A Gretna, Louisiana, police officer is under fire after stating in a Facebook post that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ‘needs a round.’
Charlie Rispoli, a 14-year-veteran of the Gretna Police Department in southeast Louisiana, shared the offending post on Thursday.
Rispoli captioned the post — which featured a satirical news article about Ocasio-Cortez — with the disturbing remark.
“This vile idiot needs a round[.] And I don’t mean the kind she used to serve,” he wrote, alluding to her previous bartender background. Rispoli has since deleted the remark, but copies of it remain on the internet.
