Earlier this week, the Internet was nearly brought down by a photo of three cops.
They were employed by the Gainesville Police Department and they were on their way to assist victims of Hurricane Irma.
Also, they were attractive. Like, really, REALLY attractive.
As a result, nearly every woman with a connection to the World Wide Web wanted these hot heroes to use their handcuffs for reasons that went beyond law enforcement…
… if you know what we mean.
One of these police officers is named Michael Hamill – and it turns out he’s living proof that one can be both handsome and hateful.
We hate to be the ones to break this to you. But it’s true.
Some sleuthing by The Gainesville Sun has turned up old Facebook messages written by Hamill in which he comes across like a proud member of Team Nazi.
“i find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality its YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and so something with your life,” he wrote in 2011, actually adding:
“Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. put them in an oven and deal with them the hitler way. haha”
Ummm…. LOL? We guess?
Actually, no: we guess not.
Another post from 2013, which was shared by Facebook users and attributed to the officer, said the following:
“reading jewish jokes before i go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well.”
Did he have a Jewish joke to offer at the time? He sure did!
“here is one for everybody: What’s the difference between boy scouts and Jews?’ anybody know?
“well it is because ‘Boy scouts come back from their camps.’”
Get it? Because the Jews were killed by poisonous gas inside of their Nazi-run concentration camps! Hilarious, right?!?
Hamill is yet to comment on these controversial posts.
A Gainesville Police Department spokesman said in a statement on the department’s Facebook page that they were “reviewing the allegation” and that an any information about the complaint of anti-Semitism was confidential until the investigation comes to an end.
“The Gainesville Police Department prides itself with our philosophy and mission of compassion, inclusion, and respect and will fully review the matter,” the statement says.
“I’ve never had this much attention before,” Hamill told Time Magazine on Wendesday. “It’s an ego boost – very flattering and funny.”
“My wife, she obviously wasn’t happy at first, but she’s taking it like a champ.”
