From the looks of it we don't have anything to worry about...

In September 2003, Fritts was one of six officers who opened fire at a suicidal man during a ‘suicide by cop’ encounter in September 2003, according to court records and Knoxville News Sentinel archives. The man was superficially wounded by one bullet, while the rest of the 28 rounds fired, including six by Fritts, missed the man.
In November, 2009, Fritts was off-duty and working private security when he fired twice at a man trying to flee in a car from a Kroger parking lot in Farragut after shoplifting, according to court to a sheriff’s office report and Knoxville News Sentinel archives. Fritts missed both times from close range, and the driver sped away, but was later arrested.​
Fritts was reprimanded for sideswiping an underpass to avoid a truck and for being late twice in a 10-day period, according to the newspaper.

LOL....sounds like a Trumpanzee alright. Not enough wit to know how to aim that pistol. Hell, I'm a civilian and with my pistol I can hit a grapefruit sized target from 25 yards away with near perfect accuracy.

Clearly, he was not meant for the job.

Pity is reserved for people who cannot help their situations. People like this intentionally mean to do what they do. They hurt a lot of other people and they mean to do it. "Pity"? No, Clara. People like this need to be shunned, told they are wrong in no uncertain terms, and rejected.

Being "nice" to or "pitying" people like this is why we end up with people like Trump for president. And we're seeing this kind of thing more and more.
You can pity a person's brokenness and tell them that their behavior is not acceptable. The two are not mutually exclusive.

The preacher's sermon is another indication that some people are bigots and don't believe in the biblical doctrine. Sure, the Bible says that homosexuals should be stoned to death and that they won't get into the golden cube. But, I doubt if he believes in the entire fairy tale. For instance, would he get upset at a mass killing? Would he try to stop someone from committing suicide or self-mutilation?

The Bible should not be used for moral guidance because it does not contain anything useful on that subject. Consider the lunatic Moses. He had a messiah complex and was always going on lonely trips to meet his imaginary God character. One day he got upset because the people wanted to have freedom of religion, so he had his thugs kill thousands of them. Why does he get a pass for his mass murdering and everyone else who does it get busted?

King Asa did the same thing = The Brick Testament 6 pictures.

Maybe a mass murderer had a chat with his imaginary deity and killed the people because they were "sinners"? Isn't that biblical?

And if a person wants to chop off his hand or gouge out his eye or jump to his death, why should he be stopped? Jesus approved of that, saying that it is better to lose an offending body part that for your whole body to end up in hell
(Matthew 6: 30).

If the preacher really believed in the biblical fairy tale, he would follow the instructions in Deuteronomy 13 =
The Brick Testament 5 pictures.

So, it is evident that most, if not all, so-called believers really don't believe in the entire biblical fairy tale. They just pick out the parts that support their discriminatory actions against people that they personally hate. The preacher is an example of such a person.

The problem is- he's not a lone wolf:

Mr. Ewing says Imam Farrokh Sekaleshfar, an advocate for killing gays, was invited to speak in Orlando. He forgets to mention Christian Pastor Kevin Swanson, who advocates killing gays. (Huckabee, Jindal, and Cruz attended his 'Freedom 2015' knowing this.) Or televangelist Ben Bailey of the "Gospel of Christ' TV program preaching God commands Christians to stone gays and prevent women from teaching. Or Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez telling his congregation the Orlando massacre was "great" and "helps society." Or Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church agreeing 100 percent with Romero. Romero advocates the death penalty for gays. Or Steven Anderson of Tempe's Faithful Word Baptist Church applauding the Orlando massacre and calling for the death of all gays. Or Pastor Curtis Knapp of New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, who wants the government to put gays to death. Or Jeff Smith, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Florida who equates homosexuals with serial killers, rapists, and child molesters. Or Pastor and Republican Andy Gipson in Georgia whose Facebook rants include saying gays, according to Leviticus, "are to be put to death." Or Lake Independent Baptist Church Pastor Dennis Leatherman’s fifty-minute sermon titled ,“Homosexuality and the Bible,” where he describes his struggle not to kill gays.
Let's count Christian ministers who've advocated death for gays

For every one of those, you have to imagine that there are many, many more people who think the same way.

Church videos with harsh words for gays go viral online
