- Local news station WCPO reports that Hamilton County Deputy Michael Stemmerding posted the Three Percenters flag as his official Facebook cover photo. The Three Percenters are a far-right militia currently under investigation by the FBI for their alleged role in planning the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building.
- Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey tells WCPO that Stemmerding is now under investigation and she says that the prospect of one of her deputies supporting a violent militia is “very serious.” The deputy in question first came under scrutiny in 2015 when he posted a bigoted anti-Muslim message on Instagram.
- “Allah SUCKS Mohammed SUCKS Islam SUCKS,” he wrote. “Any of you Haji’s have an issue with me saying this, PM me and I’ll gladly give You my address. You can come visit me, where I promise I will KILL YOU In my front yard!!”
