A former Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputy claims he was wrongly fired after 16 years on the job because of a Facebook post.
Frank Harris was terminated in January after a post saying descendants of slaves should get reparations and the white man stole everything he got.
The Sheriff's office does have a policy regulating what employees can post on social media, but Harris said that it violates his freedom of speech.
"One of the rights we have dealing with the Constitution is the First Amendment Freedom of Speech. In my post there is no threats of any kind. There's no kind of harm coming to anyone," said Harris.
Harris believes his disciplinary hearing wasn't handled fairly and he may file an EEOC complaint.
He said that the post that got him in trouble wasn't meant to offend anyone.
