St. Louis cop outraged after seeing white men doing manual labor at ‘authentic Mexican restaurant’

Published

A police lieutenant in St. Louis is under investigation after making a social media post that suggested only Latinos should do construction work at Mexican restaurants.

“I’m not sure what the hell is going on in our country these days,” St. Louis Metropolitan Police Lieutenant Jerry Foster wrote in a screenshotted post. “I just drove by an authentic Mexican restaurant in town; and there were white guys putting on a new roof, cutting the grass and doing landscaping.”

According to St. Louis’ KMOV, Foster did not mention the name of the Mexican restaurant that so offended him, but the tagged location and its proximity to his home suggested he was referring to Casa Romero, an establishment currently under renovation that hired white contractors.

Mike Lasky, one of the workers at Casa Romero, told KMOV he was shocked a police officer would post something so “insensitive.”

“It’s disturbing and I hate to see it,” he told the station, “but it just shows that it does exist and it’s sad.”

The report noted that the Mexican restaurant post was not Foster’s first time making controversial comments on Facebook. In 2016, he reportedly made a post deriding the “Democratic Criminal Party” after Lezley McSpadden, the mother of police-killed Michael Brown from nearby Ferguson, was invited to speak at the Democratic National Convention.

SLMPD told the news station that Foster’s comment is under investigation.

"But all that glitters is not gold," our narrator Rosamund Pike warns, as our American television star embarks on an alliance with a family that "will do whatever it takes to survive." Corny? Yes. Unsubtle? Absolutely. A deliciously soapy reality show involving a dysfunctional clan with posh accents? Sign me up.

‘On a fundamental level, Donald Trump does not believe in America’: ‘God Complex’ author Justin Frank

Published

on

Donald Trump is living breathing proof of the truism that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Such an outcome is made even more dangerous when the person in question has shown himself to be mentally unwell.

Two weeks ago, the Republican Party crowned Donald Trump a de facto king and dictator through his show trial and "acquittal" in the U.S. Senate. Trump and his regime's enforcers, agents, sycophants and other minions have taken that travesty as permission to launch a full-on assault on the rule of law, the Constitution, democracy and the American people.
