The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports:
A Chelan County emergency services worker posted a disturbing joke to the county’s Facebook account, kidding about protesters being rammed three weeks after a Virginia protester was killed by a driver who did so. The worker managing the county’s emergency services Facebook account posted a crude cartoon with an illustration captioned: “All lives splatter … nobody cares about your protest / Keep your ass out of the road”
Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett apologized for the post on Monday, saying the non-commissioned employee intended to share it only on a personal account. “Staff at Chelan County Emergency Management feel terrible that this inappropriate and hurtful post made it onto the Facebook page,” Burnett wrote in the news release. “Changes have already been made in procedure to assure nothing like this will ever occur in the future.”
Chelen County is in the center of Washington state.
