Sheriff’s Dept Posts Meme Glorifying the Murder of Protesters—Claims It Was an ‘Accident’ – Free Thought Project
A community is outraged after a Facebook page for the Sheriff’s Office made a post glorifying people mowing down protesters—All lives splatter.
Chelan County, WA — The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office issued an apology this week after they say an employee ‘accidentally’ made a post of a meme to their Chelan County Emergency Management Facebook page depicting protesters getting mowed down by a car.
The tasteless post wrote, “I don’t wish harm on anyone…but protesters don’t belong in the road!” with an illustration below that said “All lives splatter … nobody cares about your protest.” It comes only weeks after Alex Fields drove into a crowd in Charlottesville, killing Heather Heyer.

After making the post, it was deleted and Sheriff Brian Burnett wrote an apology noting that the employee had accidentally shared the post.
arlier this date, the Chelan County emergency management Facebook page displayed an inappropriate post, which had been sent to a noncommissioned employee’s personal account. The employee accidentally “shared” the post onto the emergency management’s Facebook page. Staff at Chelan County emergency management feel terrible that this inappropriate and hurtful post made it onto the Facebook page. The posting was removed as soon as staff realized the error. Changes have already been made in procedure to assure nothing like this will occur in the future. This post does not reflect the views of the Sheriff’s office and we trust the public will continue to follow us during emergency situations on our Chelan County emergency management Facebook page.
