BREITBART — An Idaho police officer who became an internet sensation after mocking LeBron James for a tweet targeting an Ohio cop has been fired.

The announcement comes via a statement posted by the mayor of Bellevue to Facebook on Thursday.

“During the week of May 20th, while on shift Deputy Marshal [Nate] Silvester violated several clearly established City of Bellevue and State of Idaho Policing policies,” Mayor Ned Burns wrote. “After his previous policy violations Deputy Marshal Silvester was placed on probation and was on, what is called, a ‘last chance agreement’ with his superior officers.”

Burns continued, “Because of his continued policy violations, the Marshal has terminated Mr. Sylvester effective May 27th, 2021.

“The policy violations have nothing to do with the tone or the tenor of his speech that he posts online. He was not terminated for the content of his speech; he was terminated for his failure to follow clearly laid out and well established policy,” Burns explained.

Burns does not, however, explain what that policy is. […]

  1. Great Video, the raw truth to boot. Should Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti be fired for the 2018 Mandated Slavery Disclosure Document sent to me (in writing) on the CLA Portal, demanding I answer 4 questions in effort to retain my then 14-year long Private Contract for LAPD/LAFD?

    Q1: Do you own slaves?

    Q2: Have you ever owned slaves?

    Q3: Do any of your employees, associates, clients own slaves, or have they ever owned slaves?

    Q4: Are you currently contracted and/or bidding on any contract to provide security or investigative services on “The Wall”?

    This, apparently because I am a classed white male. Given I answered No to all 4 questions, I was extremely offended that any government agent or entity would draw such false inference absent any evidence to support it. I dropped the contract thinking, “If they can’t do this to me as a private contractor, what in the world are they doing to their Police Officers and Fire Fighters who work and serve under the heavy thumb of an employer/employee relationship?”

    F…n Politicians.

    Spot-on Sylvester, Spot-On.
