It seems that Sgt. Mike Weston of the Velda City Police Dept. is not a big fan of US Attorney General Eric Holder.
"AG Holder is in St. Louis Today. I should go in early and punch him in the nose for so many different reasons." - Tweet by Sgt. Mike Weston, Velda City Police
Sergeant Mike Weston took to Twitter this week, complaining about "libs", giving out false information, insulting Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson's approach to community policing and threatening to seek out visiting U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in order to "punch him in the nose."
Asked by followers on Twitter why police had gassed a group of people who were in their own back yard, Sgt. Weston responded that gunshots had been fired from that location. The problem is, a Daily RFT reporter was in that back yard and caught the incident on video. No shots were fired; no one was armed and everyone had their hands up in protest. When presented with that information, Sgt. Weston admitted he was not even in the area when the gassing occurred.
Sgt. Weston, who has since deleted his Twitter account, @officeranon2, also made a point of running down Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson. He called the Captain's interactions with the protesters "Hug a Thug" and accused him of a double standard based on skin color.
