According to WJZ, an email from a Baltimore police lieutenant and union leader has everyone — police leaders as well as activists and civil rights groups — up in arms.
Lt. Victor Gearhart had sent a mass email to his fellow officers in which he referred to protesters at the recent state conference of the Fraternal Order of Police as “the THUGS OF BALTIMORE.”
Police Comissioner Kevin Davis, who was reportedly “absolutely outraged” at the email, suspended Gearhart on Monday.
Gearhart had previously been reassigned to building security over a series of tweets from his personal Twitter account in which he referred to Baltimore residents as “unbathed parasites,” “thugs,” and “scum.”
