OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – Overland Park police are investigating an online post allegedly made by one of their officers that appears to be threatening a child.

The Kansas City Star reports reports the Facebook post was apparently made by an officer from his personal account after the killing of police officers in Dallas. The post was on the page of a woman who had posted a picture of a small child.

The officer allegedly posted this: “We’ll see how much her life matters soon. Better be careful leaving your info open where she can be found 🙂 Hold her close tonight it’ll be the last time.”

The department said Friday in a statement it’s investigating the post “reportedly made by one of our officer’s” and that the department doesn’t tolerate discrimination or threats.
