I'm not going to let two women stand up there and hold hands and let my child be aware of it

He might have to have a conversation with his shiatty children, dammit, and that is simply asking too much.  He'd rather be an intolerant douchebag than explain the world to the people he is charged with educating.

What a worthless piece of shiat.

Not in South Carolina--it's perfectly legal to fire someone for their sexual orientation there.

Nope: sexuality is not a federally protected class. It should be. But it isn't.

I was reading some stuff about right-to-work cases, and I seem to recall that even in right-to-work states, you have to establish cause to fire someone who has been employed there for over five years. But it's been a while, and I could be mis-remembering. Does anybody know if that's true, and if it would apply in this case?

A lot of companies might have that as an internal policy to avoid costly challenges and reduce risk but from a purely legal perspective if you're an at-will employee they don't need any reason.

Well it's good to know that Earl Bullard of Latta, SC is a useless farking dumbshiat. I'm not sure that I will ever have need of such information, but it's good to have.

She could possibly still file one anyway.
Even if a judge tosses it out, thats still money the taxpayers have spent, since I'm sure this assholes lawyers (or the town's) won't work for free.

They could proudly say "It was because she was gay" in SC and that would be cause.
Not only are their no protections for gays in SC their are laws that prevent rights for gay people.
They could say that being gay prevented her from enforcing those laws correctly.

 See the recent stories of arrests of gay men in Louisiana. http://theadvocate.com/news/police/6580728-123/gays-in-baton-rouge-ar r ested

For anyone confused about why those gays are so uppity and in your face about their rights and why people are so angry at those who want to make it legal to discriminate against customers and employees who are gay, it's this shiat.

Read further in the article and you will see that he gave a reason to fire her, he wrote 7 reprimands of her service that circumvented the city council. He then fired her for those reprimands. He covered his ass on this, at least technically.

Most who rise to the level of police chief have provisions built into their contract regarding what will happen if they're fired. That usually means a big payout. Maybe this town is so small it does not follow the norm. But they also serve at the whim of whatever dumbshiat happens to be mayor.

I skimmed the article, whatd it say, he assumed office in December? And she'd never had any reprimands before? And he gave her no warning and in fact denied he was going to fire her? Dude's an asshole even if he genuinely thinks she's bad at her job.

Police Chief, not Fire Chief.

That being said, are there any lesbian fire chiefs?
 
2014-04-18 07:18:21 PM  
I do not subscribe to stereotypes.  Lesbians act however they do and that is fine with me.  But in this case it would seem that a stereotypical butch lesbian would be precisely what you would want in your police chief.
 
2014-04-18 07:18:30 PM  
Subby, 7 reprimands are not an impeccable record.

And the reality of this world is that if your boss doesn't like you - for whatever reason - you should go find another job.

A friend of mine spent almost 20 years on my town's PD and was Assistant Chief.  When they got a new chief the new chief  was out gunning for my friend simply because he didn't like him.  Instead of getting fired and losing his pension he retired early.  Sucks, but that's the way this big ol' mean world works.

Yeah, it's not seven over her twenty years. (though there was only the 7) it's seven in the past 4 months. Either she got really shiatty really quick, or the mayor is a dick who can't find anything better to do

#1 and #3 are enough for me be the offender gay, straight, or celibate.

The allegations are:
1. Running background checks without properly signed authorization < that's pretty bad
2. Failure to report to supervisor about problems in other departments < whatever
3. Using office/position to seek revenge against another for personal affront < hugely bad
4. Questioning authority of supervisor < whatever
5. Questioning authority of mayor to look at job applications for potential employees < sounds like BS
6. Failure to maintain order, contributing to disorder at council meetings < beats me, sounds like BS
7. Contacting news media to help bring about disorder and disruption to the town of Latta < Sounds like BS

Let me be the first to say, this mayor is an asshole. I have seen this type of person in a mayoral capacity when i was employed as a police officer. Power hungry tyrants who would berate the police chief and dress him down in front of the city council. It was a horrible thing to witness. Sad thing was, the police chief i worked for was a nice guy and a good cop. The mayor on the other hand, was a douche bag who knew nothing about police work, or being a human being. This lady the story is about? I would work for her anytime, she had a stellar 20 year run, with no problems, and seemed by her support, a nice person. She should sue his ass off for discrimination and own that town.


/Salutes a good officer.

Good on the city council for fighting the mayor.

That being said, please save me from this state.

Are you really going to act like those reprimands aren't bullshiat? She didn't have a single one until the new mayor took office. And the mayor broke protocol.

I'm going to guess you're one of those people who thinks it's okay for commercial establishments to discriminate because "Why would you shop/eat/utilize some place that hates you?"
