According to the letter, Garcia acknowledged the account belonged to her, but said a friend put the phrase in the Twitter bio in 2015. At the time, they were young and did not know what it meant, she said. Garcia was 21 at the time.

Kinda hard to believe that...

If what she says is true, and she is (or at least was) genuinely unaware of the implications of proudly declaring herself to be a member of the KKK, then she should be fired and permanently barred from any sort of gainful employment for being dumber than a cast iron parachute.

/she's lying
//she should be (and was) fired both for being a lying liar who lies, and for knowingly and willingly claiming to be a member of a racist organization
///and she should be permanently barred from from any sort of gainful employment for being a racist shiatstain, forced to live in the streets for the rest of her life except for whenever she's jailed for vagrancy/violating anti-homelessness laws

She's a cop and claiming she was too naive at 21 to know any better.

Does that work as a defense in Florida?  They let people go for being 21 and not knowing that stealing a car is bad?

Waaay back when I was a college freshman there was a 'yearbook' of incoming freshmen & everyone got a chance to put a note in there about their interests (the 'survey' was mailed out to everyone a couple of months before school started).  One girl/young woman who got a LOT of interest from people had as her hobby...gangbangs & giving beejs...

She stood up in the 'getting to know you' assembly/function & announced to everyone that her little sister had gotten her mail & sent it in ... alas.

Point being she didn't wait until graduation & then say "Oh yeah, I had no idea that happened..."

"There's all the talk of 'Back the Blue,' but not one person had my back," she said.

Did you try having a penis? That seems to help with getting support from the thin blue line.

It is great that this is happening, that a racist piece of shiat cop is being fired before killing anyone without facing consequences. It is disgusting that it took this long for this to be a thing, but with this and other recent events I hope the scale is tipping. I hope governments and more importantly unions see that there is more to lose by protecting these public servants that should be held to a higher standard of conduct than there is to lose by cutting them off.

"There's all the talk of 'Back the Blue,' but not one person had my back," she said. "I feel helpless and like I'm drowning. No one was willing to just listen to my story, and I feel like the university was just trying to cover their butts. ... That's not something I believe in. That's not how I was raised."

Hey all! She is the victim here. See? I'll say one thing - she has the whining part down pat. Way better than some of them.

According to this documentary I saw they weren't allowed to be direct members but their support in logistics was invaluable.

Due to the historical accuracy of the documentary it is definitely NSFW:

All they have to do is ask if they voted for trump.  That's the same as any klan member.

People, come on! Why is nobody listening to the racist's side of the story here???

/you are correct with that whining part!
 
2020-08-15 3:20:21 AM  
Eh, if you take her story at face value, she is getting kind of a raw deal.

One question is, why did this come to light in the first place.
 
2020-08-15 3:20:34 AM  
She was in the Kool Kid's Klub.

If you take her story at face value she is an idiot and should be fired for being too dumb to be in law enforcement.

See, pretending to be part of a white power hate group is so funny LOLOLOLOL

Yeah, sure, everyone jokes about that kind of thing at 21, totally. So, hilarious.

If hanging out with immature friends at 21 is worth hosing someone's entire career over, maybe.  I'm glad I don't face that kind of irrelevant scrutiny.  It wouldn't go well for me.

I'd rather focus on actual abusive cops, thanks.  Everybody is an idiot every so often.

Ah yes, Garcia, a proud Anglo Protestant name of royal heritage.
 
2020-08-15 3:57:21 AM  
And her last name's Garcia? Lady, I've got some bad news for you, and it's regarding your shelf life at a klan meeting.
 
2020-08-15 4:45:21 AM  
Where do people like her go, for their second chances? How do they clean up their lives once somebody blows up their spot?
 
2020-08-15 4:46:27 AM  
I could believe it was put there jokingly and ironically, that's the kinda of dumb shiat people in their early 20's do. I get that. I don't believe for a second her bullshiat excuse that she didn't know what it means however. That's a straight up lie.

If you're choosing to pursue a career in the public sector, much less law enforcement in this day and age, and aren't managing your online persona, your judgement is simply too poor to be trusted. And Twitter, of all platforms, is by far the dumbest place to do that sort of thing, inherently being little more than an outrage amplifier.
 
2020-08-15 5:02:15 AM  
This is like a racismception, with multiple layers upon layers of racism in this department.

RATM was wrong. MOST of those that work forces are the same that burn crosses.

"Since the incident involving George Floyd, dissident members of the community have targeted law enforcement officers, their departments, their families and their homes."

I'd like to extend a special 'fark you' to USF Police Chief Chris Daniel for that one.
 
2020-08-15 5:14:59 AM  
Sadly, my own real world experience leads me to believe that this level of ignorance is not impossible.

I saw someone with double lightning bolts in their online dating profile once... Yes, she was surprised when I pointed out that, uh, *ahem*, double lightning bolts were the symbol of the Nazi Waffen SS and immediately changed it.

When I was in high school (80s) there was a particular girl there that was rumored to give beejs for $5.
I don't know if it was actually true, I grew up relatively poor.

That's a shame.

White Southern girl. She knows about the KKK.
And the excuse of 'her friend added it to her profile', is right up there with 'it's not mine, I'm holding it for a friend'.

If only I had a nickel for every time a "friend" edited my social media profiles to say I was a white supremacist...

....named 'Garcia', no less? Poor social media management skills, regardless. Any cop that unobservant and sloppy with details has no business on a police force to begin with.

They usually start at Burger King and apply for to Community College in "Not Law Enforcement"

It's somewhat of a job requirement.
 
2020-08-15 7:30:15 AM  
Garcia told investigators she did not know anything about Twitter other than trying to log in once to delete it, the letter said. She said she deleted the app on her phone and thought the account would expire as well.

Nevermind not knowing what KKK member meant, this is a whole other layer of stupid
 
2020-08-15 8:03:55 AM  
Sheesh guys just say it's not your account even if your username is your last name.
 
2020-08-15 8:21:59 AM  
Is she hot?
 
2020-08-15 8:38:42 AM  
So she is a racist or incredibly stupid. Of course it is most likely both.
 
2020-08-15 8:48:57 AM  
Waaah.
Cancel culture.
Boo hoo.
Liberals real racists.
*Sob*
 
2020-08-15 9:01:05 AM  
Her last name is Garcia.  She's aware that the KKK aren't real big fans of the Messicans, right?   Jeebus, the dumb just gets bigger and bigger...
