Asst. Police Chief In Louisiana Resigns After Posting Racist Meme Online
Pro tip: If you work in public service or schools or damn near anywhere nowadays, DON’T POST RACIST THINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA UNLESS YOU WANT TO LOSE YOUR JOB.
After all the people who have lost their jobs over the years for this type of s#it, it’s beyond us why ANYONE thinks they can get away with it, much less a “sworn officer of the law”.
However, the former assistant police chief in Estherwood, Louisiana clearly believes that there is nothing wrong with posting things like THIS to his Facebook page according to SacBee:
Normally in situations like this, some soulless and placating apology is offered, but Wayne Welsh doubled-down on his offensive post like a true blue good ol’ boy:
“Its (sic) not against the. Law if you share stuff on. Facebook. Its (sic). Social media. Internet.” Facebook friends of his also defended him.
He also posted about people using the “race card” and that the “Facebook police” were mad at him.
Once s#it got REALLY hot, Wayne came back with his soulless and placating “apology”:
“Well, I posted something on Facebook that made a lot of people mad,” he wrote. “Well, I’m sorry for what happen (sic). Ya (sic) have a blessed day.”
And THEN Wayne Welsh quit his job, or maybe was forced to quit. Police Chief Ernet Villejoin announced that Welsh would be stepping down:
Villejoin says he had to take action because he believes those statements don’t reflect Estherwood police.
“I got him out yesterday. I suspended him and I was going to take the phone away and he was not allowed to get on Facebook in the unit” said Villejoin.
He also wanted to make one thing clear.
“I know Wayne didn’t do this on purpose. He didn’t do this offend anybody. I apologize to anybody that it offended, believe me.” said Villejoin.
Why do white people always do this thing where they say/do racist things then say “Oh, I didn’t mean to offend…”.
