Police officer commended on Facebook after killing one and wounding three
DHA PhotoA police commissioner claims his personal Facebook account was hacked after supportive comments were written under his account in support of a fellow police officer who had killed one person and wounded three others after firing his gun in a scuffle in İzmir on Aug. 13.
“Well done, [you] did not bring shame to our uniform by being beaten in the street,” the Antalya Police Department commissioner, S.G., reportedly wrote on Facebook in support of police officer İ.K., according to private broadcaster NTV. “I don’t wish for God to bless the dogs who died or were wounded [in the incident].”
The police commissioner's Facebook account was deactivated after his words were revealed by NTV and the commissioner denied having written the message.
"[My account] was hacked. I immediately closed my account when I realized that," S.G. reportedly said in his defense.
The Antalya Police Department has subsequently launched an investigation into the incident.
“The mentioned police officer's personal thoughts, which were shared on a social network, are not legally binding to our department and an investigation was launched for the relevant officer," a statement from the police department said.
