A police officer in Kansas City, Mo. is facing internal review after he reportedly posted an inflammatory message on Facebook about the slain Ferguson, Mo. teen whose death has led to mounting chaos.
Televison station KCTV reported on Monday that Kansas City Police Department Officer Marc Catron posted a picture to his Facebook page along with this caption: “I’m sure young Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”
The photo depicted a black man with a wad of money in his mouth, pointing a gun at the camera. But the photo wasn’t of Brown at all. It was of a man in Oregon accused of murder.
Catron also reportedly posted about the violence that has erupted in Ferguson since the fatal police shooting. “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither,” Catron wrote, according to the television station.
"Facing internal review"? This officer needs to be fired, immediately. Someone who is clearly a racist has no business policing a community.
Wait… all people of color aren’t the same person? Are you positive?
REAL TALK IF THERES A FIRE AT MY SCHOOL I AM NOT WALKING IN AN ORDERLY FASHION AND THEN GETTING MY NAME MARKED OFF IM RUNNING FOR MY LIFE AND IM TAKING MY GOD DAMN BAG WITH ME
one time there was an unscheduled fire alarm and i just happened to have my bag on my shoulder when it went off so my teacher made me go back into what, to his knowledge, was a burning building so i could put my bag back
Part of getting my teaching certification was watching a dated video on fire safety. Immediately after, the trainer shut it off and said, in the case of a real fire, we were to get out of the building immediately and without regard to “any brats” who linger behind, along with the kids who have a survival mechanism. After all, if we died in a fire because of some kid who doesn’t want to listen, we can’t possibly save the children who stand of chance of surviving.
Real talk: Your teachers are told to abandon you in the case of an actual fire if you are being obnoxious.
