In a photo that was circulating social media, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin seems to be thrusting his pelvis at a camera, while a sticker reading “Lit Saturday” covers his genitals.
This isn’t the sheriff’s first personal dispute on Facebook. He made controversial remarks on camera, following a painful incident in October 2015 during his investigation of the Umpqua Community College shooting that left 10 people dead. Hanlin — an opinionated gun rights advocate — suggested in the video, that the Newtown, Conn., massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School , in which 20 children and six adults were killed, could have been staged by the US government to push an anti-gun agenda.
He went on to call the parents who lost children at the school “crisis actors.”
