    Black school officer was fired for repeating racial slur used by black student

    The student should also be expelled.

    "Short story.... I get called a b---- ass n---- by a student, I responded do 'not call me a n----!' And I got fired," he wrote, adding that the district's response had surprised him.

    I do not think he should have been fired for only that and don't really believe his union would allow it.

    The student is a little ass.

    Dismissal was appropriate. The student should be expelled or suspended.

    Zero tolerance policies have proven over and over to do more harm than the intended good.

    No, there was nothing appropriate about the dismissal of the officer. The kid, however, should be expelled, you're right there.

    "Zero tolerance" means do it zip number of times ever. Liberals love the clarity of that position.

    There's no defense for firing the officer.
