California police officer fired over ties to Proud Boys extremist group

A California police officer associated with the far-right extremist group Proud Boys has been fired, officials announced Friday.

Rick Fitzgerald, then an officer with the Fresno Police Department, allegedly participated in a Proud Boys counter-demonstration on March 14 outside a theater being sold to a church that protesters said was hostile to the LGBTQ community and marriage equality.

Fitzgerald was placed on leave the following day, and his firing was made public Friday by Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer and police Chief Paco Balderrama, following an investigation.

“It is clear to me there were egregious violations of department policy,” Dyer said in a statement. “I am pleased that Officer Fitzgerald will no longer be serving as a police officer with the City of Fresno.”

Balderrama, citing the Southern Poverty Law Center, called the Proud Boys a “hate group” and said in a statement, “I stand by and reassert my prior comments in strongly disapproving of any police officer affiliating with hate groups.”

  1. Aw, yes. And there it is. The beginning of government oppression and the end of the constitution. what most people do not know is that the department policy is in line with recently passed California legislation which prohibits freedom of speech both on and off work premises. There is no evidence the police officer acted violently or had anything to do with any unlawful violence. What he did is violate department policy which prohibits freedom of speech, even off duty. “Hate speech” is still speech. What constitutes “hate” speech is in the eye of the beholder. I think it the Southern Poverty Law Center spews hate speech every time they say something. Just about everything they say I consider to be offensive and hateful to my personally held moral beliefs. Why are they not required to shut the hell up? The California liberal government is on a rampage to control speech and to end freedom of speech. This is just the beginning.

watcha gotta say?
