Future Cop Says Americans Who Film Police Should be Exterminated in “Gas Chambers” 48


We’ve just received reports that members of Cop Block were targeted with what appears to be a violent threat, possibly a death threat, from an upcoming sheriff.

copblock.org

Cop Block is a decentralized organization that promotes police accountability by going out and filming cops to document abuse, as well as by engaging in acts of civil disobedience.

“If you were a law abiding citizen you wouldn’t have any problem with 5-0, but something tells me you were probably being a jackass towards a police officer and you got what was coming to you, and that inspired you to make a page giving a bad name to all law enforcement,” says the individual who posted the threat.

He then says that he would beat citizens who film cops, for “sheer joy” and adds that he’s about to train for a position in the Washoe County Sheriffs department.

“…I hope some cop beats your ass next time you’re “protesting” or filming them or whatever. In fact I’m about to start the training academy for the washoe county sheriffs dept in reno, Nevada and I can’t wait to deal with punk ass bitches like you. I would beat your fucking ass just for the sheer joy of it.”

To make matters even worse, he thinks Americans who protest and film cops should be rounded up and exterminated in “gas chambers.”

“If I had my way, there would be another holocaust with camps and gas chambers full of fucking cunt scabs like you. I hope you die.”

Friends, do you want this guy roaming your neighborhood with a loaded pistol?

Cop Block has identified the individual as Darren Redding and copy/pasted the threat in its entirety to their Facebook page, stating ”While it’s rare that we receive direct death threats, they must be taken seriously, especially when they come from someone… who is about to become a Law enforcement agent / Sheriff.”

Update (01/13/14): Veterans and Former Police Support Cop Block, Respond to the Threat

Darren Redding, the soldier and soon-to-be cop who made the threat, has received needed criticism from Marine veterans and former police who support Cop Block.  Here is what they had to say.

Response from Marine veteran: …I just want to point out something you should have already known as a Marine, Something that every single member of the Armed forces knows. Actions have consequences…

You served our country, and you want to do more by serving your Local community. I get that. But like myself, you swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, Against ALL enemies foreign and domestic. Your response paints a picture that you want to violate your oath and deny the rights of over 86,000 people who like Cop Block. People who do not want to crush the police or hate them. People who want Law enforcement to uphold the law, respect and defend the rights of the people they are sworn to protect, and not abuse the power they wield for some sense of personal power.

As a Veteran I support the Cop Block page because I support the Constitution. I support this page because I believe that as a republic we should venerate the just and punish the guilty, regardless of Rank, Title, or if they have a badge.

This little rant you posted came across as a death threat. In the age of digital distribution a screenshot of this will kill your resume when your prospect employer googles you. It will kill your credibility in a court of law when you need to testify as the defense lawyer will have dirt on you that clearly shows that you are a cop who thinks he is above the law and is out to crush all dissent.

Response from former police officer: I’m one of CopBlock’s biggest fans and a former Police Officer from Texas. A lot of cops are corrupted by stress and power at some point in their career. The real losers are the wannabees who should never have such responsibilities in the first place because they lack maturity and personal integrity.

The most unintelligent thing a potential cadet candidate could possibly do is to mouth off in a public forum on the internet and alert the people he wants to work with that he is entirely unfit for consideration for training.

Goodbye loser, your big mouth just cost you a career and saved the public from having to deal with you in the future. Oh- not sure about Nevada, but in Texas you might be prosecuted for “making a terroristic threat” in this situation. Idiot.

    The officer is also reported to browse the notorious domestic terrorist site http://4chan.org/pol

    • GestapoKitteh

      Really? You think 4chan’s political board is a domestic terrorist site? HA! You’re funny.

  • Simon Philogene

    Seems a lot of police in America are emulating Tackleberry from police academy

  • David Otto

    search him on – Darren Redding Reno – you’ll find him there’s pictures of him in camo send him a message and tell him he should not be a cop. Then send the sheriff of Washoe County a message too. Put little bitty Darren in his place. He can become a security guard at a Casino – I pity the Casino.

    • Husker

      “5’10″ 170lbs” according to a football profile linked to his name. I’m trembling.

        He has a napoleon complex….or a baby dick. Either way hes over compensating for something.

        • Will

          why would you insult napoleon ? this guy is just a typical cop present or future. this guy is exactly who they are looking for.

    Funny…
    I had treats on my facebook page and have been reported several times for
    posting a police brutality link to Google about cops on steroids and saying
    cops should be jailed for killing people and their dogs. I also
    have been told the steroids are not dangerous, in the same posts. I block the
    one posting the treats, I went to all my friends list one by one and delete the
    other possible offenders, as it is not possible to find out who is reporting
    you. (At last I do not know how to do it if it is possible)

    • joe below

      Treats are yummy.

      • Rebecca Kleitz

        Come on, man–don’t be a dick.
        Obviously it’s a typo–it happens to the best of us.
        You know what she meant(threats).

    “If you were a law abiding citizen you wouldn’t have any problem with 5-0″

    The irony. It burns! It burns!

      I don’t know Darren personally but he does not live here. The address posted above is my house.

      The Redding family used to rent the place though…

    • caaarl

      nice job asshole now this random person is going to get hate mail

  • Dan

    And if you were a decent cop you wouldn’t have problems with people filming you. Something tells me you were being a power hungry asshole towards someone and you got what was coming to you. I would put a bullet through the head of cops like you for sheer joy. I hope you get murdered the next time you threaten anybody. In fact, us civilians can’t wait to deal with punk ass bitches like you.

