That is surprising. Does he get a suspension or any type of punishment?http://www.ktvu.com/news/24334872/detail.html
EAST PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The Police Chief of East Palo Alto Tuesday night issued a statement saying that one of his detectives engaged in inappropriate behavior when the officer criticized people who legally carry unloaded weapons in public.
Members of a group supporting the right to openly carry weapons turned up at the East Palo Alto City Hall to protest an investigation they said was taking too long.

The situation was defused when Police Chief Ronald L. Davis announced the results of the internal investigation concluding Detective Rod Tuason's conduct was "unbecoming a police officer."
Detective Tuason came under fire for a Facebook comment in which he suggested police officers should detain or even shoot open-carry advocates legally holding weapons in public.
"Being a police officer that you're responsible for things you do on duty and off duty," said police spokesman Captain Carl Estelle. "Those comments have been found to... violate departmental policy."
The chief has not indicated what the penalty will be, but Detective Tuason could receive a letter of reprimand or even be suspended for a time. However, he will not be fired.
"I'm ecstatic about the decision," said Adnan Shahab, a member of the Open Carry advocacy group Responsible Citizens of California.
