Demand Springfield Officer Lariviere is Fired for Comments & Praise of VA Terrorist Attack

This petition had 3,038 supporters


"People around the world were horrified when news broke that, amid this weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, a man drove his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and wounding at least 19. The attack, which by all indications was committed by a Nazi-sympathizer, was widely condemned.

Except, not by Springfield Police officer Conrad Lariviere, who appeared to laugh at the victims of the attack on social media.

“Hahahaha love this,” Lariviere wrote in a since-deleted Facebook comment below a post about the incident by conservative writer Ben Shapiro." Credit Boston Magazine Article: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/blog/2017/08/14/springfield-conrad-lariviere-charlottesville/

How can a person who holds and openly displays this much hate and disregard for human lives serve and protect all members of the public? How can the public put their safety in the hands of a person who praises terrorist acts and rallies for hate?  

This petition demands:
  1.  That Conrad Lariviere issue an equally public apology as he displayed his hate, to the victims of this atrocious terrorist attack.
  2.  That he be removed from all duties on the Springfield Police Department.  
  3.  The Springfield Police Department launch an investigation into his record and any previous complaints or allegations of wrong doing.
