A detective who served with the King County (Washington) Sheriff’s Office for 40 years has recently been fired for offensive memes and comments he posted on Facebook.
One of the things that got him fired was posting the following on Facebook…
This is allegedly in reference to two protestors who were hit by a driver on i-5 in Seattle last July. One of the protestors was killed.
The detective in question is also said to have posted the following in regard to the protestors being hit by a car.
“I see a couple people got infected with Covid-19 from the hood of a car on I-5 last night.”
The detective was placed on leave back in July. I was unable to determine if that was paid leave. I’m going to assume it was.
Even though the detective has been fired, he can still challenge the firing thanks to his police union. And if that doesn’t work, there’s nothing stopping him from working at another police department.
So, if he was investigating the vehicular homicide of the protestor, would he have blamed the protestor and closed the investigation?
Again, it’s supposed to be justice for all, not just justice for the right-wing.
