Ind. official out of job after tweet

INDIANAPOLIS — An Indiana deputy attorney general “is no longer employed” by the state after Mother Jones magazine reported he tweeted that police should to use live ammunition against Wisconsin labor protesters, the attorney general’s office said Wednesday.

The magazine reported Wednesday that Jeffrey Cox responded “Use live ammunition” to a Saturday night posting on its Twitter account that said riot police could sweep protesters out of the Wisconsin capitol, where thousands have been protesting a bill that would strip public employees of collective bargaining rights.

Cox also referred to the protesters as “thugs physically threatening legally-elected state legislators & governor” and said “You’re damn right I advocate deadly force,” according to the magazine. He later told an Indianapolis television station the comments were intended to be satirical.

The Indiana attorney general’s office said it conducted “a thorough and expeditious review” after the report.

“We respect individuals’ First Amendment right to express their personal views on private online forums, but as public servants we are held by the public to a higher standard, and we should strive for civility,” the office said in a statement.

Cox told Indianapolis television station WRTV on Wednesday his comments were satirical but acknowledged they were “not a good idea.”
