San Antonio Police Detective Joseph Fech was suspended for 30 days over a social media post in which he asked when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and racial justice advocate Colin Kaepernick could be killed, KSAT reports, citing SAPD records.
“When can we kill this terrorist sympathizer?” the station reports Detective Fech posted on Facebook after Kaepernick condemned a U.S.-ordered drone strike on an Iranian general. “Terrorist sympathizer = terrorist in my book.”
KSAT reports that it received a screenshot of the January social media post and asked SAPD officials about it.
Disciplinary records show the department slapped Fech with a 30-day suspension in late June, according to the report.
The detective served the suspension from early July through early August.
The detective made his post in response to a pluralist.com article about Kaepernick saying the U.S. military committed terrorism when it killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, according to KSAT.
