Officer James Anthony posted about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan last year.


AKRON, Ohio — A 23-year veteran of the Akron Police Department has been fired after posting a controversial Facebook message on his page.

In November, Officer James Anthony was placed on paid administrative leave after writing a post on Facebook targeting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, wondering how it is that no one had “offed” Farrakhan.

Akron Police confirm that Anthony was fired because of the Facebook post on Thursday of this week.
