A St. Louis County police officer, who pushed a television journalist on live television in Ferguson, Mo., and was recently suspended after a bigoted videotaped rant, has retired, the Huffington Post reports.
The officer, Don Page, served his last day with the force on Aug. 25, MSNBC reported Friday. A representative of the St. Louis County Police Chief told the station that Page is expected to receive a full pension. It was not stated how much he would received.
Page was suspended Friday while the department reviewed a questionable video speech in which he hinted at his future as “a killer” while making a range of incendiary remarks about Muslims, women, gays and President Barack Obama. He was recorded during a speech at the Oath Keepers of St. Louis and St. Charles.
Page came under fire during protests after the police shooting death of unarmed Michael Brown, 18, by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9 in Ferguson. Page reportedly pushed CNN journalist Don Lemon live on television. Lemon later uncovered Page’s bigoted video rant.
