A Massachusetts Police Department has launched an investigation after an officer wrote “Hahahaha love this” in response to a story about a man plowing his car through a crowd of counter-protestors at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. leaving one dead and several injured.

Indeed people (and the police) continue to show the worst sides of themselves.

Springfield, Mass. Police Commissioner John Barbierri said that he got a complaint about the Facebook comment on Sunday and opened an internal investigation, the Associated Press reports.

The officer, identified as Conrad Lariviere wrote a caption in response to a story about the violence, “Hahahaha love this, maybe people shouldn’t block road ways.”

Of course, as soon as he was identified, Lariviere went on an apology tour claiming that he’s a “good man who made a stupid comment.”

Pro-tip Conrad. Good men don’t go making jokes about cars plowing into people. Why don’t you explain how good you are to the family of Heather Heyer who lost her life in that incident? Why don’t you explain what you meant to the families of those 19 people who were injured?

Lariviere’s comment drew swift backlash even from Democratic Mayor Domenic Sarno, who blasted, “There is no place for this in our society, let alone from a Springfield Police Officer.”

Damn straight.

James Alex Fields Jr., the man who is accused of being behind the wheel when the car rammed violently into the peaceful crowd is expected in court on Monday for various charges, including second-degree murder.
