A small private university in Massachusetts has decided to place it’s police chief on administrative leave after students found his Twitter account was mostly likes of President Donald Trump’s tweets, most focused on anti-immigration, pro-gun rights, and potentially racist sentiments.
According to MassLive.com, the Twitter account for Daniel Hect has since been deleted.
Mount Holyoke College’s president has written a response on the school’s website saying Hect was placed on administrative leave due to the fact he has not developed “the level of trust required to engage in community policing.”
Hect has remained quiet about his leave.
The school has not said given a timetable of when Hect could potentially be fired, or return to the job.
In the meantime, the college has put Deputy Chief Ray LaBarre in charge.
