STL Cop Subject Of Internal Affairs Probe After Newspaper Prints Op-Ed

Available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com

And the hits just keep on comin.’ In late August a STL police officer wrote a FB post of a most violent day. The piece started with a 16YO kid who shot at a cop. The offender caught without any further incidents. Then he was off to a riot at a football scrimmage. This resulted in a number of folks being shot. He talks of holding a kids hand who begs him not to let him die. He didn’t but an 8 YO did.

All this while listening to the final roll call of an Illinois State Trooper who was killed in East STL serving a search warrant.

Let the cops do their jobs. Stop the unnecessary harassment!

The officer, in his post, pleas for assistance from the state and local elected officials. Even the Mayor of STL gave his post a like.

He finishes with an impassioned plea…”I’m tired of seeing dead babies!”

Portions of his post were used for an op-ed item by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He’s charged with some silly violation of department policy. The lawyers from the police association and the department are now involved.

Being a cop in Americas most violent city is tough. But then the cops are tough. Let them do what needs to be done without these mindless charges and investigations by their own department.

This officer was merely posting about his experiences when the world seemed like it’s coming unglued. Bless them all!!

  1. This is what happens when you have spineless leaders in the Police Dept., and liberal city officials. The Police Chief should be ashamed of himself for not standing up for his officers and the residents of his city.

      1. Chief’s a pretty good guy…but he’s a puppet. Might as well have a cardboard cutout. As for riding in a beat car for a shift or two well, forget about that. Always willing and able to criticize and critique but how much street time??? Gonna bet, not much.
