An Ohio police officer was placed on paid administrative leave after allegedly calling the suicide of a Black Lives Matter activist a “happy ending” in a Facebook comment. The post has since been deleted.
The Fairborn Police Department has a strict social media policy that prohibits officers from writing anything on social media while on duty. Officer Lee Cyr was off duty at the time of the alleged post in question, but Fairborn Police Chief Terry Barlow told the Dayton Daily News that posts with the potential to “discredit the police are also against department policy.”
