Whistleblower fired for revealing cops threatened Obama while protecting himFebruary 22, 2013
A Richmond police officer who reported fellow cops for allegedly threatening President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama has been fired from his job on the force.
WTVR on Wednesday confirmed that the officer, who did not wish to be named, had been called to police headquarters where he was terminated on Tuesday.
The officer blew the whistle on a 20-year department veteran and other members of the Richmond force after they made inappropriate comments while providing protection to the president and first lady.
He said that the supervisor made those comments to a sharpshooter on the day of the president’s visit to Richmond.
