Police Officer Fired For Using First Amendment Rights

Federal government employees can do work for the Democratic Socialists of America on the taxpayer dime. The ideology they advocate is the most blood-soaked collection of ignorance and hate in human history. But hey, it fits the leftist narrative. But one police officer, using her first amendment rights, properly calls BLM “terrorists” and she loses her job. That is wrong and blatantly unconstitutional.

FNC: “A New Jersey police officer told ‘Fox & Friends First’ on Wednesday that she was “devastated” after she was fired over a Facebook post where she called Black Lives Matter protesters ‘terrorists.’

“Former Hopewell Township police officer Sara Erwin explained what prompted her to write the post that she said led to her losing her job. A second officer, Sgt. Mandy Gray, who appeared with Erwin on the show, was suspended and demoted for liking the June 2020 post. Both Erwin and Gray each have 20 years of experience, according to their attorney Frank Crivelli, who argued their treatment was unjust and excessively harsh. Gray was the first female officer hired in Hopewell Township and became the first female sergeant when she was promoted in 2019, NJ.com reported, noting that she will lose the rank in the demotion.

“Erwin noted on Wednesday that she wrote the Facebook post during a lot of ‘turmoil’ that was taking place following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin. His death sparked protests and riots in cities across the country.”

Erwin reportedly wrote: “Last night as I left for work I had my two kids crying for me not to go to work. I don’t think I’ve ever felt the way I did last night. And then I watched people I know and others I care about going into harms way. I love my police family like my own. So when you share posts and things on Facebook I’d really appreciate if you’d THINK before doing so. I’ve seen so many black lives matter [sic] hashtags in these posts. Just to let you know — they are terrorists. They hate me. They hate my uniform. They don’t care if I die.” She’s exactly right. We hope she gets her job back.
