    Gretna police officer suggests U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'needs a round'

    A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "vile idiot" who "needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve." Charlie Rispoli, who has been on the Gretna police force since 2005, could not be reached for comment, but Chief Arthur Lawson called the post "disturbing" when it was shown to him Friday.

    ...Rispoli's comment referred to a fake news story he posted to his personal Facebook page on Thursday at 1:51 p.m. The story's headline attributed a fabricated quote to Ocasio-Cortez saying, "We pay soldiers too much." The photo on the post is marked as "satire" and it had been labeled "false" by the website snopes.com on Wednesday, but Rispoli appeared to be upset by it.

    Ahhhh, I see Gretna's in the news again.
    They weren't satisfied with threatening Katrina evacuees so I guess they wanted some more fame.

    That's right kids. Don't voice anything on social media that can be seen as mean, or generally ugly. Unless it targets anyone who's remotely right of the political spectrum, then you're pretty much given free rein to do so.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Whoo hoo for ignorance, and hip hip hooray for equal protection, what happened to the critical thinking skills the conservatives once had? It's really sad what family values turned out to be.

    Don't see how one person who said some naughty words online, accounts for all conservatives, but okay.
    I'm just pointing out how someone who's not in the protected political sphere can't say whatever they want, and will most likely be actively attacked for it. While people who inhabit the protected sphere, barely get held accountable for much, despite some of egregious crap they can say.

    That was a terrible thing to say, his words should be condemned by all. Surely we can all agree on that and it should have bi-partisan support.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    A police officer preaching murder on social media, a fake story driving his rage. What is happening to this country?
    I read this article. I read your reaction. A number of thoughts went through my mind.

    1. Gretna? What the hell is Gretna and why should I care about it? Do people say, "Where Gretna goes, so goes America"? I don't think so.

    2. One person who happens to be a policeman. There are around 17,000 people in Gretna (I looked it up). Does this one person speak for everyone in Gretna? Is he the leader of a "Kill AOC" organization that pervades Gretna? Or is he one idiot shooting his mouth off online?

    3. Someone says the words "social media post" and what?...it's supposed to be referring to some huge hotbed of...something? How many people were exposed to that guy's words? Very few, I'm thinking.

    4. Why on earth would j brown's body think this is "Breaking News"?

    After those thoughts run through my mind, after I post those thoughts here, guess what? I won't think about this Gretna guy again and I won't think about j brown's body's thread. I'll just leave it to him to wonder "What is happening to this country?"

    Outside of a few deranged individuals, I'm pretty sure most everyone regardless of political would agree with that.

    My issue is how sad it is that someone posting a mean tweet is somehow news now. You would think that with everything happening in the world journalists would have a little more to do then sit on Twitter all day hoping some idiot says something offensive.
