A NYC Corrections Captain was suspended on Wednesday for a joint-social media account post demanding that “cop killers’ rise up and attack police.
Captain La Shonda Stanley was punished after her husband, Rashid, allegedly posted a threatening message to no one in particular on their shared social media account.
“F**K THE POLICE,” the message read in all-caps.”IT’S TIME WE SHOOT BACK!!! COP KILLERS STAND UP!!!!”
The violent outburst was apparently in relation to a recent incident where water buckets were dumps on local police.
“Y’ALL UPSET ABOUT SOME PIGS GETTING WATER THROWN ON THEM,”Rashid wrote. “THEY’RE LUCKY THEY DIDN’T GET SHOT WHILE MAKING AN ARREST!. ALL THE INNOCENT BLACK MEN AND WOMEN KILLED AT THE HANDS OF THESE PIGS.”
The message was signed “Mr. Stanley,” and Captain Stanley -who makes $91,943 a year- was quick to out her husband for his tirade.
“I didn’t make those comments,” said Stanley as she arrived at her Brooklyn home. “Yeah, that’s my husband’s comment.”
Still, the matter does not sit well with local officers, and the NYC Department of Corrections took action immediately.
“I will not tolerate this type of behavior from anyone in my department against members of the NYPD or any other law enforcement officer in this country,” NYC-DOC Commissioner Cynthia Brann in a statement to the New York Post.
Rashid’s threats did not stop at the water-throwing incident. In relation to Eric Garner, he suggested that the police “got off with murder,” and even threatened “so-called ‘good cops.’”
“DEATH TO YOU SCUMBAGS ALSO, YOU STAND BY AND ALLOW YOUR FELLOW OFFICERS TO DO WRONG, YOU GUILTY AS WELL!” he wrote, never once pausing to think his statement through or use the caps lock button.
Several unnamed law enforcement officers were willing to speak with the Post, and many expressed disappointment in Captain Stanley for allowing such a post to be made.
