Santa Fe sergeant put on desk duty after investigation into Facebook posts

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A Santa Fe Police sergeant under fire for his controversial posts on social media earlier this year, is now on desk duty after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia had his bosses taking another look at those posts.

An internal investigation was launched back in February after Sergeant Troy Baker posted on Facebook about Islam and the transgender community.

One post said, “All lives splatter, nobody cares about your protest,” with a picture of a car running over protesters.

Now, according to the New Mexican, the chief put Baker on restricted desk duty saying “It’s in the best interest of the department and the public.”

Baker is also the head of the Santa Fe Police Officers Union.
