A Texas police officer was fired for posting a picture of himself in nothing but his undies, which had the confederate symbol.
So it may not have been the smartest move for Shannon Dildine, a police officer in North Charleston, to upload a picture of himself posing proudly in Confederate flag boxers on Facebook.
It’s unclear when the photo was posted, but the city learned of the photograph on Tuesday. Police Chief Eddie Driggers sent Dildine a letter explaining why he was being let go on Wednesday, The Post and Courier reported.
“Your posting in this manner led to you being publicly identified as a North Charleston Police officer and associated both you and the Department with an image that symbolizes hate and oppression to a significant portion of the citizens we are sworn to serve,” the letter read.
Dildine had served on the police force since 1996. He has 10 days to appeal the firing.
I hope that undie pic was worth it.
