Ariz. Police Sergeant In Obama Photo Flap Reassigned
February 01, 2012
A Peoria (Ariz.) Police sergeant under internal investigation for posting a controversial photo on Facebook has been taken off patrol duty pending a complete inquiry, Chief Roy Minter Jr. told The Republic.
The photo, which has since been removed, along with Sgt. Pat Shearer's Facebook profile, featured seven students from Centennial High in Peoria, with one holding up a T-shirt with an image of President Obama riddled with bullets.
The Facebook photo was posted Jan. 20, days before the president's visit to the area.

Face book strikes again! This is the reason why I don't have a Facebook account. But when the stock goes IPO that's a different story.

Facebook is trouble when you don't use it the correct way. A person in any type of law enforcement agency should know better than to post undesirable junk against any type of government official or even your superiors in the law enforcement. Shame on you! Use your head for more than just a hat or cap!!!!
