Oklahoma cop claims hacker left racist Facebook comment…

Earlier this week, "We The People Oklahoma" emailed the local media about a racist Facebook comment allegedly posted by Brandon Jarvis, a part-time Oklahoma policeman for the small town of Verdigris.

Check it out:

Yikes! That's disturbing on a couple of levels! First of all, what sociopath would use that font on their Facebook app? Second, why is an Oklahoma policeman leaving racist language in a Facebook comment? They're supposed to keep that deeply rooted racism and hatred to themselves, right?

I honestly don't know the answer to the first answer, and don't think we ever will. The answer to the second question is simple – his account was "hacked."

Via The Frontier:

A racist Facebook post which appears to have been made by a part-time Verdigris Police Officer will not result in a suspension, according to the town’s police chief, because the officer involved claimed his account had been hacked...

Jarvis is one of two part-time officers in Verdigris. There are six full-time officers, according to police chief Jack Shackleford. Shackelford said Jarvis would not be suspended, but would receive “some personal counseling by me in the use of social media.”

“If he is saying that his account was hacked, I don’t have any evidence to substantiate either claim,” Shackelford told The Frontier.

Jarvis could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening. According to pictures on his Facebook account, he appears to have previously worked for other law enforcement agencies in the state. One image shows him wearing a Chelsea Police Department uniform, and he makes reference on his account to having worked for the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office in the past.

Whew. That's a relief. For a second I thought we had a racist law enforcement official working in a small town Oklahoma police department! That would be crazy. I'm glad everything is okay now.

Anyway, I guess my only question is who hacked the account? Was it the work of fake news spreading Russians, or a vindictive gang of skinheads that Jarvis met at a heavy metal concert. If you know the answer, send us an email.
