The St. Louis County police officer who was recently suspended after video surfaced of him threatening to "kill everybody" and who shoved CNN's Don Lemon on live television in Ferguson has retired. Officer Dan Page, a 35-year veteran of the force, had his last day on August 25th. Sergeant Colby Dolly, aid to the St. Louis County Police Chief, told msnbc by phone that Page is expected to receive his full pension. 

Officer Page was suspended from the force on August 22, after an online video surfaced of him threatening violence and criticizing President Obama, Muslims and LGBT people. 

The officer's pension has not yet taken effect.
