A volunteer racist firefighter for Franklin Township, Ohio, has been suspended indefinitely over a racist Facebook post, in which he wrote that if he had to choose between saving a dog or a black man from a burning building, the dog would get priority, because “one dog is more important than a million n****rs.”
His post which has long been deleted from his Facebook page, was uncovered by township officials according to local station WHIO-TV.
HuffingtonPost reports that Roydson who is just a volunteer and only paid when called to duty, will not be called while the suspension is in effect, as it was also gathered that the township will hold a disciplinary hearing for him on Sept. 27.
Township officials released an official statement about Roysdon on Thursday, confirming that he was suspended until the township’s board of trustees can meet to determine his fate:
“Recently, a Franklin Township volunteer firefighter posted unacceptable remarks on social media. Upon gaining knowledge of this information, Fire Chief Steve Bishop immediately contacted the firefighter and directed the comments be removed. The firefighter was suspended without pay until the Board of Township Trustees could meet to determine a course of action. Chief Bishop does not have the authority to terminate employees. Termination of any township employee requires a vote by the Board of Trustees.”
