This was the response of one Officer Wesley Cheeks at a town hall meeting in Reston, VA. What was officer Cheeks responding to? One of the protesters had a sign that he didn’t like and told him to put it down (because officer Cheeks makes the law don’t you know). To this the protesters said â€œThis used to be America!â€, prompting officer Cheeks response.
Michelle Malkin has a video on her site of the incident. If officer Cheeks is heavily reprimanded then this is an ugly sign of the times.
Update: Wesley Cheeks Jr., is part of the Fairfax County Public Schools’ trained School Security Officer team and not a police officer.
