SHAME: Brian Beckmann, a fire captain with the Miami-Dade Rescue Department, was demoted two rungs after posting racially-charged comments about Trayvon Martin on Facebook writing that “failed shitbag, ignorant, pathetic’ parents are to blame for cases like the teen’s shooting.

He will not only suffer a substantial loss of salary, but will be forced to undergo a psychological evaluation and diversity training. Who’s the shitbag now?
‘I and my coworkers could rewrite the book on whether our urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, s***bag, ignorant, pathetic, welfare-dependent excuses for parents, but like Mrs Corey, we speak only the truth.

Um, just so Brian Beckmann knows, shitbags comes in all races, creed and sexual orientation. I am a black parent and no, I have never taken a penny from the government in welfare benefits and my kids aren’t thugs. Brian Beckmann doesn’t have the right to denigrate Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin over the murder of their son at the hands of George Zimmerman just because he harbors racist views. Trayvon Martin’s mother, is a “well-respected” program coordinator at the Miami-Dade County Housing Authority, where she has worked for 23 years, the Miami Herald reports, while his father is a truck driver.
Here’s the Facebook rant:
