Virginia Firefighter Placed on Leave After Anti-Cop Facebook Comments

August 07, 2015  | 

A Fairfax County, Va., firefighter has been placed on paid administrative leave as the department investigates a comment that appeared on his Facebook account about wanting to put police officers in “body bags” after recent police shootings, reports the Washington Post.

Khalil B. Abdul-Rasheed came under scrutiny this week, after the comments were posted Saturday on a Facebook page called “Filming Cops.” The comments came in response to another user’s comments about a video of police shooting.

“We have [to] start putting them in body bags . . . stop filming and rally to your fellow citizen. Pull the cops off, lay on the individual, form a circle or throw punches. Do something . . . They can’t massacre a mob,” the post read in part.

It was not clear if Rasheed made the post himself.

Thanks hoser! I can imagine if a cop said some hosers need to get off their ass and do something or be in body bags. I have never had issues with Firefighter, all have been an asset to me anytime I needed them, This guy is obviously an exception. I attribute this more to his being a B.m rather then a F/F. Some people of color just have a chip on their shoulder and are racist.

That message stinks of Terrorist statements. Look out Fairfax County you may have a homegrown terrorist among you.

That's it give him a paid vacation for threats on LOE. I say fire him for professional misconduct.
