The Seattle Police Officers’ Guild deleted its Facebook and Twitter accounts after heavy criticism of a Facebook post about last week’s Dallas police shootings last week. the Seattle Times reports.

The post read, in part, “The hatred of law enforcement by a minority movement is disgusting. … #Weshallovercome.” Detective Ron Smith, president of the guild, said the post was deleted because it had been taken out of context. It was a response to the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas last Thursday.
