The Bexar County Sheriff's Office has placed a deputy on administrative leave and yanked his Texas Peace Officer's license while it investigates a now-deleted Facebook post that appears to advocate killing looters.
In an online statement, Sheriff Javier Salazar said the deputy, who worked at the jail, faces an internal affairs probe and has surrendered his badge, credentials and county property.
Although Salazar didn't identify the deputy by name, a BCSO spokeswoman confirmed that the investigation involves a deputy named Justin Silva.
We don’t usually put much stock in national food holidays at the Current, but in some cases, not celebrating would just be a sad day for everyone. Namely any of the booze-, chocolate-, bacon- or taco-related holidays, but we digress.
