Now speaking truth has become a punishable offense for this Baltimore Police officer. The DOJ comes in, threatens their funding, so they simply comply. Is This what the nationalization of police departments really looks like? They just wanted to burn the place down and kill police officers, so thugs might be a bit to strong of a word. Perhaps civilly challenged was the word he was looking for?

Sources say that a Baltimore police lieutenant has been suspended after sending an email that referred to protesters of the Black Lives Matter movement as “thugs.”

Lt. Victor Gearhart, a police union leader, sent the email out to the entire force, reports Baltimore CBS Local.

In the email, Gearhart warns the police force to expect more “bad behavior” from protesters. He also writes that the protesting might distract them from “killing each other.”

“By now you have seen that the THUGS from Black Lives Matter and other similar groups have attempted to disrupt the State FOP Convention being held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Well today as check-in day with activities spread over the next 3 days so expect more bad behavior from the Thugs of Baltimore. On the bright side maybe they will stop killing each other while they are protesting us,” Gearhart wrote in the email.
