DETROIT  — An assistant prosecutor in Michigan who quit last year after posting on Facebook that people assaulting police officers in Baltimore should be shot has returned to work for her former employer.

Wayne County prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Maria Miller said in an email Thursday that Teana Walsh returned to work as a part-time contract employee in June.

Miller says Walsh isn’t commenting.

Walsh’s now-deleted post on her personal Facebook page said the “solution” for “large swarms of people throwing bricks at police” is “Shoot em. Period.” Miller said in a statement at the time that the post was “out of character” and “does not reflect the person that we know.”

The Detroit News reported Walsh’s return Thursday.

Walsh’s resignation came as Baltimore’s top prosecutor announced criminal charges in Freddie Gray’s death.
