A Marlin police detective has been fired after allegedly using Facebook to complain about people on public assistance. Police Chief Darrell Allen dismissed Rob Douglas, a five-year veteran of the force southeast of Waco. A post attributed to Douglas expressed frustration about grocery shopping on the first of the month. It spoke of seeing people on public assistance or food stamps and also complained that some have tattoos and expensive car accessories.
