Western Journalism ^ | Jul 28, 2014 | B. Christopher Agee

Following April’s standoff between federal agents and civilian protesters at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, tensions on both sides of the issue remained high. What one law enforcement professional posted on social media regarding the incident, however, went far beyond the bounds of policy disagreement.

After publicly fantasizing about blowing a protester’s head off with his sniper rifle, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that [Officer Laws] was soon called out by fellow Facebook user J.L. Bourne.

According to sources within the department, he was transferred out of the SWAT team and placed on patrol duty.

He SHOULD have lost his badge, gun, and any authority whatsoever to act as a “law enforcement officer.”

Of course, homeland security is full of these people.. and the irony is we’re supposed to be the threat.

Back when I prosecuted, I knew a SWAT office who did the same thing. He’d fantasize about a “head shot”. Real freak.

Agreed. His kind stew in their own juices. Won’t be the last time we hear about this guy, and someone will pay for what idiot boy brought upon himself...

The officers’ local union, however, is attempting to make a case that Laws and Quick were punished without due process.

And what of the due process of someone shot by these goons?

So he is still in a position to kill someone under the color of authority? I wonder how many voters in LV are upset by this. Apparently not enough to actually affect the department’s decision making.

All swat teams should be disbanded. That or just declare war on all US citizens.

And once again idiots and Facebook partner up to get the user into trouble. Thank goodness this time. I wonder if Lon Horiuchi has a Facebook page?

That, and be a “prohibited person” from ever owning firearms too.

It’s one thing for us lowly citizens to think such things, as we would be facing murder charges if we ever acted on them. He IS a law enforcement officer and should never be allowed to possess or own a firearm as punishment for considering his fellow citizens legitimate targets.

He fantasizes about blowing people’s heads off. Whether you give him a .308 rifle or a handgun, he still has the means to blow heads off. The problem will not be remedied until this guy is put in a purely office-bound capacity, where his fantasies about blowing off heads cannot possibly come to fruition, at least in his official capacity.

You don't understand, the key word there is enforcement, not law.

Remember, they want you (the citizen) to

"Officials within the department reportedly felt that condoning such behavior would only embolden a SWAT team behind three fatal shootings within the past year."

Gee, ya think?
