** Massachusetts medic’s derogatory Facebook post could get her fired
UNITED STATES NEWS
** A Massachusetts medic from Sterling has been suspended and could be fired after allegedly calling a group of kneeling football players “porch monkeys” and “entitled” on her Facebook page. The Worcester News (Scott J. Croteau/October 2) said on-call medic Linda Kimball apparently made the remarks during the September 24th game involving the New England Patriots. Fire Chief David Hurlbut Jr. said Kimball will not be given any shifts until an internal investigation is finished. Hurlbut also said his department disavows opinions like those espoused in the post. Kimball’s husband, who is a firefighter, also posted remarks defending his wife’s opinion.
