TPD Officer Fired For Facebook Posts

File photo-Tulsa Police

A Tulsa Police Officer is off the force. This after his anti-government and anti-Islamic social media posts came to light. Wayne Brown had just graduated from the Police Academy last month. 

On Facebook, he used the name Duke Brown. Community activist Marq Lewis of We The People-Oklahoma reposted some of Brown’s 2013 messages to draw attention to the comments. 

The posts were critical of the Obamas, the Islamic faith and one post said:  “Despite what your momma told you, violence does solve problems”.
