Sherry Prose Wiki – Bio
Sherry Prose, a part-time sheriff’s deputy in Michigan got canned after sharing a photo of Trump, Biden and Pence jack-o’-lanterns made from pumpkins and a watermelon one to represent Kamala Harris.
The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office terminated longtime employee Sherry Prose last month after she posted the Halloween/election-themed photos with the horribly racist twist.
Her age is unclear.
Sherry Prose Fired Over Racist Post
A racist Halloween decoration at home is private tastelessness, but posting it online can be a career killer particularly for a law enforcer.
The now-deleted holiday message at right, posted for 398 Facebook friends, cost Deputy Sherry A. Prose her badge and her job recently.
“The day this post came to our attention, this part-time employee immediately terminated,” says Sheriff Mike Bouchard, “and is no longer employed by the Oakland County Sheriff’s office.” His statement is tweeted Monday by WXYZ reporter Rudy Harper.
Prose had been a part-time deputy since September 1994, her Facebook page says. It indicates she retired from another law enforcement agency.
And yes, that’s a carved watermelon reference to America’s first Black vice president-elect by a woman who was a sworn law enforcer until she showed off hatred and unbelievably bad judgment.
It’s unclear when Prose shared her post, but it featured 3 pumpkins in one photo with the caption, “Trump, Biden, Pence and Kamala. Happy Halloween.” The second photo shows Harris as a watermelon jack-o’-lantern
Rev. Dr Wendell, president of Detroit’s NAACP branch, points out that the watermelon correlation with Black people is “linked to buffoonery and to less than.” He adds … “I believe that the intent purposely structured to diminish and to dilute the significance of the first African American … as Vice President of these United States.”
Police Chief William Riley agrees, and says that’s why they condemn the post, and “condemn it loudly.”
