MA Cop Accused Of Celebrating Charlottesville Violence Online

A Massachusetts police officer is learning the hard way that popping off on Facebook can get you in trouble with your boss. Meet Conrad Lariviere – he works at the Springfield Police Department - and he offered a fairly shocking comment about 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Of course, that's the young woman who was killed along with the 19 others injured when a car plowed into crowds during clashes between white supremacist groups and other protestors: “love this.” He wrote, adding - “Maybe people shouldn’t block roadways.”

And while Lariviere says he’s “a good man who made a stupid comment and would just like to be left alone,” his employer appears to be taking a different view. An internal investigation is underway, and other city officials are also ticked. "There is no place for this in our society, let alone from a Springfield Police Officer," Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno said in a statement. "I stand by and commend Commissioner John Barbieri's steps for a thorough internal investigation and review by our Community Police Hearing Board to pursue the appropriate discipline against said officer."
