Cop Suspended Over Mexican And Trump-Themed TikTok Videos

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — A Coral Springs police sergeant has been suspended without pay for two weeks after investigators said he posted two offensive TikTok videos, including one in which someone sings a song asking President Donald Trump to send Mexicans back to Mexico.

Sgt. Gilbert Monzon must undergo 40 hours of racial bias and sensitivity training, according to documents released this week. Although the police chief recommended he be demoted to patrol officer effective January, he was spared that punishment by the city manager.

Monzon, 36, is a 12-year veteran of the force who’s among the officers lauded for helping injured victims to safety after the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in 2018.

Colorado Police Officer On Leave After Posting He Wanted To “Beat The Hell” Out Of Democrats

A Colorado police officer is on administrative leave after posting on Facebook that he wanted to “beat the hell” out of Democrats and was ready to leave his job so he can “hurt these people.”

Platteville police Chief Carl Dwyer became aware of Officer Jason Taft’s post Wednesday afternoon, the chief said in an email to The Denver Post. Dwyer immediately placed Taft on administrative leave while the incident is investigated, he said. Platteville is a town of about 2,700 people in Weld County.

Taft, who has been with the department since January 2018, posted the following at 1:54 p.m. Wednesday:

“If for some reason we lose do we get to be little bitches and beat the hell out of the other party like they did,” Taft wrote in his post, which was still publicly visible Thursday afternoon. “Because they don’t believe in what we do. In fact in case we actually let Biden win. There will be far fewer results than this year because we’ll help them find God. Democrats you were scared of Trump now’s the true time to be afaird. We will do what you have done to our city’s and prevail p.s. please meet me at the battle grounds.”
