The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana this week received a complaint that one of its deputies is a self-proclaimed Proud Boy.
The complaint states that Deputy Sheriff Brian Green put on his social media accounts that he supports Proud Boys and is affiliated with a local chapter.
The Southern Poverty Law Center labeled the Proud Boys as a hate group, citing the group as anti-women with anti-Muslim beliefs.
"Established in the midst of the 2016 presidential election by VICE Media co-founder Gavin McInnes, the Proud Boys are self-described “western chauvinists” who adamantly deny any connection to the racist “alt-right,” insisting they are simply a fraternal group spreading an “anti-political correctness” and “anti-white guilt” agenda."
It is not clear what the feds can do as it is not illegal to be a member of the Proud Boys and apparently there is no departmental policy forbidding officers from joining controversial organizations.
"Today #ProudBoys Officer Brian Green will have a gun while on duty and is free to harass the public at large @PlaqueminesSO remains silent. #acab #Antifa"
Many have taken to both Facebook and Twitter calling for Green's termination and arrest by using the hash tag #FireBrianGreen.
The group has been rapidly growing along with another group called Patriot Pray since 2016.
This is not the first time a law enforcement officer or military officer has been tied to the Proud Boys.
In May, ProPublica and Frontline identified Vasillios Pistolis as a neo-Nazi who was also serving as a lance corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps and since been court martialed and convicted of disobeying orders and making false statements.
