First Responder Charged With Using Racial Slur At 3 Year Old At Hooters
Charges are being filed against a fire fighter for using a racial slur and spitting at a toddler at a Hooters in Overland Park, Kansas. KCTV 5 reports that an African American family was dining at Hooters for a birthday party when the three-year-old roamed away from the party.
When the family member when to pick up the child another customer used a racial slur and then spat at the child. A witness couldn’t believe their ears of what came out the mouth of the individual and left them speechless.
Just get the lil ****** up off the floor!
The witness thought an altercation would occur, but the authorities was notified and when interviewed the offender said he was a first responder. The offender was charged with battery and making a criminal threat. The child’s grandfather spoke about the situation, but kept his identity unknown in fear of retaliation.
My whole body just went numb. How could someone do that to a child? He’s a baby. He’s helpless. He didn’t deserve that. This society needs to come together. When it’s a child, it’s not right.
Hooters has released a statement following the incident:
Hooters does not tolerate any harassment or discriminatory language, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees are our utmost priorities.
Of course, it goes without saying that our policy is to fully cooperate with any law enforcement investigation.”
