It is great that they are being criminally charged, but why not a hate crime?
Instead, they are being hit with a lesser charge that likely will just lead to a slap on the wrist. The Miami Times has the details.
In 2017, six City of Miami Fire-Rescue employees got canned after allegedly taking a black colleague’s framed family photos, drawing ejaculating penises all over them, and then hanging a noose on top. In all, 11 employees knew about the incident, the department claimed.
Although the firefighters claim they did nothing wrong and have fought to get their jobs back, Miami-Dade County prosecutors today announced criminal charges against some of them.
The Miami Herald has since reported that four firefighters will be charged with criminal mischief and that one will be hit with an additional charge of witness tampering.
The charges should be stronger than that.
