WQHT-FM DJ Peter Rosenberg had no patience for a caller on his radio show on Wednesday who identified himself as a police officer wanting to discuss the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling, Jezebel reported.
“As an officer yourself, it looks bad, no?” Rosenberg asked.
“You know, I will tell you that –” the officer says, before Rosenberg cuts him off.
“Can you say the words, ‘It looks bad’?” he asks, before criticizing officers for refusing to criticize one another even in cases like Sterling’s death, which has renewed the anger surrounding excessive force by police after footage surfaced of officers shooting him as he was being pinned to the ground.
Rosenberg argued that police should be leading the protests against such incidents.
“That’s what should happen instead of you struggling to say, ‘Well I don’t know, it could be,'” he said. “They murdered that man. We just saw it.”
Watch Rosenberg’s remarks, as posted by WQHT, below.

GOP governor blocks local officials from forcing private schools to only hold classes online
On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) is overriding a local order from Montgomery County restricting private schools to operating online only, as a safety precaution against the coronavirus outbreak raging in the area.
"Hogan issued an emergency order Monday that said private schools’ reopening would be up to individual schools and not mandated by the state," reported Madeline Charbonneau. "'The blanket closure mandate imposed by Montgomery County was overly broad and inconsistent with the powers intended to be delegated to the county health officer,' Hogan said."

‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.
"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"