    I bet that faggot wouldn’t come to detroit and try that shit lol… He would be with the rest of his fallen brothers on a wall somewhere… That’s why I love my city assholes like that get gunned down around here.

    • timpundit

      Some of us ‘faggots’ support Copblock too, and work hard against unconstitutional practices by police. We’re on the same side. Don’t make it impossible by being a bigot.

  • Adam Alkouri

    The rules of the internet are proof or it’s fake. I see no proof here, no video or audio, so this never happened.

  • J

    I imagine that the conversation would go something like this: “Hello, I would like to report an incident, where I observed someone claiming to be one of your officers, a Darren Redding of Reno NV, and having personal knowledge and information of Darren Redding, is making physical and possibly life-threatening threats online. Here is the link to what I saw: “www. ….” If this person, is the officer Darren Redding in question, then an ethics hearing would be appropriate to determine if making threats of physical-assault and abuse of power, is behavior becoming of a peace officer.” And then they will probably want you name… I think that the suggestion of the ethics hearing may be far more effective than suggesting charges be filed, because the standards of evidence for an ethics hearing would be much lower, and it does not require the cooperation of a DA.

  • Jack Johnson

    during the gun control dark days here in Australia 60% of the decent cops quit in disgust rather than lock up decent folks , but there where a few like this guy , i’d like to remind this officer what happened to them , those who did not dissappear , never to be seen again , were sorted when the govt changed , 150 gaoled , 6 for life never to be released , 3 royal commisions , yeah a few walked away to live in fear and hiding , but the vast majority of thug cops .. well , it thought the sharks ate all the evidence , just no-one really knows eh .. too bad , so sad ..

  • Lou Travels

    according to Washoe County Sheriff’s Internal affairs, this man is neither a recruit, nor would they accept someone with his philosophy as a recruit.

  • STORM

    REALLY? Bring that shit…you fucking moron! You’re the only PUNK ASS BITCH I SEE!

    • Steve Fenton

      Kinda hard to bring anything to you when you’re hiding behind a fake name. Us punk ass bitches sign with our real names!

      • Mooseface

        Some people use an alias for their safety. Get over it.

        • Steve Fenton

          “Safety”, eh? another word for it is COWARDICE. Because then they feel free to spout off and hide behind their anonymity. But I’m glad to see you obviously used your real name; most people don’t have the balls to.

  • #ZOMBIESQUAD

    this is why people go on murder rampages. smh. be safe reno. arm yourselves from idiots like this.

  • Jon Dawes

    Here is the response I got when I contacted the sheriff’s office:

    We appreciate your taking the time to contact us with your
    concerns. Mr. Redding is not a Deputy Recruit with our agency. We have

    “The comments in this post

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CONFIRM OR DENY THIS STORY?!

    Sent an e-mail to the county sheriff’s dept and this was their response

    Face it UNPOPULAR speech is what Free Speech laws are about, so he has EVERY right to speak no matter how extreme his words, but HOPEFULLY, Darren’s words were purely tangential and said out of rage and not from sound mind and; hopefully, after the tidal wave left him he could admit that is was not what he REALLY feels . .. because if it is then he needs to be FIXED before he goes into PUBLIC SERVICE work . .

  • teamscoach

    I like that many are pointing out to this ass-hat that he/she took an Oath to defend the Constitution of the united States of America against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. What I haven’t seen is anyone point out that with his/her statements accompanied with his/her first action to carry out his threat(s), he/she becomes that ENEMY… then it becomes our duty to defend against that enemy.

  • Stan Sands

    The guy claims his Facebook account was hacked and that he did not write that threatening post. Might need to be some more investigation on the matter before judging things. He has posted a death threat against him as an example of the threats against him. So maybe time for all parties to stop the death threats and have a good old fashioned discussion about what happened from the start. It is the internet and as I know from having had my Facebook and Gmail accounts hacked just a couple months ago, it must be quite easy for a person who knows what they are doing.

  • dagobarbz

    Unfit to serve, like my psycho ex-brother in law who tried to get into the San Diego police department. His character was similar to this guy’s; he was eager to swagger and wield a tonk. He was weeded out early and expelled from the program, thank goodness. So he went on to make speed for the Hell’s Angels and thence prison time.

  • Ryan

    I’ve seen a number of reports claiming this is a hoax and that this darren guy’s profile had been hacked. he isn’t even a cop in training

    if they got nothing to hide then they shouldn’t be afraid to be taped. See it works both ways

    reno is sick i live in NY now born and raised in NV some of those police officers but not all are sick i seen it with my own eyes in they shot a homeless man down at the park by the movie theaters because he wouldnt listen to them and the man had major mental health issues and he had nothing in his pockets they sure did sweep that one under the rug pretty quick and RPD just love loves to search peoples shit for no reason just because they have a badge and get kinda of hostile with you when you tell them no you cant look in my stuff without warrent and then they try really hard to find something so they can. I have been told by an officer in reno. look do you want to go to jail? i said no i didnt do anything wrong im just trying to explain why my friend was sitting on his bike and walking on the side walk with it the officer said then shut the fuck up i dont want to hear you speak i will take you to jail. at that point they wanted to look in my purse and ID me just for standing there Im not allowed to tell the cop to shut the fuck up i dont know how these officers get off talking to people like that and down town reno there are so many police officers its like an army of bike cops its rather disgusting because they ride around on there bikes doing little curb tricks and bunny hops bullshitting with each other all day

  • Mary Jo Bradley

    Karma is a bitch, this guy is the type that will get pulled over for a speeding violation, mouth of to the cop, and get his butt kicked. Can see it already. He has a lot of growing up to do.
