April Sims DallaGet up, a-get-get get down, Dallas, Texas, because 911 is definitely a joke in your town. And you have racist — now terminated — operator, April Sims, to thank for it.

Sims took to her Facebook page to post bigoted, stereotypical insults about Black people, particularly those who call 911. Though her page is private, a friend sent screen caps to a local news station.

One reads: ‘Black people are outrageous! They are more like animals, they never know how to act, just loud [expletive] Always causing problems.’

‘I can count on one hand the black people I know who don’t have [expletive] for brains.I can count on one hand the black people I know who aren’t selfish.’

Another reads: ‘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?!

‘Sure let’s make a police report for Dino, that is his street name.’

Dallas Police Department fired her for violating their social media policy, which “prohibits employees from posting items or information that may adversely affect the morale, confidence, and public respect of the department,” reports the Daily Mail.

She was just hired in December of 2012.

Se News8 report below:

Sims claims that people should redirect their anger to the real villains in this situation, the Dallas Police Department:

‘You should be more worried about the fact that there is often no Spanish speaker on duty. We have to call a 3rd party language line therefore causing those citizens to wait over a minute for emergency assistance.

‘All because the city doesn’t want to pay employees more speak Spanish. That’s what you should be worried about.’

Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway said that he is “shocked and saddened” by the incident and called it an “embarrassment for the city of Dallas,” reports News 8.

“..it saddens me to know that this is going on and still taking place in today’s time, especially here in 911,” Caraway said.

While it may be sad, it’s most certainly not shocking. Hopefully, new procedures — or adherence to old ones — will ensure that grand-daughters of the KKK don’t get jobs with the police department.
