The Savannah Police Department fired officer Edwin Myrick after he put up a post on his personal Facebook page that violated the department’s internet usage rule and code of ethics.
Myrick had copy and pasted the status from somewhere else and says that the post was not about race but more about him.
“For someone to just assume what I am feeling inside my heart as racism because I am a white police officer is frankly very disappointing,”
“If you take an employee and you just terminate them without having some kind of dialogue of intent, then you’re really doing an injustice to the city of Savannah and you are unbelievably destroying the morale of the police department,”
– Edwin Myrick
Chief Minter said that Myrick violated the department’s internet usage policy and also violated the department’s policy to not talk disrespectfully about any race.
The post that got Myrick fired was also shared by Bloomingdale Mayor Rozier. After city officials saw the post they called for Mayor Rozier’s resignation. He was initially going to resign and then changed his mind.
