Racist Firefighter Says He'd Rescue A Dog Before Saving A Black Person

Racist Firefighter Says He'd Rescue A Dog Before Saving A Black Person”

A fireman from Franklin Township in OH has been suspended for posting on Facebook that he would rather save a dog than a "n*gger" during an emergency.

Roysdon had written on his Facebook that torn between saving a dog and a black man, he'd save the dog.

The comment was later taken down from his Facebook page, which features a cover photo of the Confederate flag and a black and white skull.

As a volunteer, Roysdon only gets paid when he's called to an emergency, which authorities said will not occur during his indefinite suspension, HuffPost reports.

Morris said based on Roysdon's comments, it's questionable if Roysdon should be a Franklin Township firefighter. Roysdon was suspended by Fire Chief Steve Bishop.

'The firefighter was suspended without pay until the Board of Township Trustees could meet to determine a course of action'. That authority lies with the Board of Trustees, who have scheduled a disciplinary hearing for September 27.

The post has since been deleted on Facebook.

Roysdon's wife, Joei Frame Roysdon, took to Facebook and defended her husband. Still, the president of the Board of Trustees wouldn't say definitively Roysdon should be fired for his comment.

Township Administrator Traci Stivers said in an email that she did not know how Bishop learned of the online comment on Tuesday or how long the post was online before he was informed of it.

The fire chief does not have the authority to terminate employees.

"'As a rule all employees are given a closed-door disciplinary hearing that gives them a chance to provide witnesses or evidence providing their innocence".

"Even if you take race out of it, it still would be wrong", Brian Morris tells WHIO.

"We don't pick and choose who needs us, we just go", he said.
