A Massachusetts police officer is being investigated by his department after he posted an absolutely disgusting response to the death of Heather Heyer, who was murdered in Charlottesville, Virginia when a white supremacist drove his car through a crowd of anti-racism protesters.
Officer Conrad Lariviere saw a story on Facebook about the tragedy that took place in Virginia on Saturday after white supremacists marched through the streets with torches. His response is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with law enforcement in America today.
Hahahaha love this, maybe people shouldn’t block road ways.”
Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri said he was made aware of Lariviere’s comment on Sunday and immediately opened an internal investigation of the matter.
Naturally, Lariviere insists that he is really “good man who made a stupid comment,” not a raging bigot who supports white supremacists committing acts of domestic terrorism.
Democratic Mayor Domenic Sarno spoke out against Lariviere and his abhorrent response to the tragedy that has rocked the entire nation.
There is no place for this in our society, let alone from a Springfield Police Officer.”
White supremacists descended on the Virginia town Friday night to protest the removal of a Confederate statue. They marched through the streets carrying tiki torches and giving Nazi salutes while chanting “we will not be replaced” and “white lives matter.”
On Saturday, an Ohio man who had attended the white supremacist march the night before drove through a crowd of people who were there to protest against the Nazis and their hateful message. One woman was killed and 19 others were injured.
No one should condone this kind of violence, which clearly fits the definition of terrorism even if conservatives don’t want to admit it. For a police officer to openly support the murder of peaceful protesters who are exercising their constitutional rights by standing up against Nazis and the KKK is terrifying. We can only hope he loses his job and isn’t just given a paid vacation.
