Tyler Roysdon, a volunteer for the Ohio Fire Department has been suspended indefinitely after saying he'd rather save one dog than "a million ni**ers".
WHIO-TV reports that Tyler Roysdon, of Franklin Township in Warren County, said if he had to choose between saving a dog or a black man, the animal would come first.
He's a volunteer firefighter for Franklin Township in OH and he's (rightfully) in some deep, deep sh*t for his extra, extra racial comment that he posted on Facebook the other day.
Many are calling for Roysdon to be permanently released, but it appears that Bishop does not have termination powers in this case. That requires a vote by the township's Board of Trustees, and a disciplinary hearing has been set for September 27, according to the statement.
A woman named Joei Frame Roysdon identified herself as Roysdon's wife to Fox 19, and told the TV station: "He admitted that he said things that were wrong and apologized".
Well, the black people he would let die over a dog also deserve a chance. Chief Bishop does not have the authority to terminate employees.

"I want people to realise this is only one man's comment", Morris said.
"[Roysdon] blatantly said on social media that he wouldn't do that", Morris said.
Brian Morris, a township trustee, said Roysdon's remarks were clearly out of bounds by any estimation. I'm disgusted in what he said. "We have a great group of men [firefighters] and disgusting comments from one individual does not represent the entire fire department". There is no reason for him to say that anytime, anywhere ...
