A national conversation has arisen in recent weeks about the role of social media in our civic and political life. This has been largely sparked by President Donald Trump’s removal from Twitter -- with the company citing violations in community standards, along with fears that the President’s rhetoric could incite further violence following the takeover of the U.S. Capitol last week.(CNN)

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve been made aware of a social media post and text message that has been circulating.

The message states:

They say the message is referring to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department in South Carolina, and not the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office. They say there are no credible threats regarding Richmond County and Augusta.

At this time, local deputies say they’re also not aware of any credible threats to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, either.
