Two Gretna, Louisiana, police officers have reportedly been fired over a Facebook post regarding U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Officer Charles Rispoli was originally placed on administrative leave without pay, pending an investigation. However, he was then fired Monday afternoon. His original post referred to Ocasio-Cortez, stating, “This vile idiot needs a round… & I don’t mean the kind she used to serve.”
Another officer has also reportedly been fired for “liking” the post.
