EARLE, AR (WMC) -

An Earle, Arkansas, firefighter has been relieved of duty indefinitely over a Facebook post saying NFL and NBA players who kneel during the National Anthem should be "shot in the head."

'i (sic) think trump should post snipers at every game," the post reads.

The assistant fire chief says the department in no way agrees with the statements that were made and that type of behavior will not be tolerated.
