A Ferguson Police officer who threatened to kill protesters while aiming a rifle at them has been taken off duty after a complaint from the Missouri ACLU, the organization announced on Wednesday.

The ACLU tweeted, “SUCCESS! In response to our letter, officer who threatened to kill #Ferguson protesters has been removed from duty.”


Just before his removal from the Ferguson Police department,  the ACLU’s Vanita Gupta tweeted “Highway patrol called. They identified the cop. He will no longer be in ferguson.”

The Atlantic reports:

In a letter sent Wednesday, the ACLU called on the Missouri Highway Patrol to “identify and remove” an officer featured in the video below. In the video, the officer points a gun protesters and says he’ll “fucking kill” one man. When asked what his name is, he replies “Go fuck yourself.” While Ferguson protests have had “tense moments,” the ACLU argues that the officer’s behavior was “from start to finish wholly unacceptable.”

The officer’s response to protesters earned him the nickname on Twitter, “Officer Go Fuck Yourself” because of this dialogue which was caught on camera:

One could say that Officer Go F*ck Yourself, has been f*cked.

    So he won’t be in Ferguson. Where are they sending him? The white suburbs?

      Take away his gun and assign him to pick up road kill for a year maybe that will calm him down.

        His career IS roadkill!

    • Tammy Minton Haley August 20th, 2014 at 6:05 pm

      he’s a state trooper–he simply goes back to his trooper post and trooper duties on Missouri’s interstates, and answering calls from farming communities that have no police force of their own…

      that’s what troopers do…

      troopers are different than city cops, or sheriffs that work in jails–they have a highly militarized culture to start with…or, at least, what i’ve been witness to…

    I hope he will be a desk job until his counseling is completed and he quits stomping his feet!

    This man needs to be fired and has no business handling a weapon ever again.

  4. Carlos M. Morales August 20th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    That SOB should be fired..

    • Tammy Minton Haley August 20th, 2014 at 10:03 pm

      he has been “relieved of duty, indefinitely”…

  5. NoInfo ToShare August 20th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    Cops are NEVER, if rarely ever fired. What do think police “protective” leagues are for?

    • Tammy Minton Haley August 20th, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      this one was, apparently…”relieved of duty, indefinitely”

  6. Abe August 20th, 2014 at 7:47 pm

    Please get all the facts correct. He is from the St. Ann police dept. and has been suspended indefinitely by the department. He is NOT a member of the MO Highway Patrol or the Ferguson PD.

      Please enlighten us to where you get your facts.

      • Abe August 20th, 2014 at 8:59 pm

        A friend of mine who is also on the St. Ann police force.

        • Tammy Minton Haley August 20th, 2014 at 10:06 pm

          you are correct…

      Officer GO FUCK YOURSELF was impersonating a Ferguson, Missouri Officer?


  7. Epiphany August 20th, 2014 at 8:47 pm

    OH SAY IT ISN’T SO!! Officer GoFuckYourself, you screwed yourself after all. Suspended indefinitely without pay. Well, maybe he can work selling shoes or answering calls at some precinct………. bye bye.

    • Anomaly 100 August 20th, 2014 at 8:48 pm

      Hey gf!

      • Epiphany August 20th, 2014 at 9:44 pm

        This “Part II” to the original story is the best thing I’ve seen today. And I thank you for putting a smile on my face. 🙂

        • Anomaly 100 August 20th, 2014 at 11:04 pm

          Right back at ya’!

    Officer GO FUCK YOURSELF will merely reappear in his National Republican Uniform when they assemble to march in protest of the ‘moving -but not fast enough’ mobile protesters that are not allowed to assemble as the heavily armed WHITE RACIST TERRORIST THUGS in Nevada, USA, because the US Constitution is a state optional document applied to different US Citizens in different manners – WHITE RACIST (Republicans) receiving the first and foremost MOST FAVORED status of the US Government. A well known and very well publicized F A C T that has caught the attention of the US Government’s Asian adversaries. Hopefully enough Military Aide to the ‘lesser’ races Anglo-Americans will offset the blatant disparity and our Black Anglo-Americans can have as successful an outcome in Ferguson, Missouri as the heavily armed WHITE RACIST TERRORIST THUG Anglo-Americans did in Nevada? The trick appears to be to have as many locked and loaded firearms pointed at Government Officials (or more – from all over the country) as they do the protesters. Then when Officers like GO FUCK YOURSELF (IN) Ferguson, Missouri threaten to ‘fucking kill you’ -protesters can have their guns pointed at them sos they will know they will be ‘fucking killed’ also. As strange as it may sound, it worked EXTREMELY WELL IN NEVADA, without one single protester being arrested – and you can even lay in a prone shooting position without having to move along at selected variable speeds for the moment!!!

    Officer GO FUCK YOURSELF is representative of about 9 out of 10 cops I know and have had dealings with. These are the guys who, in high school, got knocked around and carried that butt-hurt into adulthood and decided they could be a cop and get a gun and badge and come back and make up for all they had to take. He’s a bully, and you know how you have to handle a bully. Well, I do, anyway.
