A Detroit police officer, who was using her time off to give a little girl some school supplies, was ridiculed by some on social media and threatened by one man in particular.
For the most part, the female officer was praised by neighbors of the community when someone uploaded cell phone video of the good deed on Facebook.

Well, the officer was actually mocked by people online who said she’d arrested them before. Asst. Police Chief Steve Dolunt told Fox 2 that this officer is well-known in the 11th precinct.
The most alarming comment, however, was made by someone who goes by the name Gee Ross. He wrote “kill that pig” on Facebook Sunday night and police tracked him down and arrested him the following day.
“We have rights too, we have families too,” Dolunt said. “And if you want to put it out there that you want to kill us, we’ll we’re going to lock you up. I don’t want to kill you, I want to lock you up,” he said.
Police say another Facebook user let them know about the threat. “Anything on social media doesn’t get completely erased,” Dolunt warned.
