Michigan prosecutor’s office reported that assistant prosecutor Teana Walsh resigned after posting on Facebook that people ‘assaulting police officers in Baltimore should be shot.’
Fox2Detroit reported that Walsh has since deleted the post on her personal Facebook page which said ‘So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see large swarms of people throwing bricks, etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults … 15 in the hospital already.
‘Solution. Simple. Shoot ’em. Period. End of discussion.
‘I don’t care what causes the protesters to turn violent…what the “they did it because” reason is… no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.’
At least 15 people voiced their approval by ‘liking’ the comment, Fox2Detroit reported.
Walsh changed her mind about the post and deleted it, but not before enraged local attorneys recorded and shared the post.
Miller said in a statement to WXYZ ‘This afternoon Assistant Prosecutor Teana Walsh called Prosecutor Kym Worthy to announce that she is voluntarily resigning her position with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. Prosecutor Worthy has accepted her resignation.
‘During her tenure in the office Teana Walsh has been known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families. Her post was up on line briefly and she immediately took it down. The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know.’
The Detroit News reported that Walsh spent eight years as an assistant prosecutor.
Prior to Walsh quitting, she was ‘disciplined,’ according to the newspaper.
