  1. What about free speech???
    When an officer uses brutality against a person of color, they get promoted but when they excersize their free speech, they are fired. When a threat is made towards President Trump, they become an instant hero but if the same exact comment is made about a democrat, they are fired immediately. Hypocrites. PC run amok.

  2. Shame on the department. Whatever happened to the freedom to of speech as prescribed in the very first ammendment? They should sue to get their jobs back at the very least and for the defamation of their character.
