Egnor, who was on the force for 13 years, also offered his disturbing take on illegal immigration — "I have an immigration policy: 12 gauge shotgun! — and on the possibility that Denver Nuggets player Carmelo Anthony was leaving the team, "Send him back to the hood in New York or Jersey. Good riddance."
The lieutenant's superior, Undersheriff Tony Spurlock, described the messages as "very shocking and inappropriate racial comments, homophobic comments," and insisted that his staff knows that improper activities have consequences:
Our message is while you're here we want you to do your job and serve the community the very best that you can. If you have concerns politically, what happens in the world, you have to do it in an appropriate way and not relate it to this county sheriff's office.
Spurlock also said that Egnor "resigned in the middle of the investigation," because "he was ashamed of what he had been doing while he was on duty." And what about when he's off duty, would Egnor think that's okay?
