A corrections officer in Buffalo, New York has suspended – after calling for his “faggot” neighbours to be executed.

Richard ‘Rick’ Pilarski Jr, who was a cell block attendant for the Cheektowaga Police Department, made the comments on Facebook.

He was writing after an anti-gay activist in California filed a ballot measure for a ‘Sodomite Suppression Act’ – which calls for gay people to face the death penalty.

According to the Buffalo News, Pilarski wrote: “Wouldn’t this be the greatest thing in the world??? The guys around the corner would be the first 2 faggots in my sights. What you do in your house is one thing but when you fly flags of equal rights and the rainbow flag in a small quiet neighborhood is another.”

When challenged about his comments, he wrote: “… shut up you sound like a retard u wana love gays u love them I hate them. I’m not raising my kids to love them if you wana raise your to then go ahead.

He continued: “Why are we talking bout the flags again the article is about gays being shot unfortunately my neighbors are homos we wouldn’t know if they didn’t hang flags…”

Assistant Police Chief James J Speyer of Cheektowaga Police Department said the officer had chosen to resign when challenged about his conduct.

He said: “It should never have happened. We don’t condone it. The Cheektowaga Police Department stands for integrity, honor and respect.

“We brought him in today and he decided to resign from the position.

“He was remorseful and apologetic. It is one of those situations where he never intended it to be something that would come out.”

A spokesperson for the New York State Correctional Officers & Police Benevolent Association declined to comment.
