Florida Cop Shares Facebook Post About David Hogg — Now He Faces Disciplinary Action

A Florida police officer is facing disciplinary action after he shared a violent Facebook post threatening gun-control activist David Hogg, one of the survivors of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Coconut Creek Police K-9 officer Brian Valenti shared the incendiary comment in the wake of Hogg’s planning of a so-called “die-in” protest at Publix after he discovered the grocery store had donated to gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, whom Hogg labeled an “NRA sellout.”

The “die-in” consisted of protesters lying both inside the Florida-based stores and in their outdoor parking lots. As a result of the demonstration, Publix announced it would suspend its contributions to all political causes.

So what did the cop do?
Valenti, according to the Sun Sentinel, reportedly posted a comment under a photo of Hogg, writing that he hoped “some old lady loses control of her car in that lot.”

The 45-year-old law enforcement officer, a 23-year veteran of the police department, has since taken down his inflammatory comment, but not before an observer noticed it and took a screenshot of the post, which she forwarded to Coconut Creek commissioners and Police Chief Butch Arenal.

Rod Skirvin, a union leader and recently retired Coconut Creek detective, told the Sentinel Valenti is “distraught” over the incident.

“He feels terrible and is very willing to apologize in person,” Skrivin said. “We are going to speak to the chief on Tuesday when he goes back to work. There will be disciplinary repercussions for him.”

Arenal said Valenti’s comment was “meant as a joke” but admitted it was “in poor taste.” He added the officer “will be offering an apology, as he has indicated that he wants to do whatever he has to do to make it right.”

The matter will be investigated “more fully” on Tuesday, Arenal noted.

    He was not a survivor, but the news keeps getting it wrong. He was not even there, according to him he heard about it on the news and rode his little bikey 3 miles as fast as his little legs could pedal.

    Why does the media continue to call this kid, Hogg, a school shooting survivor? He was not in school the day of the shooting!

      Because it suits their narrative.Trash press like trash kids. I think there is more evil in Mr Hogg that will be lauded by the press in the future. HE WANTS HIS 15 MINUTES OF FAM

        No, He Wants His Fame To Continue Just As Far As The Liberal Left Can Push Him Because They Are The Ones That Are Funding Him And Giving Him His Directions To Follow. You Have To Give Them Credit For Using A 16 Year Old To Tell Their LIES For Them. It Just Goes To Show You Just How Far Liberals Will Stoop To Get Their Way.

    First of all the little Hitler is a lair because he wasn’t even there when the shooting took place. Just like Hitler he is being funded by others and in this case Liberals and Democrats to do all of this; I would never apologize to this Punk kid that is being used by Liberals and Democrats to do their Biding for them. By doing what David Hogg did at Publix was against the Law. He Held the store Hostage and prevented people from doing what they were there for. and to lay in the parking lot to prevent people from going about their business was illegal also but did he get arrested? No!!! He is the one that needs Disciplinary Action. First his parents should have taken a belt to his but and he should have been arrested for holding the store Hostage.

    Why are they still call him a “survivor” when he said he wasn’t there? You can’t be a survivor if you didn’t experience it.

    Also, he is stating a fact. What would happen if an old lady fails to see them? He is actually protecting them.

    If Officer Valenti cannot speak out then there is something severely wrong with the police department. Since when does free speech not apply to anyone but pajama boy Hogg and his CNN lapdogs?

      does free speech apply to NFL players or just to you gun loving Trump ass kissing racists?I have a hard time telling who is the adult on this site. All you idiots do is call people names like some 9 y.o. kids. Grow up & get outside sometime.

    How the hell is that threatening? Is he an old lady with a car? Now you get reprimanded for mere dreams? What a sad state we live in when people can lose their livelihood over a comment that means nothing other than a wish or dream.
