A Colorado police officer has been placed on administrative leave after he posted a threatening message on Facebook that was aimed at people who voted for Joe Biden.

On Wednesday (Nov. 4), Officer Jason Taft wrote a lengthy Facebook status warning Democrats that they should be “afraid” and telling them to “meet me at the battle grounds.”

“If for some reason we lose, do we get to be little bitches and beat the hell out of the other party like they did?” he wrote. “Because they don’t believe in what we do. In fact, in case we actually let Biden win, there will be far fewer results than this year because we’ll help them find God.”

He continued, “Democrats you were scared of Trump, now’s the true time to be [afraid]. We will do what you have done to our [cities] and prevail. P.S. please meet me at the battle grounds.”

The officer also left a comment under his post saying that he was ready to leave his job as a police officer so that he can “hurt” people. “I’m ready to leave my job just so I can hurt these people [who] act like they know what real life is about,” Taft wrote. “They are a bunch of time out in the corner Billy people. They have no clue of the true [wrath] that’s coming. Dems you thought you made a scene or statement with BLM, just wait. This it will be fun.”

The officer later told voters who cast their ballots for Biden to unfriend him on the social media site.

According to The Denver Post, Platteville Police Chief Carl Dwyer said that he was made aware of the posts and Officer Taft has been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues.
