Parents blast school’s decision to hire ex-Florida cop tied to KKK
A Florida elementary school hired an ex-cop linked to the Ku Klux Klan in a law enforcement report — and angry parents want to know how he got the job.
David Borst resigned as deputy chief with the Fruitland Park Police Department after his connection to the KKK surfaced last year in a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. On Aug. 10 he began a job at the Wildwood Elementary School, working in the cafeteria. The next day angry parents “lit up” Facebook, demanding answers about the hiring, WFTV reported. On Wednesday Borst was out of a job.
Sumter County school district officials told the station a background check was conducted before Borst was hired.
“How do they even get in?” parent Samantha Verges said in an interview with the station. “He shouldn’t have been able to squeeze in and get in there. That’s terrible. Who else could get in?” SOURCE
I realize that to *some* people being a member of the Klan is a terrible thing, that’s their opinion and I’m good with it; to each his own, but I have to ask; when did being a Klan member become a disqualifier for a job and when did it become *illegal* to belong to the Klan?
Was he accused of violent RACE crimes? Was he a convicted felon?
Don’t you suppose that there are members of the NAACP or Black Panthers that hold jobs? Do you imagine that members of the Communist Party or the Socialist Party may hold jobs too? How about the NAZI Party? Do you think any of them may be gainfully employed in some way?
Membership in any of those groups, all of which, for the record, I personally find to be despicable, doesn’t give a community the right to demand that this guy, or any particular person should not be employed because of their personal affiliation in ANY group as long as the person does a good job for their employer and doesn’t engage in ILLEGAL activities, on or off of the job.
Can you imagine the cries of RACISM if a Black person was fired and/or denied a job simply because they were a member of the Black Panthers or NAACP?
It’s kind of *funny* how ANYONE in America can do or be anything they want to be, well, unless you’re a White guy.
