A 911 operator from Dallas named April Sims made some posts on Facebook that got her fired.
Here is one of the posts.
Here is a news report:
Though not an excuse, her friend said she just had a bad day indicating that her mental state wasn’t exactly in tact.
Another post appears to reference a specific call the operator received.
"You want to call 911 cause your boyfriend put his hands on you and you want to press charges when you don’t even know his real name?!" the post said. "Sure lets make a police report for Dino, that is his street name."
"I can count on one hand the black people I know who aren’t selfish," another post said.
After we brought the postings to the Dallas Police Department’s attention, they issued a statement Wednesday afternoon saying Sims was terminated for violating the terms of the department’s social media policy.
