Call Of The Day: Demand Officer Rispoli Is Fired

Charlie Rispoli, a Gretna police officer of more than 13 years, has posted on his Facebook page that U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “needs a round.” You can read the NOLA.com article here.

As Rafael Goyeneche, president of the watchdog Metropolitan Crime Commission, said, “The police are held to a higher standard of professionalism. Even if this is not actually advocating somebody shoot someone, it’s totally inappropriate for a law enforcement officer to make this poor attempt at humor.”

One call to make: Gretna Chief of Police, Arthur Lawson (504-363-1700)

Sample script:

Hello. My name is [Your Name].

I'm calling to demand that Officer Rispoli is removed from the Gretna Police Force. It’s clear that Officer Rispoli’s Facebook posting regarding a U.S. Representative is grossly inappropriate for someone in the public trust.

Thank you.
