Capt. Brian Beckmann
January 14, 2013 7:39 PMMIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami-Dade Fire captain who was demoted after he made controversial comments about the Trayvon Martin case last year began pleading his case before an arbitrator Monday.
The post, made by then Captain Brian Beckman, said: “I and my coworkers could rewrite the book on whether our urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, *expletive*, ignorant, pathetic welfare dependent excuses for parents.”
Beckman made the post on the same day the shooter of Martin, George Zimmerman, was charged with second-degree murder in the case.
