SAN DIEGO, CA (WWBT/KNSD) - A San Diego police officer sparked some controversy after she posted a photo on Instagram dressed in riot gear at a Donald Trump rally on Friday.
"Waiting waiting waiting!! Just riot already people!!! #waitingsucks," the photo's caption said. It is unclear what time the photo was posted.
Some were upset by the photo the unnamed police officer posted.
"It sends a really bad image for the San Diego Police Department and we want answers," Trump protester Michaela Glover told KNSD. ""It looks like they were taking that as a joke, and our lives are not a joke. Our safety is not a joke."
"They post 'come on riot already so we can use this equipment against you,'" said Cathy Mendonca of United Against Police Terror. "That's pretty much what the message was."
A San Diego Police spokesperson released a statement saying, "Thank you for bringing the private social media post of one of our officers to our attention. We will look into this matter immediately."
