Tyler Roysdon allegedly suggested on Facebook that he would save a dog from a burning house before a black man
A volunteer firefighter in Franklin township, Ohio, Tyler Roysdon was suspended after allegedly making racist remarks on Facebook.
From a report by Cincinnati.com, Tyler Roysdon who had volunteered to combat a recent fire outbreak made a comment regarding who he would save first from a burning house, affirmed by Facebook user Erica Latimore. Latimore pointed that Roysdon suggested in his post “if he went inside the burning house of a black man and he had a dog, that he would save the dog first and probably take his time coming back to get the black man.”
Latimore shared another comment on Facebook that had Roysdon’s name next to it that said, “That’s because one dog is more important than a million n——.” This is in concord to the previous statement.
“This is not acceptable behavior for a township employee,” the township said in a statement. “As a rule all employees are given a closed door disciplinary hearing that gives them a chance to provide witnesses or evidence providing their innocence. But for the meantime, he has to be behind the line until after the hearing on September 27th.
