The Philadelphia Police Department has followed Google, Facebook, and Twitter’s lead in crushing its members’ Constitutional rights. The department’s Internal Affairs Unit is investigating a detective who had the temerity to attend President Trump’s rally on January 6th.
A Philadelphia police detective from the unit that investigates the backgrounds of potential recruits has been temporarily reassigned based on a tip that she attended the rally in Washington where President Donald Trump incited his followers to storm the Capitol.
Attending a political rally while off-duty is now an offense which needs to be investigated by Internal Affairs. Philadelphia saw 500 homicides last year, but this is what they’re investigating?
Detective Jennifer Gugger was removed from her position in the police department’s Recruit Background Investigations Unit on Saturday after Internal Affairs received social media posts indicating that she had been at the Wednesday event, departmental sources said.
Why any police officer would be on social media is beyond me, especially after a handful of officers were fired for their Facebook posts in 2019. (It’s also why you will never see me on social media.)
The good news is the department’s investigation is on solid ground…
The tip did not include evidence that Gugger had been inside the Capitol or had participated in the violence.
So some ignorant Karen sent copies of the detective’s posts to the department, but none of the posts have evidence she breached the Capitol or assaulted anyone? Yeah, rock-solid stuff, guys.
For the record, if the detective is assigned to RBI, she likely has a lot of time on the job. I sincerely doubt the detective was foolish enough to risk her career over something so stupid. She would know trespassing is a federal offense, and she would know everyone there had cellphone cameras.
That said, the department will vigorously investigate this thought-criminal for exercising her Constitutional rights, because the current rulers of Birthplace of Liberty never read the Constitution.
