Lynwood, California city manager Jose Ometeotl was put on paid administrative leave Tuesday after his social media post on the ambush shooting of two sheriffs’ deputies over the weekend was heavily criticized.
Ometeotl posted a response on his Instagram account on Sunday to the shooting of the two deputies with a photo of Malcolm X with writing over it that said “Chickens come home to roost.”
“These deputies murdered, framed and stole from the community just because they could. Good deputies never turned on bad deputies for fear of retaliation and when caught most of these bad deputies kept their jobs and continued on their criminal career.
