Mayor: "Unbelievable" - Officer: " It was stupid."

An internal investigation is being conducted after a Springfield  police officer allegedly left a controversial Facebook comment in  response to events in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend.  

Specifically, the officer was responding to a story about a  driver plowing into counter-protesters at the white supremacist rally,  saying "love this, maybe people shouldn't block the roads."  

Lariviere  has issued a statement to The Springfield Republican expressing remorse and calling his  comment "stupid."  

Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri says the incident may be reviewed by the Community Police Hearings Board.
