    Va. Capitol Police sergeant placed on leave after antifa group posts allegation about him


    Virginia Capitol Police announced Wednesday it had placed a sergeant on leave after local activists published allegations that he "has an affinity" for symbols associated with white supremacists.
    In a press release, the Virginia Division of Capitol Police said Sgt. Robert A. Stamm is on paid administrative leave pending a review of possible violation of department policy.
    “There is a review policy in place, and we will follow that policy,” Col. Anthony S. Pike, the department's chief, said in the press release.

    On its blog Tuesday, Antifascists of the Seven Hills, a leftist self-described "militant" group, posted Stamm’s name, links to social media accounts in his name and a description of his tattoos and interests listed under those accounts.

    The activists on the blog post said Stamm's social media activity suggests he follows the Asatru Folk Assembly. The blog says Stamm is friends with people who claim to be associated with the group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as a "hate group” blending northern European paganism and ethnocentrism.

    The local antifa activists say Stamm caught their attention over the weekend as he and other officers were monitoring protests calling for the removal of Gov. Ralph Northam over a racist photo on his page in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

    Is it something in the water in Virginia? Or is it just the proximity to DC?

    This guy sounds like a scumbag--multiple pro-Nazi tats and associations--including tattoos associated with the Waffen-SS division "Das Reich." If he violated department policies, he should be fired. At any rate, this isn't anyone any of us should hope would be a police officer.

    On the other hand, should unpopular beliefs be a fire-able offense?
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    In general, no, but if your unpopular belief makes it so that you cannot be trusted to do your job? Yes. Additionally, we shouldn't hire JW's to do blood transfusions, Muslims to ring up alcohol sales, atheists to teach in Christian schools, and white supremacists to serve and protect.

    In this case though, the technicality looks like a violation of department policy rather than belief.

    A) That's really on them whether their convictions allow them to do that
    2) It might not be a bad idea, as they might be less likely to steal the alcohol or give it to their friends.

    That's the thing: If YOU want to buy a beer and a package of bacon and muslim refuses to sell it to you because it violates their beliefs, they shouldn't be doing that job.
