A tweet by a radical, left-wing student group at the University of Texas that featured a photo of a police officer on fire has sparked widespread criticism for advocating violence against law enforcement.  

The tweet – sent out by the Autonomous Student Network (ASN) at UT-Austin – states “Instead of #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay how about #LawEnforcementIncinerationDay” next to a photo of a French police officer engulfed in flames after being hit by a Molotov cocktail during last year’s May Day protests.

ASN-Austin describes itself as a pro-liberation, anti-capitalist “outlet for radical student activism,” Fox News reports.
