Democrat Candidate for Ohio House Referred to Police Officers as “Murderers,” “Monsters” and a “Death Squad”

BOWLING GREEN—Recently uncovered Facebook posts by Aidan Hubbell-Staeble, the Democrat candidate for Ohio’s 3rd House District, reveal that he has described police officers as “murderers,” “monsters” and even as a “death squad.” He also shared a Facebook post earlier this year that alluded to law enforcement as being racist.

Hubbell-Staeble’s comments, posted over the past three years, appear to have been deleted from his personal Facebook account shortly after being nominated for the 3rd District seat by the Wood County Democratic Party. The 3rd District covers all of Wood County.

“Our police officers are heroes who deserve respect, but Aidan Hubbell-Staeble clearly views them much differently,” said OHROC spokesman Brad Miller. “Aside from running for public office, he is clearly also trying to run from his past remarks, which are derogatory and offensive towards brave law enforcement officers. These radical views do not belong in the Ohio House of Representatives and do not reflect the values of Wood County residents.

The anti-police Facebook statements, shown below, were posted July 6, 2016 and December 8, 2017. The post he shared was dated May 21, 2018.
