A Jersey City police officer will be disciplined, after allegedly posting information online about possible gang retaliation after police shot and killed a man who murdered a fellow officer.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Public Safety Director James Shea said rumors of more violence crop up frequently when a police officer is shot.
“We have had, in the past, allegations of potential retaliation against police officers but that is a fairly common occurrence and we haven’t been able to attach any credence to it,” Shea said.
In this case, the mayor said a Jersey City police officer posted a false notice online saying Bloods gang members were targeting police in connection with the shooting that killed cop killer Lawrence Campbell, 27.
The officer will be disciplined, Fulop said.
