Florida Cop Takes to Facebook During Obama Speech and Wonders "Where's Lee Harvey Oswald?"
Sarah Coursey works as a road patrol officer for the Tavares Police Department up in Lake County.
Last Thursday, about 10 minutes into President Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention, she took to Facebook and wrote, "Where's Lee Harvey Oswald or John Wilkes Booth when you need them!?!? :)"
Oh, a smiley face. Nice touch. It lets everyone know that you're just sitting their smiling thinking about political assassination. Totally normal, sane people stuff to smile about.
According to The Daily Commercial, someone noticed the posting and sent a screenshot of it to Coursey's boss Tavares Police Chief Stoney Lubins. Stoney Lubins then ordered an internal investigation. Coursey meanwhile is on paid administrative leave.
The Secret Service also caught wind, and came down to Tavares to investigate.
