An FDNY EMS lieutenant has resigned after being exposed for a pattern of racial Twitter messages, according to a published report.
Leaders of the Vulcan Society, a fraternal organization of black firefighters, are now calling for the ouster of EMS Lt. Timothy Dluhos after the New York Post exposed his questionable Twitter messages.
“I know my actions have hurt and disappointed many people, especially my family. I would like to move forward, learn from my mistakes and continue to grow as a person with the support of my family, friends and loved ones,” Joe Cassano said.
In a decision Thursday, U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis said there would have to be hearings held to determine how much individual claimants would receive, which could lower the total amount the city would have to pay.
There were hurt feelings and racial tensions as white applicants were left standing outside a prep class on Wednesday night.
A judge found that white recruits are more likely than black recruits to have friends or family members in the Fire Department encouraging them to persevere through the department’s long hiring process.
New York City fire commissioner Sal Cassano took his campaign to 125th Street in Manhattan two days ahead of the recruitment deadline.
Brooklyn federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis reportedly ordered Commissioner Salvatore Cassano to testify next week.
Judge Nicholas Garaufis has already decided the city’s firefighter entrance exam discriminated against minorities.
