Tennessee sheriff’s deputy suspended after Facebook post

A Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy has been suspended without pay over a Facebook post regarding the Black Lives Matter shutdown of Interstate 40.
    
Sheriff’s spokesman Earle Farrell tells the Commercial Appeal that the sheriff’s office found out about the post on Wednesday and took "immediate action." Farrell confirmed the suspension, but couldn’t release the name.
    
The newspaper reports the deputy is believed to be Jeremy McNary. His Facebook page had been taken down late Wednesday, apparently after he said police should use hoses on the protesters.
