Ex-deputy says Facebook post led to job loss

Fired deputy Rodney Pirkle appeals to CSB

Ex-deputy says Facebook post led to job loss

WSBTV

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Forsyth County man believes he lost his job with the Sheriff's Office because he supported the sheriff’s opponent.

"I posted on Facebook that I would be supporting Duane Piper," said Rodney Pirkle.

Pirkle said he worked as a Forsyth County deputy from 2006 to 2010. He left the job to work as a private contractor in Afghanistan. When he returned in 2011, he got a job with the Sheriff's Office again, with a 12-month probationary period.

He said 11 months into that period, and days before the Facebook post, he received an above-average review from his superior. But things soon changed.

"Within 15 hours of me posting that, I had a captain who is with the Sheriff's Office, human resources and two internal affairs investigators in my house, releasing me from my duties," Pirkle said.
