On Monday Simi Valley City Councilman Mike Judge posted a meme of protesters on Facebook with this caption: "Wanna stop the riots? Mobilize the septic tank trucks, put a pressure cannon on 'em, and hose 'em down. The end."

Judge later told CBS News that the meme was a joke: "That's all I wanted to do, was make fun of the mask wearing, but obviously people didn't take it that way. I don't think I did anything wrong, except maybe post a joke that was in bad taste."
