A firefighter is forced to resign for writing a Facebook post after a call where a
2-year-old was hit by a car, allegedly stating that the child was
unattended and asking where the mother was.

How many times have we all
wondered the same thing? It’s a shame that a man has lost his job, and
three others are facing discipline, while the irresponsible parent gets
nothing for allowing this child to be out on the street to be injured.

Public safety agencies are so worried about this politically correct attitude, so afraid of ruffling feathers, that they  would rather hang employees out to dry than ask why a 2 year old was on the street unsupervised.

Yet another reason why I retired.

But I thought it took a village to raise a child?

Isn't it part of the village's responsibility to ask where the EFF the parents are?

I'm not letting the father off the hook either – I think too many people do that.

I find the management (refuse to call them leaders) of public safety agencies afraid to ruffle only some feathers; just as too many public officials are. We effectively have an Untouchable class in this country; can't criticize them, can't ask them to take responsibility, can't discuss their values/principles.
