The Lohud News has reported a story about a cop who posted a racist rant against President Barack Obama. Pleasantville police officer Peter Burns, 35, could lose his job after posting the following anti-Obama post on Facebook:
“The fact that he (Obama) is still alive bewilders me. “ He then referred to the president as a Muslim commie.
On December 11, Burns posted his tirade against the president under the name “Coon Trapper,” a racist reference used to denigrate blacks. Richard Love, the Pleasantville Police Chief, said he would investigate the incident after he saw an image of the rant. On Tuesday, authorities placed Burns on paid administrative leave and suspended his police powers.
Chief Love said the disgraceful comments won’t be tolerated. He will consider appropriate disciplinary action based on an impending internal affairs investigation. Ultimately, the derogatory comments could cost Burns his job. Officer Burns has been with the department since 2004 and earns an annual salary of $98,959.00.
