First Amendment Anyone?
- The New Orleans police department has suspended an officer under who is currently under investigation for a fatal police-involved shooting for posting that Trayvon Martin "acted like a thug" and deserved to "die like one" in a comment on a news website.
So the New Orleans PD suspended an officer for making a comment on a case that isn't even in their jurisdiction? On a news site that isn't in any way associated with the New Orleans PD?
And as more and more of the truth comes out (the "victim" dealt drugs, the "victim" was suspended for ten days for drugs, the "victim" had a twitter account where people congratulated him for beating up a bus driver, the "victim" had gang tattoos, the "victim" had gold grilles at 17 with no job, the "victim" was the aggressor in the confrontation, the "victim's" mother is trademarking his name, etc.) the New Orleans PD brass is in the unenviable position of having violated an officer's First Amendment rights for simply telling the truth.Things that make you go "Hmmmmm."
