A veteran Phoenix cop threatened to put the city’s mayor in his cross hairs if she defunded its police department, a recently released police report shows.
The officer, Steven Poulos, allegedly made the comment during an Oct. 21 briefing with seven Phoenix officers, according to the report obtained Monday by the Arizona Republic via a public records request.
“If the mayor defunds the police, I’m going to shoot her,” Poulos allegedly said in reference to Mayor Kate Gallego, according to the Tempe police report citing his sergeant.
“You’re not going to shoot the mayor,” Poulos’ sergeant replied, ending the silence in the room following the officer’s comments, according to the report.
But Poulos only doubled down on his threat.
“That’s a promise,” he said, the report states.
And the outcome??????????????????????????
Has the officer been fired??? It usually takes a lot less to terminate!!!
A good friend was fired, after 40 years on the department, for saying, "some lives spatter", in reference to rioters being run over on the freeway!!!!!
