    I would barely even be aware she exists except for Facebook memes posted by Trumpies.

    Pelosi doesn’t even seem to be a big fan of hers or the other three. Yet they seem to trigger the snowflakes a lot.

If the local agency doesn't want its employees expressing the opinion that a US Representative should be shot, then firing is their right. If I were their supervisor and it got back to me what they said, I'd fire them. And what I thought of the particular Representative wouldn't matter at all. It's just immoderate, uncalled-for inflammatory speech, which we've had too much of, from the local level to the top dog...

    A Law Enforcement Officer
    said that a congresswoman should be shot. He should never ever ever ever work as a law enforcement office anywhere ever again in any way, shape, or form. Or maybe you want a nutjob showing at your house in the middle of the night ready to shoot whomever he has a disagreement with.

    As for the other part - employment - had this been a simple political statement I'd be inclined to mostly agree with you, but that is not the case at all. He was advocating violence against a sitting congresswoman. There is a yuuuuuuuge difference between political statement and advocating violence against an elected official.

    For the love of all that is good in the world, we do not need any LEO's with such a temperament as that displayed by this one. We have too many as it is. I'm glad he revealed himself so he could get fired before he killed someone himself.

    I'm not questioning the officer being fired, but he should've been more aware of that potential consequence with how viral everything goes today, regardless of the circumstances surrounding comment.

    Just wish the same was going on with both sides. Should the policeman firing stand? Yes.

    Then we disagree strongly. Saying someone should be killed goes way beyond something crass. That we're having this discussion shows where this country has sunk...

    If he had said Trump deserves a round (and not one at the golf course) he should be fired.

    It’s an opinion, plain and simple. Nowhere does he state he would help, nor not attempt to stop an attempted attack on any sitting government official. He really thinks she doesn’t need to be in office.

    Once again partisan lines ......

    "This vile idiot needs a round... and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,"

    Not crass. Not a political statement. And coming from an officer of the law, very disconcerting.

    He knew before signing up for employment that he would be held to a higher standard. He had a choice. He made it.

    Personal responsibility.
