Facebook Posts Get CA Police Chief In Hot Water

Facebook has the strong ability to get people in trouble for 
posting stuff that they shouldn’t or principals making fake 
accounts to spy on their students. Most people get in trouble
 for the stuff that they have posted that disparages their teacher 
or parent. But what about if you are a public official commenting 
on the state of your department?
The police chief in the small delta town of Isleton, California 
is going through this reality right now
Isleton police Chief Steven Adams was put on paid leave
by City Manager Dan Hinrichs.
“He came in yelling at me and telling me to get out of the police 
department now,” said Chief Adams. “confused, frustrated, 
I didn’t know what to feel.”
When City Manager Dan Hinrichs was asked about why
 Chief Adams was put on leave he said that public 
complaints led to the issue getting to the point it was at. 
Chief Adams isn’t buying the excuse. “No, I don’t believe 
that because I’ve had nothing but support from the public.”
He believes that this is happening because he has been 
very vocal on Facebook about the department’s problems 
that include the Sacramento county sheriffs department
 taking over law enforcement duties in January due to 
workers comp not being paid by the city to its officers.
As of this time Chief Adams is placed on paid leave 
and it is not clear when or if he will be allowed to go back to work.
 Because he is on leave, the Sacramento Sheriffs department 
will have to take over services for the second time this year.
