I swear. These must be the dumbest cops alive. I mean, don't they realize the complaint against them is that they are too quick on the draw? That they are failures as cops by drawing high-powered guns on unarmed civilians?
Yet, this cop goes right ahead and does it. In front of cameras. And then he points his gun at the cameramen!
Fortunately he was suspended for this:
A suburban St. Louis police officer who threatened to kill media members as he pointed his high-powered rifle at a group of people filming Tuesday night’s protests in Ferguson, Mo., has been suspended after video of the incident went viral Wednesday.
The unidentified St. Ann, Mo. police officer, who told one man his name was “go f— yourself,” has been “relieved of duty and suspended indefinitely” for his “inappropriate” actions, the St. Louis County Police Department said in a statement to Mashable.
In the minute-long video clip, the portly, bald police officer is seen pointing his semi-automatic assault rifle at crowds of people walking along a Ferguson street just before midnight Tuesday.
