Texas Police Officer Under Investigation For Suggesting He Wants To Kill People On Welfare

A Texas police detective is under investigation by his own department after going on an angry Facebook rant about the “useless lazy turd bags” that use food stamps, later warning that he may go on a shooting spree targeting welfare recipients.
Marlin, Texas police detective Rob Douglas was shopping at a grocery store when, for whatever reason, the sight of people using food stamps enraged him so much that he felt the need to go onto his personal Facebook account and attack them.
The post (pictured above) reads:
“I love being able to see how the useless lazy turd bags spend the hard earned money my working friends and I provided for them so they can sit of (sic) their lazy asses all month and drink the beer I am paying for. I especially love it in the summer so I can admire the thousands of dollars of ink they have adorning their unclean bodies as they smile at me with that mouth full of bling.”
Let’s table the fact that Douglas is clearly a racist as well as a hater of the poor, because he’s not finished. In the end he concludes that he hates these people at the grocery store so much that he is willing to kill them.
“I promise, if I ever snap and go on a killing spree, it will be in a supermarket on the first.”
It’s disturbing that Douglas writes “if I ever snap,” as if he’s given it some thought and found that it’s not out of the realm of possibility that one day he might take a gun and start killing people in a spree shooting.
There are two things that make death threats involving police officers uniquely terrifying: Without question, the officer has guns and knows how to use them. Given those facts, the threats must be handled with increased seriousness.
To the city of Marlin’s credit, officials immediately suspended Douglas pending an investigation after learning about the post from concerned citizens.
In the understatement of the century, city officials say Douglas’ post may have been ‘inappropriate” and violated a city policy that asks employees not discredit the department by making “statements or other forms of speech that ridicule, malign, disparage or otherwise express bias against any race, any religion, or any other protected class of individuals.”
It has yet to be officially established but calling welfare recipients “unclean” and threatening to possibly kill them someday seems to fall under that clause.
