He's been around long enough to know that as an American, you have a right to an opinion, but as a cop, unfortunately you need to keep that opinion to yourself.

Too bad this idiot law enforcement officer has no common sense and now made so many good police look bad. Maybe he has not noticed how so many people hate the police nationwide, so to make these statements and threats shows you he is not one who should be a police officer. I have seen this type, butt kissers to his brass, badge heavy where he uses his badge to make him feel brave and powerful, yet take that badge away and he will be crying like a baby. These type do not belong as police nor should carry a gun. If this dept. is smart, they will fire him before he does something the dept. will regret for no or minor discipline. Police officers sort of lost their right to speak because of the kind of job they have,freedom of speech these days can be viewed unfair, racist or as hatred or nuts. If you are not a police officer then you can say much more but like politicians you have to watch what u say when u are a cop 24/7.
