Remember the ‘Hot Cops’ following Hurricane Irma? There was talk about making a calendar of the cops. Well looks like 2018 will have one less ‘hot cop’ because one of these men is resigning.
The one in the middle is Michael Hamill, he resigned from the Gainsville Police Department on December 6, when he was supposed to appear for an internal affairs interview.
The post went viral because of the officers’ good looks. Before being removed, the photo had received 181,000 comments, 517,000 likes, and 276,000 shares.
Hamill became an officer in October 2016. But it was a few years before that when he made some precarious remarks that came across as anti-Semitic.
In April 2013 post, Hamill wrote: “Who knew that reading Jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well. Here is one for everybody, ‘What’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?’ Anybody know? Well it is because ‘Boy scouts come back from their camps.'”
On April 2011 Hamill stated: “So I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality, it’s YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”
Not only was he anti-Semitic he was also having sex while on department payroll. A report from internal affairs showed four dates between the period of February and April 2017. Seems he was also working as an Uber driver and had sex with a passenger.
