A New Orleans police officer has been suspended for posting a comment on a local television station's website about the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

On the site, Officer Jason Giroir suggested the Florida teen died like a "thug."

The officer wrote, "Act like a thug die like one!" in response to a WWL-TV article about a rally supporting Martin, who was shot and killed last month by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas announced Monday that Giroir has been suspended indefinitely without pay.

Giroir was already under investigation for his role in the March 1 shooting death of a 20-year-old man.
