A North Carolina police chief says he was forced to retire after an anti-Black Lives Matter Facebook post.
WECT-TV reports Surf City Police Chief Mike Halstead retired effective immediately after calling the movement a “terrorist group” and that President Barack Obama has brought about a race problem in the U.S.
“He put that information out, that was intended for his friends and colleagues and peers, but it was a public statement and there are people that were offended,” Surf City Town Manager Larry Bergman told WECT.
Halstead put up the open letter on Facebook on Sept. 3.
“[T]his Black Lives Matter group is nothing more than an American born terrorist group brought on by the lie of the hands up don’t shoot during the criminal thug Michael Brown incident. The FBI and other Government Law Enforcement groups need to step up and put a stop to this.
“… When a black thug is killed by police they are all over it as is Mr. Barack Obama. However when a police officer white, black or any race is murdered for doing his job the media is short with its reporting or not at all. When a white person is killed by a black officer you hear nothing. Has our so called President spoke publicly about these murders of police officers by blacks, HELL NO he has not. Step up Mr. President, or step down because we do not need you.
