The Miami Fire Department terminated firefighter Kevin Newcomb for making comments about a police detective who died in the line of duty this week, and in favor of gun control. It was pretty outrageous stuff.
This is what he wrote:
Who cares? Another dead cop, probably against gun control. They didn’t give a fuck when kids were dying in that school shooting they stood outside. Cops exist for the government to exercise its monopoly on violence. They want the whole world to stop when one of theirs goes down. How many idiots I had to transport with honor guard their dead bodies from coronavirus because they all were too stupid to wear masks or get vaccinated. All cops are good for is protecting the rich property owners and the status quo. Everything else is a farce. Fuck the police.Firefighter Kevin Newcomb on Miami Detective Cesar Echaverry’s death
If the left can cancel anyone they disagree with, so can we.
We have confirmed that the firefighter in question authored a written statement using a social media platform that demonstrated a disregard for human life, demonstrated a violent and antagonistic stance towards civil servants and represented conduct unbecoming of a Miami Firefighter. These characteristics make it impossible for this individual to carry out his duties as a first responder in the City of Miami.Fire Chief Joseph Zahralban
The firefighter was suspended with pay on Thursday to permit the Miami Fire Rescue department to complete its investigation into the text message. The agency announced his firing less than 24 hours later.
