Protesters Want Fire Capt. Disciplined (Trayvon Martin)
CBSMiami ^ | April 18, 2012 | David Sutta

Posted on 04/18/2012 1:09:21 PM PDT by kevcol


South Florida civil rights leaders held a protest Wednesday in connection with controversial comments made by a Miami-Dade Fire Department Captain in the Trayvon Martin case.
.
.
Beckmann’s personal Facebook posting read, “I and my coworkers could rewrite the book on whether our urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, *expletive*, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents.”
.
.
With papers in hand Dunn led the activists up to the 29th floor at County Hall and demanded to meet with the Mayor. Mayor Carlos Gimenez, however, was out at an event in Hialeah. They pledged to keep the pressure on Gimenez until he decides what should be done.
.
.
“His actions or no actions will indicate how he feels about Mr. Brian Beckman’s statements. About Mr. Brian Beckman’s racism.” said Dunn.

Beckmann didn't even mention race. Note the not too thinly veiled threat at the mayor. One of the speakers (guy from Federation of Black Employees) said he was outraged that his tax dollars would be used to pay Backmann's salary - the irony is rich there.

Funny, they don’t like the charge, but they are not rebutting it either.

Was this before or after they held a protest about the Black Panthers bounty on George Zimmerman's head?

Protesters Want Fire Capt. Disciplined (Trayvon Martin)

Tray-von is a Fire Captain now? What a solid citizen he must have been.

You don't just get to be a Fire Captain because you sport a hoodie, you know.

Speaking 'truth' to power - or truth to the powerless - or 'truth' to anyone - will get a person fired. And barbecued by the MSM - a group who's job it is to keep all myths going - no matter how stupid or easily disproved...

No, professional agitators & demagogues, who know how to play the blame game. It has been the staple of revolutionary demagogues & agitators since the Jacobins took over France in 1789. It worked for Lenin & Trotsky in 1917. It worked for Hitler in 1930-1933. It worked for Obama in 2008. We will get our belly full of it, this summer.

Here's the liberal 'rebuttal': that's mean and racist... and we'll stick our big brother ( the MSM ) on you for speaking. Freedom of speech is only for those who parrot liberal elite dogma.

These people get angry when you get in the way of their lynching.

They are a lynch mob and will pick any victim who gets in their way,

The Judge knew that and she ran, I don’t blame her.

If so, it might be a blessing for Beckmann. Once the case is tossed out at the probable cause/self-defense hearing, and the "protestors" start burning down the hood, would you want to be the fire chief?

Both of Trayvon Martin's parents are employed. Neither is on public assistance.

You are wise. One need not be in law enforcement to know that having facebook/twiitter accounts is dumber than dirt.

I keep my RL interwebz footprint as small as possible. There are many people who think that other people care they did a #2 at the restroom at the Starbucks on Wilshire blvd. They are wrong.

I have a fb account but have a “look don’t touch” policy.

No free speech for Brian Beckman!

But our kids can walk out of school, and we can scream about Zimmerman's "racism", and the Black Panthers can put out a bounty on his head, and Jesse Jagmo and Al Sharpton can threaten our state with disruptions....but that Brian Beckman guy, he has to shut up!

Stating facts is never a crime.
Making personal inferences to use later as a means to attack someone else is lame at best, fraudulent at worst.

I assumed he was refering to parents of white, tattooed, drug using pierced losers.

And I wish the protesters had received some discipline while growing up to teach them proper behavior and the difference between right and wrong.

Why do the protesters still have teeth? Are there no wooden rails in Florida? Is not tar made available south of the Georgia state line?

I read it several times. I cannot see where ANY REFERENCE to race was mentioned. It seems some elements of society might be PARANOID.

Only if I believed myself to be the mortal equivalent of Sisyphus or Hercules because the task would be of similar scale to those in mythology.

If just ONE person in a position of leadership, like this mayor, would tell these borderline retards to take a hike, it could really be the beginning of the end of app 12% of the population having an entire nation over a barrel. I pray he does, but am not holding my breath.

Since neither a race nor any particular individuals were named, Mr. Dunn seems to have self-identified as the representative of “...failed, *expletive*, ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents.” If his assessment is correct, on what basis should such persons be defended? If he is wrong, his “constituents” should be offended, by him. Another fine community activist.

Punished for what? For exercising his god given rights to free speech? This crap is getting way out of hand and time to put a stop to it. All we need are some leaders with guts enough to buck the PC loving idiots and race baiters.
