Lubbock Co. Emergency Mgt. Coordinator Placed on Leave

News
Clinton Thetford 720

Lubbock County Emergency Management Coordinator Clinton Thetford was placed on leave by Sheriff Kelly Rowe.

Rowe said a Facebook post by Thetford was brought to his attention Thursday evening.  The sheriff did not specify, but EverythingLubbock.com learned that it was a cartoon of Elmer Fudd shooting President Obama.

The sheriff said Thetford was placed on leave until there could be a full review of his actions next week.  Captain Kathleen Finley was asked to serve as the Acting Emergency Management Coordinator. 

Thetford has not yet responded to a request for comment. It appears the cartoon has been removed from Thetford’s page.
