THE LATEST ON THE INVESTIGATION NO ONE AT HPD CAN TALK ABOUT!
The Insite hears the US Secret Service has interviewed the Houston Police officer who allegedly turned in their fellow officers for making a joke about President Barack Obama. I also hear HPD is now requiring the officer who made the allegation to take a lie detector test. I can’t get it confirmed from the public information officer with the department because as I’ve said before the officers are not relieved of duty so they can’t address the issue.
The Insite hears at least two possibly four Houston police officers are facing an internal investigation for bad jokes. That’s right jokes. Those officers are accused of making those jokes about President Barack Obama. Here’s what the Insite hears: The officers were having lunch when one said they should hang then President Elect Barack Obama. The second officer allegedly said well since he’s not President yet we should just shoot him. Then one of the officers said let’s just gut him. Now you see why these officers are under investigation. An officer in triaining allegedly turned in the veteran cops who made the joke. The Insite has heard from several sources in the department who are angry the officers have not been taken off the streets while the probe is underway. One source says a public servant shouldn’t be joking like this about the President. That person went on to say especially if that public servant is a police officer. Another source at the department is also upset the officers have not been taken off the streets during the probe. The Insite has not heard anything from HPD’s top brass on this issue as of yet. What do you think about the HPD cops little joke time?
