    Utah police officer on leave for refusing Gay Pride Parade assignment

    A Salt Lake City police officer has been put on leave due to allegations that he refused to work at this weekend’s Utah Pride Parade."If you refuse to do an assignment, that’s going to be a problem inside the police department," police spokeswoman Lara Jones said Friday of the need for officers to follow orders.Internal affairs officers are investigating the officer’s refusal while he is on paid leave, Jones confirmed.She would not discuss the officer’s reason for refusing the assignment, but said: "The vast majority of officers, when they come to work, they understand that they leave their personal opinions at home and serve the community."
    Jones said about 30 officers are scheduled to provide traffic control and security for the 120-entry parade, Utah’s premier LGBT celebration. The parade begins at 10 a.m. Sunday in downtown Salt Lake City."We have provided public safety services to this event since its inception," Jones said.

    Wow its amazing how incredibly stupid and or bigoted some people are.
    How anybody feels remorse for idiots that simply dont practice common sense and or break the law Ill never know.

    Im a christian and even without my religion there are many personal opinions i have that dont line up with law, rights or society. But I would have to be a complete mentally inept moron to think because of this i deserve special treatment or am above the rules/laws or get to violate the rights of others.

    Whats next white ER doctors not working on blacks?
    Jewish firemen not responding to a fire call at a mosque?
    Male pharmacist not dealing with any women
    etc etc


    and these idiots trying the mentally retarded argument of freedom of religion or personal morals?

    it will fail because they simply have ZERO understanding of how rights and freedom works. We ALL have rights.

    if your religion or personal morals are so warped that they don't allow you to operate civilly in a free society where we all have the same rights you are in the wrong county.

    If he worked for me, his leave would be permanent. Refusing to carry out your duty, regardless of the reason, should be a firing offense.

    He has a right to his opinion, but should be disciplined for refusing the assignment.

    Its simply insubordination.

    I have zero tolerance for insubordination, as well.

    I feel the same way. Especially for an officer of the law its totally unacceptable.
    If ones personal feelings are so biased, bigoted or strong one should simply not work where there job will be hindered.
