A police officer in a St. Louis suburb has been suspended over a series of Facebook posts, insulting Ferguson protesters, who have been rallying in condemnation of the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer.
The police department in Glendale, Missouri, announced in a Friday statement that it had suspended police officer, Matthew Pappert, due to “several very concerning and inappropriate posts on his personal Facebook page.”
“I’m sick of these protesters,” one of the posts says. “You are a burden on society and a blight on the community.” The screenshots of an apparently deactivated account have been obtained by The Daily Caller.
“These protesters should have been put down like a rabid dog the first night,” Pappert says in another post.
