NOLA Cop Suspended For Trayvon Martin Post

Source: CBS News

NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans police officer placed on desk duty following a deadly shooting incident was suspended for posting a comment on a local TV station’s website calling Trayvon Martin a thug who deserved to die.

Jason Giroir identified himself as a New Orleans Police Department employee when he posted a comment over the weekend on the website in response to an article about a rally supporting Martin. He wrote, “Act like a thug die like one!”

Martin, 17, was unarmed when he was fatally shot last month in Sanford, Fla., by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

The Times-Picayune reports that when another commenter called Giroir’s comments racist, Giroir responded: “Eddie come on down to our town with a ‘Hoodie’ and you can join Martin in HELL and talk about your racist stories!:-P”

  • what the f@#k???

  • Luvshrtnme

    act like an idiot, get fired like an ass lol STUPID lol

  • Some people just refuse to be decent and he’s on the police force. He is supposed to protect and serve but yet he’s ready to kill. It’s time for us to clean house and get rid of these people, forget the desk jobs and suspended with pay, they know who the crazies are.

  • Act like a thug, die like one. That’s a pre-mindset I wouldn’t want on the police force ever. He’s liable for anything he does at this point to be even remotely discriminatory. He should be fired, his mentality is condemning and isn’t one that can be change, this is how he feels. He’s not objective therefore can never assess any given situation with objectivity. Thus all cases he participated in would need a thorough probe. Act like thug, die like one. Act like a pre-judgmental prick and be outcast and called out as one. So shall it be done.  To reword it wouldn’t have been his true sentiments on the subject, it’s raw, human mind at his nastiest, you’ll never get a more honest opinion. He just couldn’t refrain from casting his self-righteous condemnation, it’s indicative of his true intentions, what’s truly on his mind fearing no persecution at the time. Too bad he didn’t know he wasn’t untouchable, the fool.
