Thank you wrote:
He's the CHIEF! At a minimum, he should be demoted.
Demotion would be way too easy for this clown. Let him stay. Let him keep his title.

But I want the public to know this man forever as the N-word Fire Chief. People might not say it to his face, but they will snicker when he walks by.

The sad thing about this is that his wife and kids are going to be caught in the cross-fire. At church, school, sports, city events.

The hardest thing he is going to have to do is to live with the hurt he caused his wife and kids. He will never apologize to them. Guys like this always rationalize and justify. They never regret.

He probably said it to be funny. He is not laughing now.

I'm offended by that KRAUT remark and going to CRY and MAKE A BIG DEAL OVER IT! They exploded to the media, and would be no big thing.
Thanks Mr Fireman Union deadbeat azzwipe! Your screwing over the country the exact same way as GM Union screwed over GM and the country! Why don't you go after the Fire Chiefs BOSS? Oh, thats right. He's your GAY MARRIED B*TCH and if you did what you did to one, you CAN NOT FAVOR HIS BOSS on this one!
Oh, thats right. You, as a Fire Union pick and choose who you want to burn! The drunken SM Fire/Police Commissioner Erick Slimbag sat in on each hiring board, and is the Fire Chiefs BOSS! So, you are a perfect example of the system and how it is corrupt! You burn the little guy, and let the bigger fish go, because he can give you favors from behind in bed! Does he give you a feel around?
The SM keystone kops like to be in the middle of a 3 way, and have their cake and eat it too. They like to f*ck their community (male/female or male/male), and at the same time they are screwing the community from behind, they were suppose to protect, like it from behind at the same time they are giving it out... They only shoot if the guy behind them isn't nice enough to give them a feel around while getting pounded from behind... It just isn't the same if they use protection, which they only protect their friends and city officials....

The Fire Chief was in a no win situation. If he would have hired a black, your "honest" druggy (legal ones from a Doctor) city officials would have burned you for hiring a black!
So your corrupt Mayor, Fire/Police Commissioner, Officials, would have turned the tables to get him out of his position by saying his black was not the most qualified, but you hired him because of his skin colour!
This is reality in a CORRUPT CITY; RUN BY CORRUPT OFFICIALS, and WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY FOR USING THEIR POSITION FOR IMORAL PURPOSES!
Why didn't the Fire Union go after a corrupt Fire/Police Commissioner ERICK SLIMBAG? He was MORE responsible for not hiring a black then the Fire Cheif, and HAD MORE POWER TO HIRE ONE! Yet, your drunkerd SM Fire/Police Commissioner sat in on all hirings and did not vote to hire a black!
See how CORRUPT SM REALY IS? They used the Fire Chief as the Scape Goat, and SM burned the little fish in the pond, while letting the FRiCK'n CRIMINAL IN PULBIC OFFICE GET AWAY SCOTT FREE!
Could it be because Erick Slimbag is plays golf with your Mayor; has cookouts with the Mayor; Who also harbours and covers up his friends CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES TO DODGE JUSTICE?
Since the SMPD nor the SMFD neither have any black employees, why not suspend the Police Chief? Where's the accountabiliy MR MAYOR? YOUR A CRIMINAL COVERiNG UP CRIMES IN YOUR CITY!
MAYOR ZEBOLCKI & SMPD - YOU'S ARE MORE OF A THREAT TO THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE THEN OSAMA BIN LADEN!
I love how they cover up every Americans rights, and make Bin Laden as the face of evil, WHEN IT'S YOU! I'D LOVE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO SEE WHO YOU REALLY ARE!

The Chief is a butt hole to begin with and a back stabber
