Florida ‘hot cop’ who went viral for his good looks is accused of writing anti-Semitic Facebook posts

Fun’s over, folks.

A Florida police officer who skyrocketed to internet fame this week for being one of the “hot cops” working during Hurricane Irma has been accused of writing anti-Semitic Facebook posts.

Gainesville Police Officer Michael Hamill reportedly made offensive jokes about Jews and wrote that “stupid people” should be put in an oven and dealt with “the Hitler way”, according to screenshots sent to the Gainesville Sun.

In one post dated April 2013, Hamill allegedly wrote, “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well.”

“Here is one for everybody, “What’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?” Anybody know? Well it is because “Boy scouts come back from their camps,” the post continued.

In another screenshot, Hamill rails against “stupid people”, concluding, “Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”

While Hamill’s Facebook account appears to have been deleted or suspended, screenshots of the posts were circulated on social media.

The police department issued a statement Thursday confirming the allegations against Hamill were under review.

Hamill, along with two other officers, sent social media into a meltdown after the police department shared a photo of them on Facebook announcing they were working through the night during the hurricane.

The post went viral, racking up more than 294,000 shares as social media users fawned over their looks.

Hamill joined the Gainesville Police Department in 2016.
