Firefighter fired for racially charged social media post


THE POST ON-LINE LOST HIM THE JOB AT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. THIS MASSIVE BACKYARD PARTY THAT DREW AROUND 1000 PEOPLE IN THIS SMALL TOWN APPARENTLY PROMPTED THE FIREFIGHTER’S RANT ON FACEBOOK. POLICE BROKE UP THE BASH AND A FEW DAYS LATER, THE FIRE CHIEF SAYS FIREFIGHTER KYLE GRENIER POSTED THIS RACIALLY CHARGED MESSAGE: “I CAN SEE THE NEXT FIRE CALL WILL BE THIS HOUSE ON FIRE AND I’LL MAKE SURE I CAN’T FIND THE HYDRANT, LOL.” JUST MAKE SURE NO WATER SO NO MORE HOUSE PARTY’S WITH BLACK BOSTON PEOPLE.>>I THINK IT’S CRAZY, 2016 RACISM STILL EXISTS. IT’S JUST MIND BLOWIN>>BRANDON LOCHARD HOSTED THE PARTY. HE SAYS THE POST IS DISAPPOINTING.>>I THINK HIS COMMENTS WERE INSENSITIVE AND THREATENING. DIDN’T THINK IT WAS A JOKE AT ALL.>>FIRE CHIEF I THINK HE’S SORRY NOW, BUT IT’S TOO LATE. THE FIRE CHIEF SWIFTLY BOOTED GRENIER FROM DEPARTMENT WHEN HE SAW THE POSTS. HE’S BEEN AN ON CALL MEMBER HERE FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS AND HE GETS HIGH PRAISE FROM SUPERIORS. BUT THE CHIEF SAYS HE HAS NO TOLERANCE FOR INFLAMMATORY STATEMENTS.>>I THINK FIREFIGHTERS ARE

  • It's always the same b.s. people say owe it's not part of are policies or training. Also if discrimination is illegal against schools housing and employment opportunities. Why then for all of these is it asked . On all applications?

  • His comments may have been insensitive but I also believe that party was insensitive to you neighbors. That's entirely too many people for a house party. Looked like a Lil Wayne concert at a coliseum.

  • You can invite people to a party and they’ll invite people as well and so on, all we can do is learn not to do it next time tell your friends not to invite anyone that you don’t know so it doesn’t turn out to be such a large gathering. Now that being said you should not be saying stuff like that online, he got high praises from his superiors on the job and got high boot in the butt too when he started that racist rant.

  • UNBELIEVABLE SO YOU WOULD KILL PEOPLE ON PURPOSE WOWWW!!! He went to far when he stated he would let the house burn and hope there was no WARTER to put it out;I GUESS I WANTED TO BELIEVE PEOPLE COULD BE SO FULL OF HATE,but I guess I was wrong!!🤷🏽‍♀️
