LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Several former law enforcement officers, including some from Southern California, are caught up in a scandal involving alleged online threats against an activist.

The alleged threats were made against activist and journalist Shaun King in a private Facebook group and has prompted several police agencies, including Long Beach and Inglewood, to investigate.

Long Beach police took to Twitter after recently learning that three former officers could possibly be involved.

The department issued a statement as a result, which read in part:

“The Long Beach Police Department is appalled and deeply disturbed by the tone and content of the posts … and will not tolerate any bias, racism, or threats to individuals.” Additionally, the Mayor of Long Beach said the city is turning to the FBI to investigate.

Inglewood police is also looking into whether one of their retired officers was involved. Up north, a Tracy police employee was fired over his participation in a private group chat, allegedly plotting to kill King.

    BLM stands for Black Lives Matter, right? Wrong. It’s a joke. It really stands for Black Liberation Movement. This is a longtime Marxist, Stalinist, Trotsky theory backed group that has been in power since the 50’s. If you go to the BLM website most of the sponsors and sub-sites are all Marxist backed groups. They are so pleased to see stupid American corporations to small business plastering BLM all over their premises. They want expropriation, reparations and eventually your soul. This is their goal. Get it lightweight lefties?

    Shaun wants all ‘white’ Jesus status torn down. This racist black supremacist should be arrested for inciting violence and vandalism.
