Buffalo Police Lieutenant Michael DeLong Suspended for NSFW Insult

Buffalo Police Lieutenant Michael DeLong was suspended today after flipping out on activist Ruweyda Salim while she was filming him at a convenience store. A large group of cops had gathered to deal with a visibly intoxicated mentally ill man. Salim repeatedly questioned DeLong about the number of officers on the scene. Salim thought that there were way too many of them for dealing with just one crazy guy. She also shouted at the man to let him know that he did not have to tell the cops anything. Eventually DeLong turned to Salim and said “you’re a disrespectful little f*ucking c*nt that’s what you are!”

Salim responded to his insult by telling him that it would go viral, it has. It also got DeLong suspended for violating a department rule against using “harsh, profane, or insolent language.” You can hear the profane language in the video below at about 1:40 or check out Ruweyda Salim on Twitter at https://twitter.com/ruweyda_salim/status/1277679569961652248
