"A New York City EMS lieutenant broke down in tears on the street on Friday when he was confronted over racist tweets and offense comments he made on his Twitter feed.
Timothy Dluhos, who works for the Fire Department of New York, made posts calling Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is Jewish, 'King Heeb,' referring to black people as 'coloreds' and calling Asians 'chinks,' according to reports.

He also tweeted that his most prized possession is Nazi gold pin with a German U-Boat and a swastika.

***

The Post reports that Dluhos' online comments are part of an epidemic at the FDNY, which is so packed with white men that federal courts have ordered it to change its hiring practices and become more diverse.

'He is not an isolated case,' retired veteran of the city EMS said of Dluhos. 'He’s a symptom of a sick system. If you work in the city for police, fire or EMS and tell me you’re surprised by this, you’re a liar.'



'There has got to be a lot worse out there than me'

When a cop is found to be a racist you have to question his treatment of the good guys and the bad guys. The cop said "he didn't hate anyone". Either he is stupid or he thinks everyone else is.
They live among us.

I'm a 29 year IT professional and i do NOT have a facebook page. Its not worth it. Don't do it.

CALL your friends.

Make an effort to stay in touch.

Leaving an internet trail for someone to follow will not end well for you.

"Not me.... I have more hair than he does...."


Well there's that...and there's that you are known for speaking your mind publicly, so I'm sure you do the same privately...and he's in the Big Apple and you're in Cincy...

There are a whole lot of people, mostly young, who are going to find out that what you post on these social media sites stays with you forever, even after you delete it, and will come back to haunt you later in life.

I don't have a facebook, twitter, or any other social media account, even though as someone who is semi-retired, financially secure, and owner of my own business, I would be far less likely to be able to be punished for something politically incorrect that I might post on such sites, versus someone just starting out in life who needs to behave and act in socially acceptable ways in order to succeed.

This guy is a complete idiot, and deserves whatever happens to him if for no other reason than he is too stupid to hold any position of responsibility.
