An East Palo Alto police detective is taking heat in online forums for allegedly posting comments from his Facebook account that advocate shooting Open Carry gun advocates.
Detective Rod Tuason apparently made the remarks in response to a friend's status update, which joked that gun advocates who carry unloaded weapons in plain view as a political statement should start doing so in places such as Oakland, Richmond and East Palo Alto "and not limit themselves to hoity toity cities."
"Haha, we had one guy last week try to do it!" Tuason replied, referring to a Redwood City man who strolled into the Mi Pueblo Food Center in East Palo Alto on Jan. 27 with a gun on his hip. "He got proned out and reminded where he was at and that turds will jack him for his gun in a heartbeat!"
After several more comments in the thread, Tuason apparently joked that officers should shoot the advocates, who have made recent headlines throughout the Bay Area for sipping coffee at cafes and performing other everyday acts with visible weapons.
"Sounds like you had someone practicing their 2nd amendment rights last night!" Tuason wrote. "Should've pulled the AR out and prone them all out! And if one of them makes a furtive movement ... 2 weeks off!!!"

Stupid. I deleted all my dept. personnel off my page and made everything private. I recently was verbally reprimanded for stating on my facebook this exact quote. "Going work a detail tonight and watch some movies. Call me if you're bored." Yeah, I was told it was "dissimination of information" or however you spell it. Also told to never post about the dept. again. Nice huh....."In God we trust. All others we run through NCIC."

If that guy posted the things the article says he did, he's a fucking douchebag and should not be a cop.
He can think whatever he wishes to about someone's choices in exercising their rights, but advocating shooting them or jacking them up is criminal.I'm your huckleberry...

You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

I am not a cop, but I am a public employee. Nothing I post on my FB page is job related or identifies who I work for.Verified Libra- There sure are a lot of people born in August around here.
