Woke Firefighter Terminated for Mocking Death of Police Officer

Woke Firefighter Terminated for Mocking Death of Police Officer

Firefighter FIRED – Going “Woke” Doesn’t Pay!

(RepublicanJournal.org) – On Wednesday, August 17, two days after Detective Cesar “Echy” Echaverry was shot while responding to an alleged armed robbery, the Miami-Dade Police Department announced the officer’s death. Soon after, a firefighter from the area made disrespectful remarks about the deceased detective in a WhatsApp group chat; news that has ultimately resulted in the loss of his job.

According to reports, firefighter Kevin Newcomb referred to Echaverry as “another dead cop” and criticized the tributes paid to the deceased officer. Newcomb said the local hero was “probably against gun control” and stated that police officers’ only function was “protecting the rich… and the status quo.”

Joseph Zahralban, the Miami Department of Fire-Rescue chief, revealed that an unnamed firefighter had been dismissed after making the public comments. They said the individual’s words had displayed a lack of respect for human life and a violent attitude toward other public servants. These traits made his continued employment with the fire department untenable, according to Zahralban.

Since news of Newcomb’s dismissal emerged, there has been an outpouring of support for him from hard-left accounts on social media platforms.

Do you think the fire department made the right call in dismissing Newcomb?
