A Estherwood assistant police chief Wayne Welsh resigned after sharing a racially charged meme to his Facebook.
As Welsh started to receive backlash for the post he attempted to defend himself by claiming that it isn’t illegal to post pictures on Facebook according to the Sacramento Bee
Since, the post has been removed and Welsh’s Facebook has been made private but not before people captured a picture of the ordeal.
