Florida 'Hot Cop' Accused Of Making Anti-Semetic Jokes On His Facebook Page
Just yesterday, we told you about the handsome Gainesville, Florida cops that shared a selfie, and inspired a whole lot of thirst on the internet.
Unfortunately, one of those cops has been accused of making anti-Semitic jokes on his Facebook page.
More from The New York Daily News:
Gainesville Police Officer Michael Hamill reportedly made offensive jokes about Jews and wrote that “stupid people” should be put in an oven and dealt with “the Hitler way”, according to screenshots sent to the Gainesville Sun.
In one post dated April 2013, Hamill allegedly wrote, “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well.”
“Here is one for everybody, “What’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?” Anybody know? Well it is because “Boy scouts come back from their camps,” the post continued.
In another screenshot, Hamill rails against “stupid people”, concluding, “Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”
Hamill has reportedly closed his Facebook page.
The Gainesville Police Department issued a statement yesterday, indicating that they would investigate the allegations made against the officer.
UPDATE: TIME is now reporting that Officer Hamill has been suspended.
One of the three Gainesville, Fla. "hot cops" that went viral for their looks earlier this week has been suspended after the Gainesville Police Department received complaints regarding anti-Semitic posts on Facebook.
Officer Michael Hamill, who told TIME on Wednesday that he's "never had this much attention before," allegedly made the remarks on his personal Facebook page, the Gainesville Sun reported Thursday. In response, the Gainesville PD issued a statement Friday that Hamill had been suspended with pay.
"GPD is reviewing the allegations and will do so in accordance to Florida law and department policy," the statement reads, adding that the department "takes these allegations extremely seriously."
