Miami-Dade Fire Captain Demoted Over Trayvon Martin Post Fights For Old Job

Capt. Brian Beckmann
MIAMI (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.


  1. I'm not a liberal, not even close, but I simply don't believe a word that comes out of George Zimmerman's mouth. Its really simple common sense, to me: You can't get beat up like that unless you put yourself awfully close to the person to begin with.

  2. The autopsy report notes that there's no blood or dna or other trace on Trayvon's hands, so he could not be the cause of the beating GZ claims. Also, readers should note, the medics found blood all over Zimmerman's arms and hands despite the fact that he was handcuffed and wore two long sleeved garments. Analysis of blood stains found on Zimmerman, detected that there was animal blood found. Could Zimmerman have covered himself with animal blood?

  3. Oh Hell no, this asshole absolutely MUST GO!! my tax dollars are NOT to be spent on a scumbag like this little cowardly ignorant moron! i wouldn't trust him blowing out a birthday candle at a black person's house!

    no, this is a city worker. he gets NOTHING! and that he has the nerve to THINK he deserves to get his job back tells me he's totally oblivious to the conduct he displayed in writing that racially prejudice crap on his face book for all to see!!

    he's beyond hope. he needs to be gone completely from the entire department! he's a POS!


Keep it Civil. Ignoring the evidence will not be allowed!
Thank you.
