“On Thursday, Regional One Health in Memphis confirmed the man in the photo was an employee at the hospital and that he had been fired after a thorough investigation.
The hospital released a statement saying:
“As of today, November 8, 2018, we have completed our investigation and what we learned led to the termination of the employee in question. Regional One Health holds employees to a high standard. We are committed to upholding our mission to provide compassionate care and exceptional services to all. This includes fostering a safe and protected work and care environment for all. Behaviors contrary to these principles are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”
Now the racist can spend more quality time with his neighbor, who doesn’t think he’s a racist at all.
“We talked with one of Hickey’s neighbors who didn’t want to be identified. He doesn’t know Hickey too well, but doesn’t think he’s racist.
“He’s nice as far as I have seen. He came out and helped me do some stuff. I don’t think he’s wanting to start trouble. He gets caught in a lot of trouble.”
The neighbor is referring to an incident years ago when Hickey resigned from the Memphis Police Department. He was caught in a car with a 17-year-old girl and alcohol.
“He just gets caught in all the wrong situations,” the neighbor said.”
Yeah, well, he got caught in this one alright.
Props to the voter who snapped his pic.
And to Regional One Health.
