Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin — who is overseeing the investigation of the mass shooting at an Oregon community college — posted a video on his Facebook page that suggested the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, according to Mother Jones.

One month after the Connecticut shooting that claimed the lives of 26, 20 elementary school children and 6 adult staff members, Hamlin linked to the video called: “The Sandy Hook Shooting – Fully Exposed.”

On his post he wrote, “This makes me wonder who we can trust anymore… Watch, listen, and keep an open mind.”

Hanlin has already come under fire for opposing additional gun control laws following the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, writing to Vice President Joe Biden: “Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings. Any actions against, or in disregard to our U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights by the current administration would be irresponsible and an indisputable insult to the American people.”

Hanlin is charged with investigating the shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College that left 10 dead, including the shooter Chris Harper Mercer, and at least 10 injured.

The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.

Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.

"The two competing forces collided Saturday on the Twitter feed of Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, when she boosted a tweet that lauded a man in Texas in a viral video as he yelled the n-word and wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators."
