Baton Rouge Police Sergeant Chris Kuhn has been placed on administrative leave after it was discovered he was posting racist messages to an online blog, WBRZ reports.

The posts Kuhn made targeting Blacks, Asians, and those of the Jewish faith were posted under the screen name “Pesticide.” Investigators were reportedly able to trace the posts back to Kuhn due to a phone number that was linked to the screen name.

“I can attest that I have been in my fair share of black homes and let me just say this,” one of the posts read. “The overwhelming majority have really bad hygiene and cleanliness issues… What can you expect from a group that needs constant oiling to cut down on the ashy-ness.”

Another post was in regard to the question of whether he’d rather live under Hitler or Stalin.

“Hitler,” he wrote. “I’m German so I’m good.”

Kuhn also talks about sexually harassing and assaulting women, as well as other things of a sexual nature.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul released a statement this Thursday strongly condemning Kuhn’s actions.

“Make no mistake – making racist and insensitive comments like the ones I read in the complaint, is a terminable offense in the Baton Rouge Police Department Policy,” the statement read. “If our investigative efforts confirm that a Baton Rouge Police officer is responsible for the comments, I assure you, that individual will be held accountable.”

With poll numbers staying put and the odds of a Joe Biden win in Tuesday's election looking good — possibly by a decisive margin — there's mounting dread about how Donald Trump will behave after a defeat. After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.
