Cop says he was fired for reporting officers who threatened President Obama and First Lady

 A policeman in Richmond, Virginia says he fired for telling a local news stations about threats that other officers made against President Obama and Michelle Obama.

The whistleblower reported that the veteran suggested the officer “take a couple of shots . . .” and that another voice in the background talked about planting a bomb under the stage.

     The Secret Service investigated and found no criminal act, but the two officers were fired amidst the furor. The fired officers have been fighting to get their jobs back.
