KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — A police officer in Florida has been fired for making social media posts supporting the Capitol riot and posting other comments considered insensitive. The Kissimmee Police Department fired Andrew Johnson last week. Johnson’s Facebook posts, on topics like the Black Lives Matter protests, the Capitol insurrection and the presidential election, were sent to the Kissimmee Police Department by a concerned citizen. Johnson was on probationary employment since he had only been hired as a patrol officer last March. Kissimmee, a diverse community that is more than two-thirds Latino, is located just south of Orlando.
