Ohio Officer Fired After Threatening to Kill Black Police Chief

A white officer of Nelsonville, Ohio was fired after posting a racist Facebook message about Hocking College Black Interim Police Chief, Tiffany Tims.

Former officer Joshua Braglin posted a social media meme of Tims sitting in the car with the caption, “Acting Chief Timms (sic)… Chicken and Waffles baby.” Two other officers also confirmed that Braglin said, during an off-duty discussion, that he would “beat that n***er to death with a banana” before Tims would become the permanent police chief of the college.

The suggestion to fire Braglin came from the City Council who unanimously voted 6-0.

Protesters were present and chanted “Black Lives Matter” before the final conclusion was made on Wednesday.

“I am glad that they decide to support the recommendation that this officer be fired,” said Andrea Reany, one of the protesters who agreed with the decision.

She continued, “He is not only a threat to the residents of color and the students of color that live in Nelsonville but every resident of Nelsonville.”

On May 25, the NAACP of Dayton also called for the termination of Braglin who was initially placed on an unpaid leave of absence.

“The fact that it took so long is concerning to me and I think that it means that there are more problems within the police force,” protester Tyler Barton told the news station.

Braglin’s derogatory remarks have been under investigation since November 2017. The city council president Ed Mash, said they are now considering social media policies for officers.
