Fire Captain Brian Beckmann DEMOTED for comment on FB about Martin's parents

Posted by streetcarman1 on Tue May 15 12:25:49 2012

Again....somethings NEVER change DOWN SOUTH!

What is really bad about this, both parents are NOT "wefare-dependent" individuals as Mr. Beckmann characterizes them to be.

Florida fire captain demoted over Facebook comments slamming Travyon Martin’s parents

Brian Beckmann apologized for calling slain teen’s folks ‘ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents’


By Erik Ortiz / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Tuesday, May 15, 2012, 6:49 AM


A South Florida fire captain was demoted Monday after calling the parents of Trayvon Martin “failed, s---bag, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents” on Facebook.

Miami-Dade Fire Captain Brian Beckmann was demoted to the lowest rank of firefighter after a two-hour administrative hearing and will have to submit to a psychological evaluation and take diversity training courses before he can rejoin the ranks, reported CBS 4 News in Miami.

Beckmann, a 15-year veteran, sparked outrage when he posted last month on his Facebook page about the Martin case.

His remarks were in response to State Attorney Angela Corey’s decision to file second-degree murder charges against George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old accused of fatally shooting Martin as he cut through his Florida condo complex in February.

The killing of Martin, an unarmed black teen who wore a hooded sweatshirt, sparked nationwide protests over racial profiling.

“I and my coworkers could rewrite the book on whether our urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, s---bag, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents, but like Mrs. Corey, we speak only the truth,” Beckmann posted.


“They’re just misunderstood little church going angels and the ghetto hoodie look doesn’t have anything to do with why people wonder if they’re about to get jacked by a thug,” he wrote.

Beckmann said he had copy and pasted the message, and later apologized for its content.

“I promise that I will try harder than ever to be a decent and professional public servant to the citizens of Miami-Dade County,” he reportedly wrote to Miami-Dade Fire Chief William Bryson.

But Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said Monday that public employees writing “disparaging” comments about others in the community won’t be tolerated.

“There’s no such thing as being off-the-clock; we are public servants 24/7 and must conduct ourselves with the utmost professionalism at all times,” Gimenez said in a statement.

The union representing Beckmann has filed an appeal, according to WSVN News, arguing that “the facts in this case do not warrant the discipline handed out today.”

Yep, and ironically, Trayvon's mother is also a Dade County employee (works for the Housing Authority, but she is currently on leave due to all the hoopla (some of her co-workers kindly donated some of her leave time to her), but she plans to return to work eventually). I don't know what Trayvon's father does for a living.

You fail to miss the point here...as a public servant, that is a 24/7 job. You deal with the public in his POSITION! to you at least get that part? eh? if he was a guy on the street selling bagels....yea...it shouldn't matter then. But he's a PUBLIC SERVANT and a MANAGER. Get it? Just like the soldier who got booted out of the military....the Mr. Stein. He said things about his boss on FB and now he's outa a job.

It's the same in private industry. If for example someone was overtly racist or anti-Semitic and some ill-thought out comments they make could be linked to a product or service, then sales of that product or service could suffer irreparable harm.

The rumor was that one prolific poster on Subtalk was demoted from his supervisory position to a car cleaner for some imprudent comments that he made on Subtalk regarding one of his bosses. While that may have contributed to it, the truth was that he also sent a string of harassing e-mails to that same boss.

On the other hand, my bosses knew that I posted on Subtalk and here and never had any issue with content except when I posted my explanation of "Fratostatic Yaw Damping" which seemed to spread like an Arizona wild fire & the report of the R-32s being sold to the Nigerian National Railway, which ended up being believed in one unit. We won't even talk about the shit storm from the story about the radiological/biological sensor that was accidentally lost when the wrong car got reefed.

Bronx principal John Chase DEMOTED for comments to female staffers

Pervy Bronx principal who joked about sex with a copy machine gets a demotion

Will be reassigned and made assistant principal, says city Education Dept.

A Bronx principal who was busted for taunting female workers about having sex with a photocopier is being demoted amid fresh allegations of creepy behavior.

Principal John Chase Jr. of Bronxdale High School ripped female staffers with a string of raunchy comments after his school received a new photocopier and a new computer last July, according to Education Department investigators.

“Have you seen the new copy machine? It does everything. It even has a hole in it where you can stick your d--- in it and get a b--- job,” said Chase, according to a November report by the agency’s Office of Equal Opportunity.

Education officials slapped Chase with sensitivity training and a disciplinary letter to his personnel file, but some staffers and elected officials called for his job.

Last month Chase landed in hot water again, when a student told authorities that he made inappropriate remarks that made her feel uncomfortable, school staffers said.

The girl’s complaint has been forwarded to the Office of Equal Opportunity, which will begin an investigation of the allegations, said agency spokeswoman Margie Feinberg.

Meanwhile, Chase is being assigned away from Bronxdale starting next week, and he will be demoted to the rank of assistant principal, Feinberg said.

“A mutual decision was made between the principal and the Department of Education,” said Feinberg, who added that Chase’s new school “has not been determined.”

One of the female staffers who saw Chase’s July outbursts - and filed a police report about them in September — said that she feels badly for whatever school gets him.

“I don’t think he’s going to change his ways,” said the staffer. “I don’t think he should be working in schools at all.”

Chase did not return repeated calls for comment.

No - that was when we Railman and I decided to revive the story. The original story was posted many months before. A few weeks later I was at a meeting and we were discussing some issue and a suggestion was made to remove otherwise unavailable parts from the scrapped R-32s. One of the engineers at the meeting expressed his concern because he heard that the cars were being converted to coaches shipped to Nigeria.

In a very narrow sense, he made the comment about 2 very specific people wo could have legal remedy. However, that comment could also be used to show his mind-set about an entire race given the actual truth about their employment. It certainly would not help his ability to perform his duties and I feel that there is some justification for the disciplinary action.

SO..this is okay for him to be a bitchass..based on perception of "an e3ntire race"..

Okay..if that is the truth..then how about we stick to that an say how many white folks in this contry outnumber black folks on the public dole..or how everything is slated to for the advancement of the WHITE RACE in this country..from education to shopping for food.
This was and is a national experiment that has failed to a point that every single person of color should stand up and say wehad enough of you bullshit..and go on a head hunt.

You know what that is,right?
