Anti-Obama Facebook Rant Could Cost NY Cop His Badge

Facebook rants don’t pay.

Facebook can get you in a lot of trouble, whether your settings are private or not. One New York City area police officer who is now on administrative leave for his activities there is learning that the hard way. Officer Peter Burns of Pleasantville is accused of posting a racist, threatening rant about President Barack Obama on his Facebook page under the name “Coon Trapper.” Burns allegedly wrote:

The fact that he (Obama) is still alive bewilders me. Go die in a shallow grave you Muslim commie.

Now, personally, I think words like that should earn the good officer a visit from the Secret Service. He did, after all, tell the President to “go die.” But, at the very least, it should cost him his badge. For now, though, he is on administrative leave and relieved of his duties, pending an Internal Affairs investigation, according to Police Chief Richard Love. The Facebook page, while set to private, was obtained by a reporter for The Journal News and shown to Love on Monday. It has not been revealed how the reporter got access to the page. Love says that his department does not currently have a policy on social media. However, this incident could spark a change. He called Burns’ alleged comments “despicable,” “totally unacceptable” and said that they “will not be tolerated.”

Personally, I don’t think anything less than a firing will do here. If this guy is this racist, how can he serve an area as diverse as the greater New York City area — or any area, for that matter — fairly? Someone needs to look up his police record and see just what his ratio of minority arrests to white arrests is. I bet there is a story to be told there as well. In the mean time, strip him of his badge. I wish there were more that could be done, but, for now, do what you can.

2. Considering New York's racist "stop and frisk" policy ...

I wonder how many of his fellow officers share his sick wish.

I doubt he is an anomaly.

10. I wonder how many non-white people he's frisked, myself.

And what the ratio is of caucasian suspects to non-caucasian ones.

I really think this ratio should be part and parcel of an officer's official file, if they are to keep that horrid policy.

3. Hmm...

 

I would not only fire that asshole, but charge him with hate speech ( if that's possible ) and put him on possible domestic terrorist list.

Calling POTUS racist names and telling him to go die is way too extreme. Don't forget the dude is armed. I would take his guns away too, and ban him from ever getting another legally.


What a hateful piece of shit..

40. But the sad part is ...

 

this guy will spend the rest off his days, blaming President Obama (and probably liberals, in general) for "ruining" his life. He will spend zero moments, reflecting on how what follows in his life flows from his actions, i.e., HIS writing that post was the cause of his ruining his own life.

Everyone is to blame for ruining his life Except himself and how he got to that zombie induced coma.

4. Given P'villes recent history, I'm surprised they didn't give the jerk a promotion

It's a cute town--Will Shortz lives there!--but their police force is scary (and I'm a cop's sister--these dudes played bagpipes with my bro).

12. Did everyone miss the fact that 'Coon is racist?

 

'Coon is just as bad as the n-word in the South. The fact is, he may as well have made his FB name Ni---r Trapper. If he had created that user name here on DU he'd have been PPR'd for it.

I bet I can guess what his stop-and-frisk stats look like.

Caught that.

And I'll bet a bunch of defense attorneys that had clients arrested by this guy did too.

But I would love to see the look on the Black judge's face when this guy says, "What? My name referred to hunting raccoons?!?"

. . .and use LinkedIn strictly for business/professional purposes. (Hey, I'm not totally in the dark about social media.)

Why give a potential employer or business client a free excuse to either not hire you or do business with you?? That stuff is permanent.

39. How does a 'commie' raise the NYSE index from 8,000 to 16,000 with his policies?

 

I really don't get the Marxist, Commie statements since it is obvious that Obama is a hardcore capitalist! Are people so full of hate and piss, that they cannot see what is obviously true and what is patently false?

I hope the guy loses his job, sounds like he has a career waiting for him in the KKK.
