Police Chief in S.C. Resigns over Facebook Post

AZ Central, August 15, 2011

The police chief in Williamston has resigned after the mayor asked him to leave because of postings on his Facebook page.

Police Chief Richard Inman resigned Friday at the request of Mayor Carthel Crout, who said one post in particular showed poor taste and lacked judgment. He says that posting showed a photo of a portable toilet with handwriting that reads “Mexican spaceship.”

Inman told WSPA earlier this week that he thought the post was funny and not racially insensitive. He said he treats all citizens fairly.
