The Virginia police offers was fired by his department after big tech “leaked” a list of anonymous donors to a fund for Kyle Rittenhaus. Rittenhaus is the 17 year old who shot and killed two protestors who were chasing him down and attacking him at a BLM protest last year while Rittenhaus was there providing medical attention and protection for a local business.
The officer who was fired was serving as the executive officer for the internal affairs division. He made a $25 anonymous donation to Rittenhaus. A hacker stole all the donors information and posted them online and leaked them to the mainstream media as there were many police officers who appeared on the donation rolls.
The police department was able to fire this particular office because he used his official work email when making the donation. They consider him using his government property for political means, which is the grounds they used to fire him.
