A San Antonio Police Department officer was suspended for 30 days without pay for a social media post, reports the San Antonio Express-News. “I love my job!!! They said you want kill people and not go to jail?? I said “F— ya, Who don't?… They said you afraid of the jungle?? I said “I ain't scared of sh–… I've been wanting go jungle since watched that Predator movie…I love my job!!!!!! Lol,” said the post by Daryl Carle on Facebook.
Police Chief William McManus said Carle told him the origin of the post was a quote from a YouTube video series. The series, “Action Figure Therapy,” which posts funny and sometimes vulgar videos of action figures ranting about military and tactical topics. “Regardless, to put that up, to post that doesn't make a lot of sense,” McManus said. “It certainly doesn't make your job any easier. If people read that, it doesn't garner any respect for the department, to read that coming from one of our officers.” At least seven people have been killed by law enforcement in Bexar County this year. “In this current time, where social media is big… we've just got to be careful about what we post,” McManus said. “We can raise or lose support by some of the things that we post. Whether they're intended to be hurtful or not, it's irrelevant.”
