The Cass County Sheriff's Office says it will soon begin an internal affairs investigation following the report of an insensitive social media post by a non-licensed correctional deputy that has drawn the attention of Native Lives Matter and others who viewed it.  The post was sent from the employee’s personal social media account while off duty.
Tim Briggeman, Cass County Sheriff's Office spokesman, tells WZFG News that the employee has been placed on administrative leave, pending the results of the investigation.
"The Cass County Sheriff’s Office does not condone behavior, conduct and/or comments that are derogatory in nature  and we expect all employees to maintain a high level of professionalism, both on and off duty, at all times," a news release states.
Briggeman says the sheriff’s office will comment on this incident further after more information is gathered through the internal investigation.
