FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – Fairborn Police Officer Lee Cyr has been fired from the department regarding a Facebook comment about a Black Lives Matter activist who killed himself on the Statehouse steps.

The post read “Love a happy ending.” It was posted on the Ohio Politics Facebook page Wednesday, two days after MarShawn McCarrel II killed himself. He was previously placed on paid leave during the investigation.

The Fairborn police department said in a press release in part that: “This action is in violation of the department’s social media policy and does not conform to the Professional Standards & Core Values established by the organization.”

Police say Cyr was off duty when the comment was posted.
