That's firable?How about sticking to the idea of terminating employees because of actions,instead of thoughts?.If the cop HAD shot someone,different story.If SJWs weren't digging around all the time for this kind of thing(or in the cops case,posting fantasies of what they'd LIKE to do to protesters),we'd be less prone to knee jerk reactions and unfortunate job loss.Still,what the cop's opinion is,is not a reason to terminate.
It's comparable to me--at my job--THINKING out loud about calling in sick every day for 3 weeks--and getting fired for thinking about it,although I didn't actually do it.
Have we seen any cops shoot live ammo at any of the riots?No.
Would most cops have preferred to use live ammo?Yes--and all still have jobs.This cop just put his thoughts online.Thoughts are not actions.
If the rule of law being followed is,"a mental picture is as punishable as the the actual action",100% of marriages would quickly dissolve into divorce.
The Alabama chief on the other hand SHOULD BE FIRED,for incompetence in failing to handle the situation correctly.Maybe he should have just posted a picture,showing the cop at an unemployment office--if this continues.
Either way,it's not firable imho.

I believe that a social media consultant must be attuned to the company goals and aspirations if he or she is to represent them on their social media channels. I also think that outsourcing social media marketing is a good idea for a company looking to specialize in their core business. In any case, most businesses outsource marketing and advertising and I don’t see why social media marketing should be any different. You just need to be actively involved to ensure that you are represented in the way that you want
