On Friday, Police Chief William McManus of the San Antonio, Texas Police Department, announced that something rare and exciting had happened: a white cop managed to get himself fired. No, he didn’t kill anyone — that sort of thing only gets one of the Boys In Blue paid leave (and if the victim is nonwhite, they sometimes even get a freakin’ medal) — but he did do something so reprehensible that even the Great Blue Wall could not protect him.
According to McManus, former officer Matthew Luckhurst had been with the department for five years when he bragged in May that he committed a “vile and disgusting act” with a homeless man. Fellow officers became concerned when Luckhurst bragged that he gave a homeless man a sandwich with feces in it.
According to the police chief, Luckhurst said he picked a piece of sh*t up off the ground and placed it between two slices of bread ,and shoved it into a container before giving it to the disadvantaged man. One of his coworkers whom he told of his deed said Luckhurst should retrieve the container, but it is unclear if he did. At least two officers reported the incident to superiors.
McManus says authorities have attempted to find the homeless man, but their efforts were unsuccessful.
It is unclear whether or not Luckhurst will be charged with a crime, but a Facebook page called “Matthew Luckhurst is my hero” has popped up to lobby to have the disgraceful officer returned to his position.
The anonymous “deplorable” behind the page complains that “everyone seems to be pissed off that Matthew spit on this pathetic bum” because the homeless are ” a nuisance to business, annoying, they smell and are losers” as well as are a “disgrace to the human race.” The anonymous page admin whines that the homeless — “scum” as he lovingly calls them — “quickly want money and food” and says that anyone who has a problem with literally giving them sh*t to eat should not “call a fkn cop when you need one!”
“Matthew is innocent, their is no proof of said incident, no cameras , no video no audio NOTHING,” the page owner writes, despite that Officer Snoogums admitted to doing it.
