After expressing his feelings towards the media, the government, and calling for the end of the #blacklivesmatter movement, Surf City, NC Police Chief Mike Halstead retired effective immediately after an emergency Town Council meeting was held on Tuesday in response to the Sept. 3 Facebook post.
An excerpt from the letter reads as follows:
“Open letter from a Police Chief , this Black Lives Matter group is nothing more than an American born terrorist group brought on by the lie of the hands up don’t shoot during the criminal thug Michael Brown incident. The FBI and other Government Law Enforcement groups need to step up and put a stop to this. The Government and blacks would not tolerate the White Supremacist group to march through the streets and call for the murders of a race of people and a group of public servants. I agree there is a race problem in this country. It is not brought on by police officer doing their sworn duty, it is brought on by the government, the President and his cronies Al Sharpton, who is a criminal tax evader (but has the support of our so called President), Jessi Jackson, Eric Holder and that ignorant S.O.B. Farrakhan who should be charged with solicitation for murder, lord knows a white man would be arrested for the same actions of idiot Farakhan. I am sure there are many hard working Black people who will agree with me. I have been a Police Officer for 35 years. I do not judge anyone by the color of their skin, but by there actions. A criminal is a criminal whether a police officer or any other profession. I will not state statistics because black lives matter do not care or believe proven statistics. I put allot of the blame for these cop murders on the media and the way they report police related shootings. There is no need to list or even state the race of a person shot by the police. It is more important to wait for the facts and report those. But and a big but that does not make money for these greedy media ass holes. When a black thug is killed by the police they are all over it as is Mr. Barack Obama. However when a police officer white, black or any race is murdered for doing his job the media is short with it’s reporting or not at all. … America wake up, all of you black, white, Mexican whatever you need the police, we do not need you. End this Black Lives Matter bull [s–t] and start a movement that all lives matter. …”
Now, we ain’t tryna start no drama…but this man CAN NOT be serious. We don’t give racist’s much of our energy, but we’ll just say this. He fails to mention the KKK WAS (and still is) an actual American-born terrorist group that marched through neighborhoods calling for the murder of another race. In fact, they are one of the main American-born terrorist group’s who STILL have yet to be dismantled.
Because he forgot to include facts and statistics, we’ll take this as him feeling some type of way because of all the positive attention melinated people have been receiving in the media.
You don’t have to agree, but we would love to hear your opinions on this. It was also noted he apologized for his words if they offended anyone. We are just thankful he is no longer on the force.
