Hopewell Township has fired a police officer who called Black Lives Matter protestors, “terrorists” in a social media post.

Township officials say Sara Erwin has been fired, and Sergeant Mandy Gray will be suspended for replying to the Facebook post.

Both have been in public service for more than two decades. Their lawyer says the town’s decision is “disgraceful and cowardice.”

The social media post was written in June of 2020, but the town made the move this past Friday.
