Two Wakulla County Sheriff deputies are being disciplined for posting racially insensitive comments on facebook, following a Missouri grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer who shot a black teenager.

Wakulla County Sheriff Larry Creel released the results of an internal investigation Tuesday. The investigation cleared three other officers of wrongdoing, but found that Undersheriff Trey Morrison and Detective Richard Moon participated in, "conduct unbecoming in an off duty capacity."

The FBI is now investigating the vandalism of another predominately black Wakulla County church and some signs on Wednesday.  It comes after a number of the “KKK graffiti” incidents have struck the rural community.

Since the weekend, the KKK graffiti has shown up on three churches—most recently Mount Olive Primitive Baptist Church—a box truck, and some road signs. And, Wakulla NAACP Chair Anginita Rosier says if the culprit isn’t caught, they’ll strike again.

The Wakulla County Sheriff’s office is offering a $1,000 reward for any information regarding possible hate crimes at two predominately black churches and a box truck outside a country club in Crawfordville over the weekend.

“And, I’ve had people calling in to want to donate to the award, which does my heart good, thinking that people are civic-minded enough to want to do like I want to do, which is to bring out community together and everyone get along, which is my major goal,” said Creel.

Wakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creel has now suspended five deputies following what he calls “insensitive” comments posted on Facebook about Ferguson, Missouri protestors.

Including his own number two—Undersheriff Trey Morrison—Creel has suspended Sergeant Eddie Wester, Detective Rick Buckley, and Detention Deputy Jeff Carroll.

The investigation into a suspended sheriff’s deputy for comments he made regarding the Ferguson, Missouri protestors has extended to others within the Wakulla County Sheriff’s department.

The grand jury’s decision in Ferguson, Missouri not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of black teen, Michael Brown set off a series of protests and violent rioting around the nation. It also led many people to take to social media to vent their frustration either by empathizing with Brown’s family or Officer Wilson.
