The Onslow County Sheriff is upset after his department’s Facebook page was reported as illegitimate (FAKE NEWS) LOL!
The Onslow County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page was shut down last week after it turned out to not be legit.
Major Tommie Thomas told local reporters, To put something out there gets us instantly, in front of a large crowd so we can have our message noticed within a day by thousands of people. In law enforcement sometimes, exigency is important, and being able to get the word out quick can mean the difference between life and death.
Thomas said the account was a second account he maintained for the benefit of the sheriff’s office.
