Those who are paying attention to the ever-expanding police state in the land of the free know that the system is set up in such a way that it protects bad cops while punishing the good ones. Nothing highlights this truth quite like the following two cops. One cop defended justice and simply asked for his fellow cops to do the same while another cop took to social media on multiple occasions and advocated murdering Black Lives Matter protesters. Guess which one was fired…. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t the one who called for murdering innocent protesters.
On June 30, Colorado Springs police officer Sergeant Keith Wrede was found to have regularly commented on videos of BLM protesters with the phrase “KILL THEM ALL!” Wrede was found using a sock puppet account to espouse the calls for genocide as well as his personal account in an apparent attempt to get his message to as many people as possible.
When his department found out, Wrede received a measly five-day suspension and a reassignment. This cop called for murdering people for protesting police brutality and he was not fired. Not only did he keep his job but Colorado Springs police chief Vince Niski actually defended the officer, and offered up his praise for him.
“It was determined that the comments were made off-duty out of frustration and there was no indication of any physical action or intent to cause harm. I am in no way minimizing Sergeant Wrede’s words. His comments were unacceptable, have damaged our relationship with members of our community, and fell short of our standards,” Niski wrote.
After downplaying the cop’s murderous words, the chief went further, defending the officer’s character by claiming the man who advocated the wholesale slaughter of thousands of people is “a good police officer.”
“While his statements were harmful and reprehensible,” Niski continued, “I cannot deprive the community of a good police officer and his services because of an isolated incident of an error in judgment. We hope that you can accept our apology and be assured that the CSPD and Sgt. Wrede will continue to faithfully serve the public.”
As the New Civil Rights Movement points out, “considering that Wrede publicly voiced a desire to kill all Black racial justice protesters peacefully demonstration their First Amendment rights to free speech while opposing system racism and police brutality, we’re not sure why the public, Black people and other citizens of Colorado Springs should feel assured that Wrede will treat them fairly.”
In stark contrast to officer Wrede’s comments, Greensboro Police Department officer Williams took to social media and called for fellow officers to speak out against injustices. Williams went viral with a TikTok video speaking about the murder of George Floyd, while pleading with his fellow officers not to stay silent when they witness their brothers in blue committing crimes. That video is below.
Williams encouraged his fellow cops to do the right thing and instead of honoring or promoting him, Greensboro Police Department suspending him immediately. Two months later and the department has now terminated him because they claim that his social media video is a violation of department policy.
To be clear, Williams never condemned police or offered up anything offensive at all. He was fired for asking cops to be good.
The family of Williams has since decided to take legal action against the department and are asking for your help to get there.
As people continue to protest in the streets, the tone deaf establishment ignores issues like this. The idea that a cop was not fired after repeatedly calling for the slaughter of innocent protesters on social media while another cop was fired for calling for peace should shock the conscience. It should also help to wake those up who don’t understand the fact that policing in the land of the free is in an epic crisis.
