The site, which publishes stories about inappropriate behavior by law enforcement, said it obtained screen shots of the posts, as well as a cache of similar posts, from a private Facebook group for correctional officers.
A spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Corrections said it was aware of the posts. "The alleged actions of these individuals do not reflect the conduct expected of any GDC employee, and will not be tolerated," Joan Heath said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday.
The statement didn’t elaborate on what action, if any, the agency would take.
Also in Georgia, a Columbus water department worker apparently got spooked after his post saying he "might cut your water off" went viral. He deleted the post, and an agency spokesman told the Columbus Ledger-Inquirer conversations were ongoing about employees' use of social media.
In Texas, prison officials are investigating whether guards went too far with the fad, including one post that mentioned gassing inmates, according to The Houston Chronicle.
Messages sent to the workers weren't immediately returned.
