A Boston-area police officer is facing criticism for a Facebook post he shared that seemingly condones bombing Muslims.
Medford police officer Jason Montalbano was facing scrutiny on Wednesdy for a recent Facebook post he shared that depicts an atomic bomb’s mushroom cloud captioned with, “Japan has been at peace with the U.S. since September 2, 1945. It’s time we made peace with Islam,” Fox 25 Boston has reported.
"You can’t be a neutral officer on the street if you have these ideas about a certain group of people,” Medford Mayor Stephanie M. Burke was quoted by WCVB. “So, it’s not acceptable.”
Montalbano has also drawn the attention of the Washington, D.C.-based Council on Islamic Relations, which has released a message indicating they are concerned over the officer’s social media post, Fox 25 added.
