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.

Adam Schiff: Under ‘No Circumstance’ Should Trump Receive Intel Briefings After January 20

But Schiff should??

John Salvatore



Adam Schiff is no fan of Donald Trump – this much we’ve known for some time. His latest tirade against the current Commander in Chief, however, may have crossed a line. As chairman of the House Intel Committee, Schiff worked diligently in an attempt to have Trump impeached, with his secretive methods drawing major criticism from the Republican Party. Now, with President Trump less than 72 hours away from civilian life, Schiff is looking to send a parting shot across his bow. From Breitbart: House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that there was “no circumstance” under which President Donald Trump should receive intelligence briefings once he leaves office. Schiff added, “I don’t think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future, he certainly can’t be trusted. Indeed, there were any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn’t trust the president would safeguard that information and protect the sources and methods. That makes us less safe. We’ve seen this president politicize intelligence, and that’s another risk to the country.” President Trump’s next moves aren’t exactly clear. Some seem to believe that Donald Trump will find his way into the media sphere, perhaps even launching his own news station. Others have suggested that he could announce his 2024 candidacy on the day of Biden’s inauguration, which would essentially “freeze out” other potential candidates.
