Navy Veteran Fired for Posting Photos of Homeland Security Cars on Facebook

A Navy veteran who posted photos to Facebook of Homeland Security vehicles arriving near Ferguson was fired from his job and accused of being a terrorist, CNN reports.

Mark Paffrath worked for the Drury hotel chain where the federal vehicles were amassing in a parking lot when he snapped the photos.

Paffrath said his boss was furious.

“The head of security for Drury was in there, and he pretty much called me a terrorist, saying that I dishonorably served my country for posting those pictures and videos on Facebook,” Paffrath said.

Paffrath said he can’t understand what he did wrong.

“You know, it surprised me, and I was rather shocked that they were there. So I took a short video and a picture of the vehicles. I didn’t give any location out,” he said.

Paffrath, who was born and raised in Ferguson, posted along with the images: “Why are all these vehicles here, I wonder if it has anything to do with Ferguson? #Ferguson, #No justice, no peace.”

He was fired on Saturday, two days after posting the photos.
