Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis has stirred up more controversy a Facebook post that sharply criticized protesters outside the Ravens game M&T Bank Stadium.

He denounced them as Fist Wielding, Black Power Activists who ignored the rising crime rate in Baltimore.

WBOC reports that the post has subsequently been deleted.

Lewis said it was shameful that they were not taking responsibility for the violence.

Wicomico County NAACP President Mary Ashanti told the television station that Lewis’s post was not representative to law enforcement.

She said it was now better to focus on when Lewis comes up for re-election adding, “He’s just showing people how he is.”
