    He should have been fired plain and simple, brought up on charges. That what he did is considered a threat against the President of the United States.

    Whether you agree or not with the President, he is our elected President and all should show respect at least to his Title/Office if not the man himself.

    As for social media postings, this is why I'm not on Facebook, watch what I post on PL, and I'm also very careful what I write in emails or text messages as they can be forwarded...

    While I despise Obama for what he is doing to this Nation and have no problem making statements like that or others that disparage him, I am NOT an active LEO and do not represent my former Department in any way, I have been retired for over 25 yrs and don't even live in the same state. In THIS Officers case he showed extremely poor taste in his postings showing violence towards an elected Official, and not just any elected Official but the President of the United States! This cannot be tolerated, Period! As much as I dislike the POS I would NEVER suggest even in joking that he should be injuried or killed. Assassination is NOT how we do things in this Republic. His demotion and two weeks was deserved. Now he needs to take his name and photo off facebook and rebuild his reputation, if he can.
