.
And on Friday, Page was relieved of his duties in response to his vile comments raging against hate-crime legislation, the “four sodomites on the Supreme Court,” women and Muslims.
And then there is this guy:
An officer with the Glendale Police Department was suspended following a series of inappropriate Facebook posts, police said in a news release Friday.
The officer, Matthew Pappert, allegedly made several posts criticizing Ferguson protesters and rioters.
In one post, Pappert allegedly writes, “These protesters should be put down like a rabid dog the first night.” There are reportedly five inappropriate posts.
Police said “the matter is being taken very seriously and a thorough internal investigation will be conducted to determine why the posts were made.”
Then there is this guy who was also suspended:
If you’ve followed Ferguson coverage at all this week, you’re likely aware of video showing an officer pointing his rifle directly at unarmed protestors while threatening “I will fucking kill you!” When reporters and protestors demanded he give his name and badge number, he responded with an ever-so-subtle “Go fuck yourself!”
The Missouri branch of the American Civil Liberties Union was rightfully incensed by such pitifully poor cop work that they submitted a letter to Missouri Highway Patrol demanding that Officer Go Fuck Yourself be removed from duty in Ferguson…
And that doesn’t even cover all the other police misdeeds caught on tape- the arrest of Reilly and Lowery, the cop calling protesters animals, the shitheads who gassed the Al Jazeera crew and then screwed with their cameras. The whole damned department seems rotten to the core.
It’s almost like the blah people are telling the truth about the abuse they receive every day. Clearly these are people who should be handling military weapons.
