FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio police officer accused of making an inappropriate comment about a Black Lives Matter activist who killed himself on the Statehouse steps has been fired.
Fairborn police say officer Lee Cyr was fired after an investigation into a Facebook comment posted last month under Cyr’s account.
The comment stated “Love a happy ending.” It was posted on the Ohio Politics Facebook page two days after MarShawn McCarrel II shot himself. McCarrel had helped with protests after high-profile police shootings led to the Black Lives Matter movement.
