A lot of people are buzzing about this Springfield cop named Conrad Lariviere who thought it would be a smart idea to comment under a Ben Shapiro Facebook post about the fragile white nationalist who killed a protester in Charlottesville:
What a maroon. Seriously, how stupid can you be? First of all, you’re a cop using your real name on Facebook. Rookie move. No public servant who has any sort of controversial things to say should EVER use their real name on Facebook. In a perfect world you’d be allowed to say whatever you want regardless of profession. But that’s not the world we’re living in. You can cry about it or you can play the game and keep your job. He chose to do the former. I don’t even have a Facebook page with my real name. This guy should’ve just been a grownup, made a Clarence Woods Emerson account, and then he could say whatever he wants with no repercussions.
But even if you did get caught doing something like this all you have to do is say, “Wasn’t me.” There’s fake Turtleboy accounts everywhere that write insane shit to make us look bad. If this guy were smart he’d say it wasn’t his account. Just someone trying to make cops look bad. But instead he did this:
Lariviere confirmed that he is a patrolman in a Facebook conversation with MassLive, and expressed remorse for what he described as “a stupid comment about people blocking streets.”
“Never would I want someone to get murdered. I am not a racist and don’t believe in what any of those protesters are doing,” Lariviere told MassLive. “I’m a good man who made a stupid comment and would just like to be left alone.”
Hey, you know what would be a wicked smart thing to do after saying something like this in the immediate aftermath of a murder? Speaking with Masslive before consulting with an attorney or the union. And whatever you do, don’t say, “I’m not a racist” or “I’m a good man.” Because the SJWs ain’t trying to hear that. These people are not reasonable. They hate cops and Trump supporters. They’re looking for a reason to go after people like you, and you served it up to them on a golden platter. They think everyone is a racist, and you saying you’re a good man isn’t gonna change their opinion about you. Good thing he added in that he’d “like to be left alone though.” I’m sure the lynch mobs will honor his request. It’s not like this is a controversial topic or anything like that.
Look, he was right about one thing – protesters shouldn’t block roads. And if a bunch of hippies blockade a highway, the Turtleboy hippie plowing freedommobile isn’t stopping. But this wasn’t like that. That was a crowded side street, in the heart of a Nazi protest that was getting national attention. It’s not me on my way to work.
And whatever you do, make sure the first thing you write isn’t, “HAHAHHAHA love this.” Ya know, because a woman did die. And if you’re a cop and you’re “loving” and laughing at a second degree murder caught on tape, it’s not gonna end up well for you.
Then to make it worse he writes, “How do you know he was a Nazi scumbag? Stop being part of the problem.” If you don’t have the intuition to realize what side the murderer was on before he was arrested, then you probably shouldn’t be a cop. Because cops are supposed to have street smarts and intuition. Like, an hour later the killer was identified as a Hitler lover.
Bro, you’re not some trailer trash commenting on Breitbart. You’re a cop. You’re a professional. You have the right to say shit like that on Facebook, but you don’t have a right to be a cop. And from the looks of it, he’s not gonna be one for long. Here’s what Internal Affairs has to say about it:
“I received notification of this Facebook post earlier today via email from a complainant. The post is purportedly from Springfield police officer. I took immediate steps to initiate a prompt and thorough internal investigation,” Barbieri wrote in an email. “If in fact this post did originate from an officer employed with the Springfield Police Department, this matter will be reviewed by the Community Police Hearings Board for further action.”
Yea dude, you’re fucked. Fair or not, you gotta know the political climate. And there’s no way in hell your union isn’t gonna sell you down the river. You just made life impossible for the SPD. Yesterday they posted this harmless thing about a spin class on their Facebook page:
And this is what happened:
Literally every post on their page in the last week is flooded like this. You think this is what Conrad’s bosses wanna deal with? Do you understand how furious they probably are with him for being this fucking stupid? It’s hard enough being a cop in America right now. Now it’s a million times worse because this maroon couldn’t shut the fuck up on social media. Like your average ratchet we profile on Turtleboy.
Here’s what the Mayor said:
“I just got done issuing a statement this morning on how upsetting the tragic incidents were in Charlottesville, Virginia and one of our own officers does this? Unbelievable! There is no place for this in our society, let alone from a Springfield Police Officer,” Sarno said. “I stand by and commend Commissioner John Barbieri’s steps for a thorough internal investigation and review by our Community Police Hearing Board to pursue the appropriate discipline against said officer.”
Yup, he’s fucked. Sarno is a democrat, but he’s very reasonable. He’s against making Springfield a sanctuary city, and was outspoken against Hampshire College when they refused to raise the American flag after Trump won the election. If you’ve lost him, you’ve lost everyone.
This story is being carried by the MSM nationwide because it obviously fits their agenda. Someone actually sent us this story two days ago and we never got around to it because weekends are family time in the Turtleboy households, and on Sundays especially we focus on putting together the greatest Turtleboy Live show ever.
Honestly, I’m glad we didn’t break it. This guy’s career is over. He’s fucked. And generally the type of people we like to ruin the lives of are people who harass our advertisers. That’s about it. No way the SPD keeps him on way. How can they? The free speech advocate in me says he should be suspended without pay, but the realist in me knows that they have no choice but to fire him.
