Officer Who Threatened To ‘F*cking Kill’ Ferguson Protesters Has Been Taken Off Duty
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.
