News Station Exposes Chicago Cop For Calling Somebody A 'Libatard' On Facebook

Chicago Police Officer John Venckus has made headlines for his use of the word "libatard."

Chicago, IL - Chicago Police Officer John Venckus was recently exposed by the hard-hitting journalists at WBBM-TV for using the term "libatards" on social media.

WBBM reported that the incident happened on Monday, beneath a Chicago Breaking News Facebook post.

The Facebook page posted a Chicago Tribune news article about the Pearl Jam concert being delayed due to weather.

The concert was scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. but had to be delayed due to heavy rain.

That's when Officer Venckus dropped his bombshell comment.

"Good take cover libatards," he said, in complete disregard of punctuation.

Officer Venckus' comment failed to gain a single like or comment in the 15 hours after it was posted.

It's not clear who alerted the news station to the comment, but they took immediate steps to investigate.

WBBM was able to reach the officer by phone, who appeared to double-down on the use of "libatard."

Libatards are used all the time for people who are called liberals, he told the station.

The station also asked him about the nefarious meaning behind his post telling people to "take cover" under an article about heavy rain at a Pearl Jam concert.

Officer Venckus responded, "Just that it was raining, take cover.

Pearl Jam recently made headlines after releasing a concert poster which depicted a vulture eating President Trump's corpse. Many Republicans condemned the poster.

WBBM has reached out to Chicago PD to see if they are ready to discipline most of the officers in the department for saying things that other people don't like, but they have not yet received a response.

Maybe WBBM and Chicago police and government need to address a few more important things like the war going on in Chicago and the people being shot and killed every weekend? Its the stupid libtards in the Chicago media that think this should be more important than the war. Oh, and by the way, that 1st amendment that protects you so called journalists also gives us free speech!
