A Police officer in Olympia, Washington is being investigated for posing with armed Americans protecting businesses from gutter trash looters.
The chief of the Olympia, Washington police department says an internal investigation is taking place after an officer posed for a picture with several members of the group Three Percent of Washington early Friday morning. The group of about a dozen gun owners were standing guard outside of a local gun store after the owner requested “armed members of the community to make a presence in his parking lot” over concerns that his store would be targeted by burglars.
Oh NO! Not Three Percenters, they believe in the second amendment! EWWWW. I mean look at the picture
This image, of course triggers leftist bed wetters, and sadly the police chief in Olympia is more political hack than police officer, so, cue the weasel words
“I am disappointed and frustrated that the photo was taken at all, but particularly at this sensitive time in our city and nation,” Jelcick wrote. “I regret that this photo may damage the trust our community places in us that we have worked so hard to build. I apologize for the pain this has caused our community. It is imperative that Olympia Police Officers uphold our values, remain neutral to the message at public demonstrations, and do not engage in or promote conduct that will bring discredit to themselves, the Department or the City.”
Meanwhile Mayor Cheryl Selby was quick to jump on the Weasel Express
“After a long week for my community, I’m discouraged that I have to make a post like this,” the mayor wrote. “I have confirmed a photo of an Olympia police officer posing with a group of armed militia members, some of whom are displaying white power signs. I find this behavior to be abhorrent and unequivocally unacceptable.
“Our council/manager form of government restricts me from discussing disciplinary measures, though my council and I are demanding a thorough investigation,” she wrote. “As the picture clearly illustrates in no uncertain terms, a culture change within the police department and city government is clearly needed.
“We hear our community demanding it and we must rise to meet this challenge. The presence of an armed militia is not what we want to see in Olympia, and we are asking those people to stay home to ensure that peaceful protest can continue in our city.”
She ended her post with “BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!!!”
Certainly giving a shout out to the Marxists of BLM is not unprofessional right Mayor McMoron? If she looked at the photo, she would see the Black member of the group front and center. The group also includes two Hispanic men, and a Jewish member. The officer is, clearly, a woman. I believe they call that diversity. Of course, women, Jews, Blacks and Hispanic people are not really genuine unless they are leftists so………... As to the White Power hand gesture, that is a sign that members of Three Percenters use, sooooooo.
Sadly, this is our new normal where many political leaders are concerned. looters and rioters excused while law enforcement is vilified and Americans who exercise the right of self-defense are portrayed as evil.
