Fired Sheriffs given jobs back

An arbitrator has awarded the jobs of two Essex county Guards back to them after they were fired for racially charged comments. The guards, union president Jerry Enos, and union treasurer and webmaster K. Ricky Thompson were fired for a posting on the Union website that indicated that Sheriff Frank Cousins should be assassinated by the same man who assassinated Martin Luther King Jr. Neither of them wrote the posting, but holding them responsible Cousins fired both.
