AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Association says they’re concerned about what they’re calling hateful words found written on a door of a convenience store in South Austin. A few days ago, an officer was taking a report at the business when he walked in to use the restroom and found “Shoot the cops, oink oink bang bang, black lives matter” written on the door to the restroom.

“I’m pretty disappointed that it was not reported by the actual business itself and it’s unfortunate to have an officer uncover that,” says Austin Police Association President Ken Casady. “People are certainly allowed to give their opinion, but when you call for the death of people, that is absolutely not acceptable.”

While authorities don’t know who wrote on the door, a criminal mischief report has been filed.

“Sometimes police departments do deserve criticism. I’m not saying we’re perfect, but you should never ever call for someone’s death or assassination,” says Casady.
