Police officer suggests AOC should be shot: 'She needs a round'

A   Louisiana   police officer suggested Democrat congresswoman   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez   should be shot, drawing widespread condemnation.

The officer, Charlie Rispoli, a 14-year veteran of the police department in Gretna, referred to Ms Ocasio-Cortez in a post on Thursday as “this vile idiot".

The post continued, saying she “needs a round – and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve”, a reference to her past work as a bartender, according to a screenshot of his comment obtained by   nola.com , which covers New Orleans.

He was responding to a post by the satirical website   TatersGonnaTate   with the headline “Ocasio-Cortez on the Budget: ‘We Pay Soldiers Too Much'".

Wayne Rau, a city councilman and the current mayor of Gretna, a city of about 18,000 people across the Mississippi River from New Orleans, condemned Mr Rispoli’s post in an interview on Sunday.

“I’m pretty appalled by it,” Mr Rau said. “I don’t think this is a representation of the police department of the city of Gretna.”

Asked whether Mr Rispoli’s Facebook post was a threat, he said, “I’m not sure how to take that post.” He said it should be up to the city’s police chief, Arthur Lawson, to decide on any disciplinary or criminal action.

Three of Mr Rau's four other members in Gretna City Council were not immediately available for comment, while the fourth, Jackie Berthelot, directed questions to the police department.

Efforts on Sunday to reach Mr Rispoli, who appeared to have deactivated his Facebook account, were also unsuccessful. Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ms Ocasio-Cortez, declined to comment. Mr Lawson, who is an elected official, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The chief said he was disturbed by the post. “I will tell you this: This will not go unchecked,” he said.

“I’m not going to take this lightly and this will be dealt with on our end. It’s not something we want someone that’s affiliated with our department to make these types of statements. That’s not going to happen.”


The chief told the website on Friday that the post appeared to violate the department’s social media policy but he did not think it rose to the level of being a threat.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez is part of a quartet of first-year Democrats in the House who have received death threats and were told by   Donald Trump   to “go back where you came from” in a   racially charged post on Twitter.

Belinda Constant, the mayor of Gretna, said she had been out of the state and was not immediately prepared to comment. “I will be looking into the situation,” Ms Constant, a Democrat, said.

Eva Malecki, a spokeswoman for the US Capitol Police, declined to say whether the agency was investigating.

“The mission of the United States Capitol Police is to protect and serve Congress,” she said. “However, we do not discuss how we carry out our protective responsibilities.”

The four congresswomen were also the subject of a recent Facebook post by the Republican County Chairmen’s Association of Illinois, which depicted them in a mock movie poster that referred to them as the “jihad squad".

“Political Jihad is their game,” said the post, which was published on Friday and later deleted. “If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology you’re racist.”

It showed   Ilhan Omar   of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts brandishing guns.

On Sunday night, the state’s Republican Party chairman,   Tim Schneider , issued a statement disavowing the post, which he said did not reflect the party’s values.

“Bigoted rhetoric greatly distracts from legitimate and important policy debates and further divides our nation,” Mr Schneider said, adding, “I urge everyone who opposes them to keep the rhetoric focused on policy and ideology.”

This was said about Representative Omar as well, that she should be shot.  I think regarding Mrs. Omar - it was said that 'someone needs to put a bullet in her'.  

See the hatred the 'president' is stirring up against democrats and democratic lawmakers?

Making money on lying about democrats and Liberals, and stirring up hate and division. As you had to ask, there is little doubt that points like these will be lost on Wally you as usual as you've got the Kool-Aid running through your veins.....  You'll answer with your typical "what-aboutisms."

You posted generalities that are your opinion. Can you give us actual specifics of what you say, and please make sure those specifics are actual documented comments, not liberal feelings..

“You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.”

“Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

“Take that bone out of your nose and call me back (to an African American female caller).”

But you most likely revere Rush racist asshole just like you revere Trump.

All four are vile idiots, but many on the left have advocated the same action upon Trump.

All this hate and divisiveness originates with the left.

Does the name Representative STEVE SCALISE ring a bell?

Since when was it said about 'republicans' in general?

Like Paula said - everyone has said they needed to be voted out, not taken out.  

Show me the name of one 'republican' fatality.

Abe Lincoln

Killed by one of the southern conservatives that you revere.  Lincoln was a progressive.  He was killed because he was progressive.

1.3.4  seeder  Tessylo  replied to  FLYNAVY1 @1.3.3    5 months ago

I believe they were plotting his demise even before he became president.  Lincoln that is.  

Just like the republicans had planned to shoot down anything President Obama brought up.  They decided that before he was even President.  

1.3.5  XDm9mm  replied to  FLYNAVY1 @1.3.3    5 months ago
Lincoln was a progressive.  He was killed because he was progressive.

He was in the National Union.  Now you DO know don't you that the National Union was the Civil War era name of.....  drum roll please...  the REPUBLICAN PARTY.

The National Union Party was the temporary name used by the Republican Party for the national ticket in the 1864 presidential election that was held during the Civil War. For the most part, state Republican parties did not change their name. Wikipedia

Put whatever damn name of a party you want Tex.  Lincoln was a progressive, just like the founding fathers were.

And you can stick that worn out different party position crap someplace else, cause that dog don't hunt.

The cop who made the "she needs a round"  comment on Facebook should be fired.  He doesnt have the intelligence or sense to be a police officer. 

First of all, his comment is based on fake news. He was upset because he saw a news item that said AOC had said that American soldiers are being paid too much money.  That story was fake news. AOC never said that. 

Secondly, the cop is stupid enough to post a threat of shooting someone on Facebook , using his own name. People who do these things regularly get fired from their jobs, and he should be fired too.

In July 2019, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, "We pay soldiers way too much."


“This vile idiot needs a round...and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve,” Gretna Police Officer Charlie Rispoli said in a Facebook post last week, according to a screenshot obtained by   nola.com.   Rispoli was alluding to the progressive Democratic congresswoman’s past as a bartender, and appears to be saying she should be shot.

Rispoli’s Facebook post was commenting on an article headlined “Ocasio-Cortez On the Budget: ‘We Pay Soldiers Too Much’” from a satire website called “Taters Gonna Tate.” The website proclaims on its “about” page that “Everything on this website is fiction. It is not a lie and it is not fake news because it is not real. If you believe that it is real, you should have your head examined.”

A frequent publisher of junk news and inflammatory misinformation targeted U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in July 2019, falsely claiming that she had said the United States pays soldiers “way too much.”

On July 16, Taters Gonna Tate posted an article with the headline “Ocasio-Cortez on the Budget: ‘We Pay Soldiers Too Much,'” which  reported  that:

“… Alexandra [sic] Ocasio-Cortez is fairly well-known for spouting out little ‘ideas’ that most people would figure out were, well, dumb.  This time, it seems the Baby Boss has been perusing the proposed budget sheet for the upcoming months, and had her little mind blown by what she saw, leading her to proclaim in an open session of Congress that : ‘Wow!  We pay soldiers WAY too much!'”

As of July 2019, Ocasio-Cortez has never said this, either in a  session  of Congress or in any other forum. The source of the fabricated article, Taters Gonna Tate, is part of a network of sites and social media accounts operated by  Christopher Blair , who produces a high volume of junk news and misinformation, much of it inflammatory, which he presents as “satire.”

All the 'right' has is lies, misinformation, disinformation, and more lies.
