A police officer in the city of Glendale, Missouri, fifteen miles from Ferguson, was suspended after his superiors became aware of some insanely racist Facebook posts regarding the protests that have sprung up in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager gunned down by Officer Darren Wilson.
Officer Matthew Pappert, who has been with the Glendale Police Department since 2008, has, like Wilson, won many awards. Pappert was the recipient of the 2009 City of Glendale Community Service Award and the Kirkwood American Legion Post and Kirkwood Optimist Club Public Safety Award. He’s also an award-winning racist.
Pappert’s Facebook page has been removed, but the Daily Caller preserved screenshots of his disgusting posts:
Pappert is a firearms instructor and part of the Crisis Intervention Team, according to a City of Glendale 2013 annual report–and Glendale Police Chief Jeff Beaton is not at all happy. Beaton says that the Facebook page appears to legitimately be Pappert.
“I’m shocked to be quite honest,” he told The Caller. “I wouldn’t expect any of my officers to make any kind of posts related directly to this incident since it doesn’t involve our agency. Again those are personal posts and they absolutely do not reflect the City of Glendale.”
Commenters on the Caller’s article were upset that their favorite publication seemed to have ‘gone liberal.’
Pappert has joined St. Louis cop Dan Page in learning that open and overt bigotry will not be tolerated–that’s more of a “behind the scenes” thing…
Kudos to the Daily Caller for calling out a racist cop. It’s something FOX and Breitbart would never do.
