Iowa police chief suspended for urging drivers to ‘hit the gas’ on protesters

An Iowa police chief was suspended for two weeks without pay on Monday for a Facebook comment he made targeting local Black Lives Matters protesters.

Sioux Rapids City Council delivered the suspension to Sioux Rapids Police Chief Tim Porter in a unanimous vote after the top cop admitted to writing the post, KTIV reported.

Porter commented in all caps “hit the gas and hang on over the road bumps,” in a June 21 video posted to Facebook showing a truck driving through a crowd of protesters in Des Moines.

In a statement to the news station, Porter apologized and said the comments were meant for separate post.
