Teana Walsh an assistant prosecutor in Wayne County, Michigan has caused disconcert after writing on Facebook that cops should simply shoot all anti cop protesters. The Detroit prosecutor would also add she considered the protesters in Baltimore ‘disgusting.’
##Update: Walsh has momentarily just resigned her post.
Brief pause. Count slowly as your career implodes ….
Wrote the lawyer: ‘So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see large swarms of people throwing bricks, etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults … 15 in the hospital already.
‘Solution. Simple. Shoot ’em. Period. End of discussion.
‘I don’t care what causes the protestors to turn violent…what the “they did it because” reason is… no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.’
Interestingly the post would garner 15 people liking Walsh’s post.
That said presumably sensing she may have crossed into no man’s land (what do you think kids?) Walsh would soon delete her post but not before an enraged local attorney shared the woman’s post.
Guess how that went down?
The outrage prompted Walsh’s bosses to issue a statement defending her, claiming the post was ‘completely out of character’.
Or was it?
Told the released statement: ‘APA Teana Walsh is known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families. Her post was up on line briefly and she immediately took it down.
‘The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know.’
And then there were these comments on the web that made me wonder. See what you think?
Yeah. Totally can’t see why people wouldn’t trust prosecutors (like this guy) to hold cops accountable for excessive force..
The comments below are shameful and made by people completely ignorant of Constitutional law and the history of our country. So it’s completely fine for our law enforcement to act like “rabid dogs”, murdering African Americans time and time again, but African Americans can’t rise up against their oppression? Complete and total hypocrisy. It is so easy for white people to make racist comments like this. One of the things that set America apart from the country it fought its freedom from is something called “due process”, something none of you seem to be familiar with.
Sounds like a great solution to me. If people want to act like animals, they should be treated appropriately. This is what you do to rabid dogs.
