A 911-operator in Dallas has been fired after posting racist comments about African Americans on her Facebook page, News One reports.
The operator, April Sims Sims took to Facebook page to post bigoted, stereotypical insults about black people, particularly those who call 911. Though her page is private, a friend sent screen caps to a local news station.
One reads: "Black people are outrageous! They are more like animals, they never know how to act, just loud [expletive] Always causing problems."
Another reads: "I can count on one hand the black people I know who don’t have [expletive] for brains.I can count on one hand the black people I know who aren’t selfish."
Another reads: "You want to call 911 cause your boyfriend put his hands on you and you want to press charges when you don’t even know his real name?!"
"Sure let’s make a police report for Dino, that is his street name."
The Dallas Police Department fired her for violating their social media policy, which “prohibits employees from posting items or information that may adversely affect the morale, confidence, and public respect of the department,” reports the Daily Mail.
She was hired in December of 2012.
