Two racially charged Facebook comments have resulted in the suspension of a volunteer firefighter in Ohio. Tyler Roysdon has been “suspended indefinitely” from the Franklin Township Fire Department in Warren County for two comments (below and above) posted on Facebook:

Michael Baldwin, WXIX-TV:

A woman by the name of Joei Frame Roysdon has identified herself as his wife and said: “He admitted that he said things that were wrong and apologized.”

She went on to say, in part: “Everyone deserves a second chance and is also entitled to their own opinion.”

Franklin Township officials say they’ll meet with Tyler Roysdon Sept. 27 to discuss the remarks.

Below is a statement from the township:

“This is not acceptable behavior for a township employee. As a rule all employees are given a closed door disciplinary hearing that gives them a chance to provide witnesses or evidence providing their innocence. We can provide more information after the hearing on September 27th.”
