Connecticut AG investigating prison guard's Facebook posts

Connecticut's Correction Department and Attorney General's Office have launched investigations into the anti-Muslim social media posts of a state prison guard. The move came Monday after the Connecticut Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations called for the firing of Corrections Officer Anthony Marlak, citing posts on Facebook that included a meme depicting five apparently Muslim men hanging from nooses with the caption "Islamic wind chimes." Marlak did not return phone calls and text messages seeking comment. He told Correction officials that the meme was posted in 2018 and targeted members of ISIS, not Muslims in general.
