A Chicopee, Mass., man who officials say made a threatening comment towards police on a social media page will be charged.

Police say Charles Dirosa wrote, “Put Wings On Pigs” on his Facebook page Monday, two days after NYPD officers were ambushed and murdered in Brooklyn by a man who used the same phrase.

Followers of the Chicopee Police Department Facebook page alerted officials to the post and detectives investigated what they called a disturbing comment. 

Chicopee police say Dirosa will be summonsed to court for threatening to commit a crime.

This is good news but why didn't they prosecute the 100 protesters in NYC chanting in the streets, wanting Police Dead now. Attorney Holder should be arrested for malfeasance in office. Al Sharpton should be arrested for inciting illegal protests in private property stores ( Mall of America) Every LEO in the nation should be sure never to vote for the Progressives..this is what happens when the far left radicals are in charge.

The sick individual who posted these inflammatory words not only revealed his own agreement with the shooter in N.Y., but he mayl incite others with similar murderous ideas to come forward to commit an identical copy cat crime. I say Great Job, Chicopee Police Department!!

Not sure this will fly but it doesn't hurt to try.

I understand that certain race hustlers, media faces, drug dealers, criminals, rapists, murderers, child abusers and molesters, anarchists, misinformed youth, and various politicians do not like law enforcement officers or anything they do.

I too have issues with various figures of "authority", the power they have, and how they abuse it. I do not believe the gross majority of peace officers have any ill intention when they get up everyday to do the job.

I understand how those who hate the current model of law enforcement want something other than what exists.

What I have not heard is just exactly what they would like to see replace that which currently exists.

Due to the fact that I am not as intelligent as those who hate the average law enforcement officer; would it be possible for any cop hater who may read this to please explain what your idea is to replace the current system? I hear the complaints, what are the alternative ideas?
