A veteran Colorado Springs police officer has been suspended without pay after he wrote the words “KILL THEM ALL” and “KILL EM ALL” in the comments section during a Facebook livestream of a protest, his department said.
The 40-hour suspension for Sgt. Keith Wrede stemming from the June 30 incident will cost him around $2,000 in wages. He also has been removed from a specialized unit, according to Chief Vince Niski.
On that day, protesters had blocked traffic on Interstate 25 while holding signs in support of Black Lives Matter before dispersing when police arrived, media reports say.
“The incident was being covered by multiple local news crews, one of which was live-streaming the demonstration,” Niski said in a statement. “During that live-stream on KRDO’s Facebook, the comments “KILL THEM ALL” and “KILL EM ALL” were made by someone named ‘Steven Eric.’”
