Deputy Disciplined For Facebook Comments

(Columbia, SC)  --  A Richland County deputy is in trouble for a comment he posted on Facebook. 

Lieutenant Phil Tessier was disciplined after writing that kids who went to the Village at Sandhill to watch a fight weren't children but animals with a gang and thug mentality.  

The sheriff's office calls the comments thoughtless and inappropriate.  They confirmed Tessier was punished, but no details were provided.
