Police Chiefs Resign After Admitting to Fake Social Media Accounts

You may have read about this story in the news recently. Last week, a number of news agencies reported that the Burlington, Vermont Police Chief was forced to resign from her position for creating and using fake Facebook accounts. What is interesting about this story is that the Chief's predecessor had also resigned from office last December after admitting he had created a fake Twitter account that appeared to focus on a blogger who was critical of the police department. After the current Chief was promoted to replace the outgoing Chief, she also admitted that she too had created fake Facebook accounts where she criticized the blogger and also city council members.
