Our citys county deputy assessor Larry Stein recently shared a not-so-nice opinion regarding the Ferguson, Missouri, protests.
He posted to his Facebook: There hasnt been this great of a racial divide in America since the 1805s. Congrats to the thugs and animals in Ferguson.
Yeah, theres this thing called the First Amendment. He posted it to his own page. The post has been removed. He replied via email to KFOR.com with this comment: I have removed my private personal thoughts, shared on a webpage, that proves some people have very thin skin and may try to bully those who speak things they dont like to hear.
In other words, You cant handle the truth! (Read out loud in the voice of Jessep (Jack Nicholson) in A Few Good Men.) Many readers disagreed, and some even called for his resignation.
Social media expert Patrick Allmond told KFOR.com: Theres no on the record, off the record anymore when youre on social media. You are always on the record.
