Remember Octavius Rowe, the Boston firefighter we exposed for posting really racist, homophobic, and anti-semitic shit like this on his public Facebook page?
The same guy who had a youth program for young black kids in Boston, in which he taught his “young lions” about the dangers of race mixing with white women. (48 minute mark)
A week or so after we blogged about him he was put on leave and termination proceedings began. Lawyers were involved and the whole thing dragged on and on and until the Civil Service Commission came to a ruling last week that his ass is done-ski.rowe_octavius_082919
Turns out you can be a firefighter, or you can be an openly gay hating, jew hating bigot, but you can’t be both.
Especially if you were previously disciplined for calling another firefighter a faggot in 2005.
As a free speech advocate I kind of worry about this a little bit, because people should be allowed to have controversial political opinions and keep their jobs. But this guy just straight up hates the gays and Jews, and literally brainwashes black kids about the evils of race mixing. Turns out that’s not protected speech if you’re a firefighter, because it’s pretty easy to argue that he might not rush into a fire quite as quickly if he thought a gay person, or a Jew, or a race mixing couple was inside.
Either way, this guy is a penis, and he completely brought this on himself for being a dumbass. He had a nice life with a guaranteed pension, but he just couldn’t shut the fuck up and now he’s just another racist unemployed shmuck from Roxbury. Don’t poke the turtle.
