In cities all across America, violence against police officers is experiencing a steep rise, often at protests led by BLM including the shooting of 12 cops in Dallas.  A Detroit detective went to his personal Facebook page and criticized the BLM movement which is responsible for the bulk of the violence.  The Facebook post by Detroit Detective Nathan Weekley has led to his demotion by Detroit Police Chief James Craig, who announced an investigation into the matter.  Ironically, Weekley’s demotion was announced on the same day that four BLM supporters were arrested for calling  for the killing police officers, specifically white police officers.

From Breitbart News:

The officer’s post was highlighted by the left-wing Michigan National Action Network revealing to liberal supporters of Black Lives Matter that the officer called the BLM movement “terrorists” and said that the only way the people would understand how important police are is to stop going to work.

“For the first time in my nearly 17 years as a law enforcement officer,” Detective Weekley wrote, “I contemplated calling into work in response to the outrageous act perpetrated against my brothers. It seems like the only response that will demonstrate our importance to society as a whole. The only racists here are the piece of (expletive) Black Lives Matter terrorists and their supporters.”

Chief Craig told the media that he took “very quick action” against Detective Weekely, but insisted that the officer was still entitled to his due process.

“We have to let that run,” Chief Craig said. “That’s by contract and certainly out of fairness. We are aware that he posted and he has since removed the post and we recognize that it is still trending. We are concerned as a organization because it does tend to undermine all of the good work that I just described that we’re doing in the community.”

Meanwhile, Weekley has been stripped of his 1st Amendment rights.
