Protesters demand firing of Rockland sheriff over racist Facebook post
Dozens of protesters rallied Friday demanding the firing of Rockland Sheriff Louis Falco.
The group gathered outside the Rockland County Sheriff's Office. They want Falco fired over a racist Facebook post shared in June.
It was the second protest in recent weeks.
As News 12 has reported, Falco claims he mistakenly shared the 2013 article to his personal Facebook page. Falco says it happened while he was trying to send the post to an investigator to determine potential local impact or threats.
Falco has since apologized.
