Alabama Police Captain Resigns After Saying Biden Supporters Should Get ‘A Bullet In Their Skull’

An Alabama Police Captain has resigned after he wrote a Facebook comment that called for all Biden voters to be shot in the head.

According to WKRG, Flomaton Alabama Police Department’s Captain Scott Walden wrote the violent call to action in response to another person’s post which dubbed all Biden voters “idiots,” among other things:

“The idiots that voted for Biden hated Trump enough to throw the country away. Thank the lying liberals and democrat news media.”

Walden’s response escalated that anger to full-blown violence:

“they need to line up ev1 of them and put a bullet in their skull for treason”

A screenshot of the exchange was shared by WKRG.

Apparently, Walden’s comment quickly raised eyebrows and outrage began to bubble up around Facebook. He posted a longer paragraph attempting to clarify his prior call for execution.

True to form, it began threateningly. 

“Well apparently someone, and I know who you are as well as the others jumping on the “gonna get them fired” train is circulating a comment I made about TREASON.” 

Walden then concocted a sprawling argument.

“The comment even says TREASON but someone has run rampant saying I was meaning liberal n Democrats.”

“Well #1 I don’t care who you vote for, #2 the comment was about treason and what should happen to the ones who are charged for committing treason.”

“So either you trying to stir the pot or you are ok with someone committing treason but not ok with someone who says they should be shot. This is the world we live in.”

But for all those capital letters and repeated uses of the word “treason,” Walden’s clarification did not put him in the clear.

The Flomaton Police Department informed that Walden was placed on Administrative Leave and a further investigation was underway.

In response to the announced investigation, plenty of people on Facebook expressed their own outrage.

Those commenters were likely happy to hear that, as WKRG shared in an update, Walden eventually resigned on 11/6, the following day.

It’s yet another story showing that social media and the digital age have seriously moved the needle toward accountability.
