Missouri cops gone wild

I guess having to don uniforms which look like they were designed  for warriors going into mortal combat against fire breathing dragons and driving vehicles which look more like mini-warships, can change normal human beings into thinking they have become Iron Man.

From NYMag:
Amid the ongoing tension in Ferguson, two St. Louis–area cops have been suspended for making hateful, racist remarks. It's worth noting that both of these guys spewed their respective garbage under their own names online, which indicating that they weren't too worried about getting in trouble for it. 

The first offender is St. Louis County officer Dan Page, who initially gained notoriety by pushing Don Lemon as he reported from a Ferguson demonstration earlier this week. 

Unsurprisingly, the CNN anchor made it his business to look into Page's background. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that after reporting Page's behavior to St. Louis County police chief Jon Belmar, Lemon directed his attention to a video of a disgusting speech Page made to a group called the Oath Keepers of St. Louis and St. Charles. First posted to YouTube in 2012, Page's hour-long talk rant included his take on black people (whom he called "little perverts"), President Obama ("that illegal alien claiming to be president"), gay people ("sodomites"), Muslims ("they will kill you"), and his own willingness to kill people. "I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord savior, but I'm also a killer. I've killed a lot. And if I need to, I'll kill a whole bunch more. If you don't want to get killed, don't show up in front of me, it's that simple. I have no problem with it. God did not raise me to be a coward," he explained. You can watch the whole thing below, though we don't recommend it.........
