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.
