Breitbart News reports that two police officers in Hopewell Township, New Jersey are suing the government for being blacklisted over correctly labeling the Marxist revolutionaries of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement “terrorists.”
“Last night as I left for work I had my two kids crying for me not to go to work,” wrote now-fired police officer Sara Erwin on Facebook back in June 2020 at the height of BLM’s nationwide rioting and looting. “I don’t think I’ve ever felt the way I did last night. And then I watched people I know and others I care about going into harms way. I love my police family like my own. So when you share posts and things on Facebook I’d really appreciate if you’d THINK before doing so. I’ve seen so many black lives matter [sic] hashtags in these posts. Just to let you know — they are terrorists. They hate me. They hate my uniform. They don’t care if I die.” Sgt. Mandy Grey replied to the post.
“The town’s Woke Nazis immediately went apeshit,” writes John Nolte at Breitbart. “Erwin and several employees who reacted to the post were investigated and placed on leave and then the cowering gerbil of a police chief made a public apology to the town.”
Erwin and Grey were suspended for six months and demoted. Both are public servants with 20 or more years of service; nevertheless, the town council voted unanimously to accept the recommendation for the firing, suspension, and demotion from hearing officer, lawyer Brian P. Trelease.
Their attorney Frank Crivelli described the two as exemplary and decorated officers with “absolutely no disciplinary history.” He added, correctly, that the town and its actions are “disgraceful and cowardice.”
