Decatur, Alabama cop declares the KKK irrelevant, naturally they are investigating him…

I am guessing a cop declaring the Klan irrelevant never thought it could potentially cost him his job.

Welcome to Trump’s America, where morons will continue to destroy people for no reason.

His comments?

The Facebook conversation involved a person who accused President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon of being “alt-right white male supremacist! The KKK is in the White House-they are very relevant,” the commenter said.

Robertson responded with, ” ‘Well,, If we survived a Musli(m) President born in Kenya,, surely we can survive one little klansman. #GoodGrief.'”

“The Klan and every other white Supremacist groups out there are completely ‘irrelevant’ unless the media and groups like this advertise and put them on the front page,” Robertson also wrote on Facebook. “They have NO influence on anyone or any group that matters. The klan and this ideology has been dead and gone for decades.”

Problem?

In the real world? None.

In 2016, a real one…

The spokesman for an Alabama police department who also chairs the Lawrence County Republican party is being investigated because of comments he made on social media.

Decatur police Public Information Officer Lt. Proncey Robertson is the subject of an internal affairs investigation because of comments he made referencing the Ku Klux Klan, Muslims, President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump on his personal Facebook page, Chief Nate Allen said. Decatur is a city in Morgan County with about 55,000 residents.

This investigation should have taken 5 minutes.

A common-sense reading of this is that there is no racial animus here but, again, it’s 2016.

Decatur’s Chief seems to get it…

Allen, who took over as Decatur’s police chief in May has focused his efforts on strengthening community relations.

“I’m not going to say this incident harmed those relations, but it did put some question marks up,” Allen said. “I believe Lt. Robertson just made a personal mistake with his sarcasm remarks and that’s something we have to work to correct.”
