Gretna Police Department 13 year veteran police officer Charlie Rispoli deserves to lose his job, but probably will not, after he not so coyly advocates for the shooting of a sitting member of Congress on his Facebook page after he got worked up by an obviously fake news report (above).

Obvious to anyone but a RW idiot I should say…

“A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “vile idiot” who “needs a round, and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve….

…Charlie Rispoli, who has been on the Gretna police force since 2005, could not be reached for comment, but Chief Arthur Lawson called the post “disturbing” when it was shown to him Friday…

…Rispoli’s comment referred to a fake news story he posted to his personal Facebook page on Thursday at 1:51 p.m. The story’s headline attributed a fabricated quote to Ocasio-Cortez saying, “We pay soldiers too much.” The photo on the post is marked as “satire” and it had been labeled “false” by the website snopes.com on Wednesday, but Rispoli appeared to be upset by it.”

Disturbing? Who the F does the Chief think he is…Susan Collins?

”I will tell you this: This will not go unchecked,” Lawson said. “I’m not going to take this lightly and this will be dealt with on our end. It’s not something we want someone that’s affiliated with our department to make these types of statements. That’s not going to happen.”

Lawson said he does not think the comment constitutes an actual threat, but it appears to violate the department’s social media policy, which he said all officers have read and signed.”

Ah, there’s the out.

So this will be dealt with on their end (no need for the Secret Service to get involved) because it is not a threat and HR will definitely be taking it up… looks like Rispoli might need to burn some of his vacay time.

Tell me Chief Lawson if I was known to be carrying a gun and posted on my Facebook page (if I had one) that you needed to be shot would that constitute a threat?

Rispoli needs to be fired pronto and if you don’t do it you should be next.

  1. While I personally love satire (and would have some difficulty staying sane without it), I have to admit that not that many Americans are good at it. As George S Kaufman pointed out. “Satire is what closes on Saturday night.”

  2. I would like to know what disciplinary action is going to be taken about an officer of the law, Charles Rispoli, calling for the killing/shooting of a member of the United States senate. If this is his attitude toward acceptable “justice” for those who don’t share his views–HOW SAFE ARE YOUR CITIZENS FROM THIS UNBALANCED INDIVIDUAL? He should not be in law enforcement, and should definitely not be carrying a gun. I come from a long line of law enforcement in my family, and THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

  3. What this scumbag needs is a pink slip. There’s a reason why Louisana ranks right up there with Mississippi in illiteracy, anti-intellectualism, ignorance,and intolerance. In 50 yrs La. like its neighbor Fla. will be mostly underwater.

  4. YOUR TALKING LOUISIANA. BIGOTED CORRUPTION EVERYWHERE. COPS WORKING WITH LANDLORD STOLE $200,000+ RETAIL FURNITURE STORE IN METAIRIE IN 1982. DOUBT IT HAS CHANGED MUCH. WAS AGGRAVATED BY HOW MUCH THE Blacks were passified. As they YES SIRED ME it was like yes masser. Been a member of the NAACP since 1968. Can’t stand bigots.

  5. I always figured that eventually people would stop posting horrible things on Facebook, and figure out that this makes their worst behavior public. However, it seems I over-estimate humanity’s common sense and under-estimate our stupidity, because it seems like we will continue to see this sort of thing.
