Gretna police officer suggests U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'needs a round' in social media post
BY CHAD CALDER | STAFF WRITER PUBLISHED JUL 20, 2019 AT 10:45 AM | UPDATED JUL 20, 2019 AT 12:26 PM

A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "vile idiot" who "needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve."

The comment, which alludes to the freshman Democrat's past work as a New York City bartender while apparently saying she should be shot, comes amid increasing scrutiny of racist and violent social media posts by police officers in departments across the country.

Charlie Rispoli, who has been on the Gretna police force since 2005, could not be reached for comment, but Chief Arthur Lawson called the post "disturbing" when it was shown to him Friday.

ďI will tell you this: This will not go unchecked," Lawson said. "Iím not going to take this lightly and this will be dealt with on our end. Itís not something we want someone thatís affiliated with our department to make these types of statements. Thatís not going to happen."

1. He needs to be fired.

Someone needs to do the right thing and mean what they say about not tolerating this shit.

Put him on 4 weeks of paid off-duty while they "investigate". He'll be back.

he needs his gun taken away and put on a desk job.

Then investigate, rule of law applies and build a case to prosecute the above.

2. Maybe Chuckles is the one who "needs a round"

and I don't mean "of applause."

Rispoli's comment referred to a fake news story he posted to his personal Facebook page on Thursday at 1:51 p.m. The story's headline attributed a fabricated quote to Ocasio-Cortez saying, "We pay soldiers too much." The photo on the post is marked as "satire" and it had been labeled "false" by the website snopes.com on Wednesday, but Rispoli appeared to be upset by it.

Not the smartest pig in the pen, is he.

I advocate experiences with other human beings, not firing. Fire them and they risk becoming more rabid make-America-white-again jerks.

No one wants to do the job. Probably no agency is 100 percent manned anymore.

Says this LEO retired family, who has no children working in law enforcement.

Let someone else's kids do it.

37. i forgot to mention much higher pay, which would come with more ed (supposedly)

i've heard of european countries that require college degree and pay 2 or 3 times what they're paid here.

and those radio station hacks are always there to beat down any tax increases on the wealthy that would be used to pay for such improvements, more staff, etc

not to mention every effort to raise the minimum wage that would bounce up the chain

instead they defend any officer who shoots unarmed black men, attack BLM and kneeling athletes for protesting police brutality, support calls for militarization of police

and every RW blowhard's job is to protect the right of every potential criminal and nut who these cops might face to be able satisfy their 'god given right' to 'carry' and have 10 AR-15s in the trunk at all times.

and i'd be surprised a significant number of police listen to that shit, whether it kept them angry, on edge, or scared

14. limbo's been calling AOC/omar stalinists socialists communists regularly since they were elected

and trump just followed the line, as he has been on everything he does.

a few months ago limbo made up a silly pretext one show to be able to repeat "take AOC out" and "take her out" a bunch of times in a row. he got hundreds of rw radio blowhards to attack her like he did christine 'ballsey' ford - and the left and dems do nothing

and the russians are piggybacking it

28. If Rispoli was fired today, he'd land a Fed job tomorrow

Customs and Border Protection would gladly welcome him aboard. As would ICE or other Homeland Security departments. Fit right in! Nice pay and benefits, and probably relocation from LA to one of the border states (unless, of course, there's already a concentration camp nearby).

No, lock his sorry ass up and throw away the key. (No Epstein unlocked-cell privileges for him).

32. WWJD

The Jesus party, prolife shit bags are the ones making the daily death threats non-stop, many are not just threats, actually killing minorities, and "libs". Show me one single instance of the so called "Far Left" mailing bombs and making threats to killing righties. These assholes need to be shut down, locked up or sent back to where they came from. I believe that is what Jesus would do. If he really gave a fuck. If threats are ok, there is a list of top GOP treasoners that need some ass kicking, at least face treason penalties as per the constitution.
