A volunteer firefighter in Ohio has been suspended indefinitely after he was noticed posting something very racially charged on Facebook. The controversial and racist post has since been removed, but not before screenshots were taken and shared to numerous websites. Tyler Roysdon, 20, posted on Facebook that "saving one dog is more important than a million n***ers" and that didn't sit well with anyone who's a decent person. The context of the post was based on a question of who he would rather save from a burning building - a black person or a dog? He clearly devalued human life to save a dog, which is likely not the type of person you want being a firefighter. Dogs are great and all, but they usually can't do the things humans can do. Roysdon deleted the post, but not without receiving a suspension without pay.
Since he's a volunteer, then he can only be suspended by his local cohorts. However, if they would like to terminate him like a third trimester abortion, then he must be voted out by the Board of Trustees. Roysdon will have a closed door hearing to discuss his disciplinary situation and he'll likely be voted out faster than twelve DACA 'Dreamers' running from Trump based on a fake allegation that all DACA kids are getting booted. You know, stuff propagated by the mainstream liberal media that won't ever actually happen.
Trustees President Brian Morris seemed rather taken back upon hearing about the racist Facebook post. He seemed very concerned that one of his own firefighters would rather save a dog than a human. Morris has every right to be concerned because it could put someone in danger. True firefighters don't pick and choose who they'll rescue. They'll save anyone because that's what they signed up to do because firefighters are awesome and they don't care what color you are.
Here's a screenshot of Tyler Roysdon's Facebook profile. He's like the firefighter version of the blatantly racist white cop who shoots black people for nothing. Remember folks - one bad apple does not ruin the bunch. There will ALWAYS be someone bad on the job. Look around you. There's probably someone at your job right now who completely sucks. If you can't figure out who it is, then it might be you. If it's not you, then you might work at the best place on the planet and we'd like to know if you're hiring!
Now take a look at this guy's racist post. Learn a lesson from it folks. Dogs are cool, but not more valuable than people. Don't be like this guy.
Morris also spoke about how these are the comments of one person and they do not represent the rest of the firemen and women. That's one thing Morris is exactly right about. One person can make a horrible comment or mistake and it often reflects upon the team, which isn't exactly fair to the good people who've been misrepresented.
This Roysdon guy might become the new poster child for liberal attacks on Trump supporters. The liberals might think this guy is the most obvious racist to wear an Abraham Lincoln neck beard while looking like the redneck they've always wanted.
There's a few things wrong with this situation. For starters, he has to be voted out because any firefighter who would value an animal over a human life does not deserve to wear the uniform. Besides the guy's train of thought on the matter, it's also not wise to post things like this on Facebook or other social media. Anytime someone posts something bad on Facebook, Twitter, etc..., there's always someone there to capture a screenshot like they just discovered the end of a rainbow and a pot of gold.
Expect Roysdon to be permanently voted out of the volunteer firemen program. Whether you're racist or not, what he did was unacceptable and should not be tolerated of anyone serving the public. People look up to firefighters, so if one came out to be racist, then it slightly tarnishes their look as a whole. Even though it should not cause any issues for the other volunteer firefighters, it still could cause a problem for anyone attached in even the slightest form.
Randy from South Park would be upset with this man. Randy learned the hard way not to drop the N bomb so no one else had to. Randy would not approve.
We don't have to like everyone, but we should respect them. There's a lot of people I dislike and it's based on their liberalness or overall stupidity - not their color. Actions and merit speak louder than words.
Hopefully people take this as a lesson on what not to say. He was disrespectful, racist, and irresponsibly making his fire department look bad.
Be nice to people, respect each other, and maybe we'll be worth more than a dog some day.
With all that said, I think we need some comic relief.
Don't be like Randy, and don't be like Tyler. But always remember, it's OK to laugh at South Park. Here's Randy Marsh on Wheel of Fortune - probably the last time he was invited!
