On the Badge Boys Podcast. Police Officer Roger Ballard is just one of many cops targeted and fired for private social media posts that cop-haters subjectivity deem are insensitive. [The circumstances surrounding an “insensitive” social media post that was taken down soon after the officer realized it was being misunderstood is full of points to discuss, in a departmenta context, a professional context, and even a social context.  One point made early on is that social resentment won’t change if the sources aren’t discussed, though, considering the outcome, how to do it is aonther point to discuss.  I am reminded of an anti-gang poster kerfuffle about twenty years ago, that featured a picture of a gang-banger and a KKK hooded figure.  It compared the number of people that had been lynched and the number of people killed by gang violence, concluding with a statement to the effect that gang-bangers aren’t brothers, they’re traitors.  It was considered insensitive, though the teens it was aimed at loved it.  SLC] [Web Page].  Accessed 9-27-2021.
