Shaun King Says Retired Long Beach Cops Cheered on Talk of Killing Him in Facebook Group
Long Beach Post
The high-profile activist Shaun King alleges at least two former Long Beach police officers participated in a thread on a private Facebook group for retired cops where members talked about how they could kill him.
In response, the Long Beach Police Department says it has requested help from the FBI to investigate, calling the posts “incredibly disturbing.”
Thursday morning, King, who is known for forcefully criticizing police, posted screenshots he said were from a Facebook group for California law enforcement officers.
According to King, a former LBPD officer named Laura Tartaglione started the discussion by sharing an image that said: “I think California needs to start putting a team together of retired military, police, and NRA Members. These criminals that the Democrats created need to be stopped.”
King shared screenshots he said were from other commenters that said “Shaun King needs to be put down,” “Toss this guy from a helicopter,” and “Need a sniper.”
