Was Andrew Johnson removed from office?
Andrew Johnson had been on probationary employment since joining the department in March 2020 as a patrol officer. Police Chief Jeffrey O’Dell made the decision to fire Johnson because his social media posts, “do not align with our core values here at the Kissimmee Police Department”.
The department placed Johnson on administrative leave on Jan. 12 after receiving an email from a “concerned citizen” who forwarded 30 screenshots of Facebook posts uploaded by “Drew Johnson,” a spokeswoman said in a statement to Fox News Sunday.
The sender described Johnson as “a very big problem” and someone “incapable of doing his job without bias which as we know is a massive problem for police in this country,” according to a copy of the internal affairs memorandum supplied to Fox News by the department.

The email also claimed that Johnson’s social media posts demonstrate how “he a very big supporter of what happened recently” in Washington, D.C. Screenshots included in the memorandum showed that Johnson posted on Jan. 6 that, “The silent majority will rise!! Day one of the Revolutionary War!! Hang on, it’s only just begun.”
There was no evidence Johnson participated in the rioting at the U.S. Capitol, only that he reacted.
Another post documented in the investigation was published on Dec. 17 and showed a photo of then-President Trump with the phrase “Justice is Coming.” In the caption, Johnson warned of World War III and claimed, “China has deployed troops to Canada.”
“Civil War is right around the corner. It’s coming, prepare for it now,” Johnson allegedly wrote in another Facebook post in September.
An undated screenshot showed Johnson also posted a receipt for an ammunition order with the caption, “Thanks for my stimulus check!!!”

In August, Johnson allegedly reposted a meme of a disabled parking space with the caption “BLM activists in Wisconsin paint street mural in support of Jacob Blake.”

In another September exchange on social media, Johnson replied to a post by a Black woman who wrote that Americans should “get over” the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Johnson responded, “get over it and move on??? You mean like the whole slavery thing?”
He described LeBron James in another post as a “true piece of [expletive],” for not standing for the national anthem.
