Detroit Business Owner in Hot Water Over Facebook Posts Telling Cops to Kill Themselves (Video)
Tim Idzikowski posted the anti-police comments on Facebook this weekend after two police officers were gunned down in New York City.
A Detroit business owner is in hot water for posts he made on his Facebook page, blasting police.
He has since hired a public relations firm to help with the fallout.
“I want to apologize,” says Tim Idzikowski. For the past 5 years, he has co-owned the Detroit BBQ Company.
Following the shooting deaths of two NYPD officers, in retaliation for the recent killing of an unarmed black man there, Idzikowski posted this of cops:
“How many times did they think they were going to kick the hornets nest before they got stung? These guys “can’t breathe” now either.”
When Detroit cops started responding to his post he replied:
“2 cops get killed and it’s a (expletive) tragedy but you guys can run around killing people without fear of any reprisals because of your (expletive) badge and it’s business as usual?”
“Why don’t you try suck starting your service pistol.”
Once this became public, it got the attention of the Detroit Police Department and its union.
“With respect to those who make disparaging comments to law enforcement–that’s their own personal cross to bear. Our nation should be coming together, not fighting one another,” said Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association.
