A Kansas police officer has been fired after threatening a five-year-old child on Facebook following the Dallas police attack.
Rodney Lee Wilson worked with Overland Park Police Department in Kansas, Buzzfeed reported on Monday.
“We’ll see how much her life matters soon. Better be careful leaving your info open where she can be found 🙂 Better hold her close tonight, it’ll be the last time,” Wilson posted below LaNaydra Williams’ picture of her daughter.
Williams, who lives in Texas, said she didn’t know the man, had no ties to Kansas, and was not sure how the stranger found her Facebook page.
Williams immediately looked through the profile of the man who threatened her child and was surprised to see photos of a person in the police uniform. She reported the incident to Overland Park Police Department, which first said that the officer’s profile was hacked.
The department first thought that Wilson’s Facebook account might have been hacked. But the inquiry led to the truth that it was Wilson who posted that comment.
