Two officers lose jobs in wake of Ferguson unrest

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – Two former police officers are looking for new jobs.

Thursday, an officer from St. Ann resigned and a Glendale police officer was fired. Lieutenant Ray Albers was caught on cell phone video pointing a rifle at protesters in Ferguson and threatening to kill them. Albers resigned after the video surfaced, although he said bottles of water and urine were thrown at him before he made the threats.

Glendale officer Matthew Pappert was fired for comments he made on Facebook. Last week Pappert wrote that the protesters should be “put down like rabid dogs”  and that they were “a burden on society and a blight on the community.” Pappert was fired after an internal investigation.
