(Scroll down for video) A female police operator was fired from her job after she was caught calling black people animals, according to a statement released by the Dallas, Texas police department.
The Dallas 911 operator has been sacked for allegedly posting the racist comments on her Facebook page.
“Blacks are outrageous! They are more like animals, you never know what to do, just love how they always cause problems,” one of her Facebook posts read. “I can count on one hand the black people I know that have brains,” another post read.
Another post seems to refer to a specific call the operator received.
“I can count on one hand the black people I know who are not selfish,” another post said.
After the messages were brought to the attention of the Dallas Police Department they issued a statement saying that April Sims, 23, was terminated for violating the social media policy of the department. The department said Sims was already on probation, so she has no right to appeal her dismissal.
Dallas Councilman Dwaine Caraway said the incident “not only embarrassed the department it shamed the city.”
“First, I was surprised and saddened to know that this is happening and is still taking place at the present time, especially here in the 911,” Caraway said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
