Indiana Deputy Attorney General Fired Over Tweets
Tweeting that police should, quote, "use live ammunition" against protesters in Wisconsin has cost a deputy attorney general his job in Indiana.
Jeff Cox was fired by Attorney General Greg Zoeller after a staff member at the political news website Mother Jones communicated with Cox about the protests.
Cox called the demonstrators in Wisconsin "thugs" and "political enemies," adding quote, "you're darned right I advocate deadly force."
Zoeller's office released a statement saying quote, "We respect individual's First Amendment right to express their personal views on private online forums, but as public servants we are held by the public to a higher standard, and we should strive for civility."
