ASSHOLE DOES ASSHOLE THINGS; COPS SHOOT HIS ASS DEAD

Then one of the cops posts an emoji-laden comment on a picture of the asshole’s memorial.

Cop’s the one in trouble.

A police officer allegedly posted an image on social media with laughing faces plastered over a man who he fatally shot’s memorial.

San Diego police officer Jonathon Lucas and his partner Tevar Zaki shot Leonardo Hurtado Ibarra, 25, after he allegedly pulled a gun on them in downtown San Diego on June 27.

Ibarra underwent emergency surgery at UC San Diego Medical Center but died from his injuries on June 29.

After the shooting, Lucas was placed on administrative leave while police investigated, but he allegedly posted images on Instagram of Ibarra’s makeshift memorial with laughing face emojis on Thursday.

San Diego police spokesman Lieutenant Shawn Takeuchi said police Chief David Nisleit immediately ordered an internal investigation into the matter.

A screenshot of the post at the centre of the allegations shows a picture of the makeshift memorial which includes candles and handmade signs, including one that reads, ‘Justice 4 Leo.’

Over the image the word ‘#Eastside’ is written alongside emojis showing a series of faces either crying-from-laughing or streams of tears flowing from closed eyes.

It is not clear what the word Eastside is referring to.

A second screenshot shows the private Instagram account that posted the photo.

Cat Mendonca of United Against Police Terror San Diego, an organization that exposes alleged police misconduct and use of excessive force, said an Instagram user who wanted to remain anonymous shared the photo with the organization.

The user was following the account that posted the photo and said it belonged to Lucas, Mendonca said.

San Diego police are investigating whether Lucas posted the picture.

San Diego police spokesman Lieutenant Shawn Takeuchi told the San Diego Tribune: ‘We hold all officers to a high standard, including conduct that is done off duty or on personal social media accounts.’

Ibarra’s shooting sparked outrage across San Diego at the time, with protesters taking to the streets to express their anger at police brutality on June 28.

He was spotted walking down a sidewalk on the 1200 block of Sixth Avenue just after 5.45pm on June 27.

Lucas and Zaki, who have been with the force for four years, believed he matched the description of a man involved in a June 21 robbery because of his face tattoos, so they tried to approach him.

He dropped his shopping bags and ran away, the San Diego Police Department said.

While Ibarra ran, he reached into his waistband, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officers, police said.

Bodycam footage released by San Diego police a day after the shooting shows an officer approach Ibarra and say: ‘Hey man we need to talk to you for a second. Stop, stop.’

Ibarra appears to try to run away and the officer raises his gun before both officers begin shooting as the footage fades to black.

    Not sure this guy should be in law enforcement or not. You have to be a moron to do this kind of crap that you know will piss off the public. It’s kind of like flipping some asshole off in traffic. Most of the time you can get away with it, but eventually, you’ll come across some macho asshole with a small dick who only wants to prove his manhood by either running you off the road or pulling out a gun and blowing you away. Just not a good idea. The cop should have known better. Hel’ll probably get suspended, but who knows, maybe they’ll fire him over it.
