911 is definitely a joke now. Checks have just stopped coming in for a Dallas 911 operator who decided to air her racist views on black folks on her Facebook page.
Via MailOnline reports:
A 911 operator has been fired for allegedly posting numerous racist remarks on her Facebook page.
April Sims, from Dallas, Texas, compares black people to ‘animals’, says they have ‘sh** for brains’ and blames them for wasting time calling 911.
The posts on her page were not available but one of her Facebook friends sent them to a local news station.
One read: ‘Black people are outrageous! They are more like animals, they never know how to act, just loud [expletive] Always causing problems.’
‘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 said: ‘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 announced last night that Sims had been terminated for violating the department’s social media policy.
The policy prohibits employees from posting items or information that may adversely affect the morale, confidence, and public respect of the department.
She was hired by the department in December.
Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway told WFAA that the incident ’embarrasses not just the department, it embarrasses the city.
‘Number one, I am shocked and it saddens me to know that this is going on and still taking place in today’s time, especially here in 911.’
Sims is said to have contacted a News8 reporter last night to say that nothing on her page has been deleted.
On her Facebook postings, someone asks her if her page was hacked. She responds by saying she stands by every word.
Also on her page, in response to someone who challenged the remarks, she hinted at some of the difficulties facing 911 operators and callers.
‘You should be more worried about the fact that there is often no Spanish speaker on duty. We have to call a 3rd party language line therefore causing those citizens to wait over a minute for emergency assistance.
‘All because the city doesn’t want to pay employees more speak Spanish. That’s what you should be worried about.’
Her page still states that she works as a ‘911 CALLTAKER at Dallas Police Department’.
SMH @ this bi*** right here…
