Sheriff’s Deputy Calls Teens ‘Thugs’ and ‘Animals’ on Social Media, Here’s What Happened Right After

Bit of an overreaction going on here…

Richland County sheriff’s deputy Lt. Phil Tessier is in a whole lot of hot water after making some controversial statements on social media about teens involved in specific criminal incidents, referring to them as “animals” and “thugs.”

The comment seems fairly similar to one made by President Trump a few weeks ago concerning the MS-13 gang, which is one of the most violent crime organizations in the world. The president referred to them as “animals” and the left immediately twisted this into something racist.

Here’s the lowdown.

The comments were made on a Facebook post recalling an incident from Saturday night at the Village at Sandhills where a large crowd of teens was fighting in the area. The incident’s aftermath was shown on the popular A&E show LIVE PD and originally investigated as a shots fired call. Despite the investigation, no one was found injured and no gun was ever recovered.

The context of the post written by Richland 2 School District board member Monica Elkins – which has a number of shares and likes – and speaks on the sadness of the incident and how the community could come together to stop them.

The comments attributed to Lt. Tessier have since been removed or deleted but not before screenshots were taken and shared on social media.

The comments, allegedly made by Lt. Tessier, say: “Ok they are not children. Going to the Village at Sandhills to watch fights, that is gang and thug mentality. Animals.”

Commentor Jenny Nelson responded: “This is your attitude as a law enforcement officer? Animals?? Thugs?? I am sick.”

In response, Tessier defended his comment saying their behavior puts other citizens lives at risk and told Nelson she was “entitled to your opinion.”

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s department spoke with the media and confirmed Tessier was the one who made the comments and that he was being put under disciplinary measures for his “stupid and inappropriate” comments.

Have we really become so sensitive  that when a man speaks his mind, tells the truth, and even uses restraint — many other folks would’ve called the kids much worse — in describing wickedness, it has become “stupid and inappropriate?”

It’s understandable the department wants to maintain a healthy relationship with the community and thus expect their officers to be above reproach in the public eye, but this seems just a tad bit excessive.

Sad times when you can’t freely speak your mind.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
