Firefighter's FB Posts Promote Executing Police, Terrorizing Officers' Families

Baltimore City Fire Department firefighter Jamal Brown is under investigation for his comment on social media.

Baltimore, MD – A 20-year veteran of the Baltimore City Fire Department has become the subject of an internal investigation, after he made a comment on social media supporting the execution of police officers and encouraging attacks on police families.

Baltimore City Firefighter Jamal Brown said his comment was taken out of context, WJZ reported.

The now-viral Facebook post featured a photo of a police officer standing in front of his patrol car with his hands at his sides, facing an assailant who was holding a gun inches from the officer’s face.

Behind the officer stood a second attacker, who pointing his gun to the back of the officer’s skull.

“Does it Have to come to this to make Them Stop Murdering and Terrorizing Us?” the image read.

The veteran firefighter chimed in that he agreed with the post, then suggested that the families of law enforcement officers should also be attacked.

“Yes. We will also have to brutalize there family, people and love ones the same way they do ours,” Brown wrote.

Many social media users blasted Brown for his comment – especially considering the fact that he is a public servant who has worked alongside police officers for the past two decades.

Screenshots of the post went viral, drawing the attention of fire department officials who have since opened an investigation into the incident, the firefighter’ union president confirmed, according to WJZ.

Brown claimed that his comment has been blown out of proportion.

“My intent, it wasn’t malicious at all. It was just, I replied to a post and it was taken completely out of character,” Brown told WJZ in an interview.

“I apologize for offending anyone that was offended,” he added.

Brown did not say what he intended to accomplish by posting the comment, and did not offer an explanation regarding how he believed his words were misconstrued.

Social media users also criticized Brown for a Nov. 6 post where he appeared to support erroneous claims that only police kill black people.

“We work hand-in-hand with the Baltimore City police department,” he told WJZ. “We are co-workers. We may work in different departments, but we are co-workers.”

Baltimore City Fire Department spokesperson Blair Skinner said that Brown’s comment is not indicative of the beliefs of the department or its members.

“Our men and women of the Baltimore City Fire Department and the Baltimore City Police Department, we are all brothers and sisters in blue and we are public servants here to serve the city of Baltimore,” Baltimore City Fire Department spokesperson Blair Skinner told WJZ.

Brown remains employed pending the outcome of the investigation.

I am a retired fire fighter of 30 years and I can't count on both hands the number of times our brothers in blue have bailed us out of bad situations! For a brother firefighter to post something like that is sickening. He should be fired!

This is absolutely sickening, there is no way to justify the comments Jamal Brown made, he should be terminated. I work in Baltimore, I agree if he wasn't Union any other employer would have terminated him. Shame on Baltimore City FD, for not taking care of this swiftly!

On the image with the cop you see how tactically efficient the blacks are at shooting since they both stand in line with each other's fire. Shooting one another is what they are most skillful at.

Sick and tired of blacks always claiming this “fact” even though we all know it is a FALSEHOOD. When will they finally admit that it is a lie and has been perpetuated by Obama during his time in office? Dude’s been gone 2 years and the division and hatred he flames the fire to is still going strong. Ready for it to end!

How can anyone take his comment out of context? Was pretty clear to me.

I'm guessing this guy was a 20 year coward fireman than never showed up to any big fires. Most cops, firemen and EMTs get along quite well, considering they're at the scenes of lots of the same emergencies. But if you're a hater you're gonna hate I guess. If he responds to calls he also sees first hand what happens. If everything is fair he should be instantly fired, as would people of any other race.

True....YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID! HE IS SORRY FOR OFFENDING ANYONE??? DUDE, THAT IS NOT THE DEFINITION OF OFFENDING ANYONE! YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ATTACKING AND HARMING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING AND THEIR FAMILIES! YOU CANNOT BE TRUSTED AND YOU SHOULD NOT BE A PUBLIC SERVANT AT ALL. Another low life idiot might take your words and do just that what you suggested to do then you should be accountable. What I saw on that post is not just about a police officer IT IS A WHITE PERSON POLICE OFFICER AND TWO BLACK PERSONS. IT SAD WE ARE WAY FAR IN THE MILLENNIAL NEW GENERATIONS. BUT MANY PEOPLE STILL PROMOTING HATES INSTEAD OF BEING THANKFUL FOR THOSE TRUE HEROES THAT MAKES THE CHANGES OF THIS COUNTRY HISTORY. STOP THE HATE, IT IS 2019 IN A FEW WEEKS AS YOU CAN SEE NO MATTER HOW MUCH HATRED YOU HAVE BLACK SKIN PEOPLE STILL AROUND, WHITE SKIN PEOPLE, US FREAKING BROWN ASIANS PEOPLE FROM ASIA STILL AROUND AND SPANISH OR MEXICAN PEOPLE STILL AROUND. WTF? WTH? Are we killing each other for here in America? You are a citizen in this country then you are an American and we should be proud being here compare to many other countries that do not have the freedom and opportunities like what we have here. My apology things like this is saddened me. You cannot change the past but the past can never be forgotten. Violence it is not the answer and many of those people sacrifices and work so hard to make a change in this country to make it better for everybody, promoting violence it is not the way you represent them or to pay them back.

Niles Ford Fire Chief -City of Baltimore Niles.Ford@baltimorecity.gov Phone (410) 396-3083

Dear Chief Ford;

As a 30 year veteran paramedic and the father of a police officer who lays his life on the line daily, I read with utter disgust the outrageous anti-cop comments posted on social media by one of your fire fighters, JAMAL BROWN.

Chief, I can not begin to convey what a sickening disgrace this man is to your department.

Please take action to speedily purge him from your ranks, and restore public confidence by making his firing as public as possible.

The fire service, EMS, and police are a brotherhood.

We have, as you well know, often thankless, extremely dangerous, and sometimes deadly jobs.

We all put our lives on the line and are on the same team.

We must stick together, and we must have each other’s backs.

This clown is cancer.

Please Chief, do the right thing -get rid of him.

Sincerely,

James P. Hilton 1860 Barnett Shoals Road Athens, Georgia 30605 (678) 895-4278 Jimhilton911@yahoo.com

If he has a job after this it's because of, well, Baltimore racist leaders.

His anti-Cop endorsement just fuels the Cop hatters up. The Blacks that moved on in life to make a good life for themselves need to help educate those who are stuck in the long past to know that if they put a true effort towards moving forward being successful and independent which will help build confidence and more.

Shows how stupid he is, doesn't even have grasp of English language; "there" should be "their." If this was some conservative person making a political statement, his Facebook account would be suspended. This guy is just a street thug who probably got into fire work 20 years ago under affirmative action...

ATF should check this pos gun registration record based on the direct threats made on social media. Next the red flag law should take effect and the seizure of any and all guns should occur. If he has registered guns of which he cannot produce, should also bring additional charges and further investigation. If this was a BCPD Officer, they would be suspended and charged immediately. Protests would follow and their life would be destroyed. Fact is this is Baltimore so don’t look for anything to happen other than hopefully Karma.

I cannot believe that everyone thinks he should ONLY be fired. He should be shut up for good and all in a mental institution or whatever works. This is an ABOMINATION...he should not be allowed to continue walking the streets.

No reason why he should remain a firefighter if he would rather take lives than save them.
