Geraldine police department assistant chief Jeff Buckles was forced to apologize on Friday after he posted a threatening message on Facebook this week claiming that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be bombed for tearing up Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech.
According to the Daily Mail, Buckles wrote the following on Twitter:
“Pelosi just ripped up his [speech]. Road Side bomb on her way home and any other Dumbocrats.”
According to the report, Buckles removed the post shortly after and claimed that he was “venting”
“I have definitely offended some people with my remarks,” he wrote. “It just rips my heart out that our great country is so divided.”
This isn’t the first time Buckles uses Facebook to spread his pro-Trump rhetoric.
According to the Daily Mail, in a post from February 4, he wrote, “I honestly believe that God has placed Donald Trump in the position to bring about prophecy. God Bless Trump. God Bless America.”
The Daily Mail reported the following:
In an announcement this Thursday, Geraldine Mayor Chuck Ables said that he and Police Chief Heath Albright will meet with the town’s attorney on Friday to decide what the best course of discipline for Buckles will be.
