Hospital fires employee who wore controversial shirt to Mississippi poll

Source: WREG

If he doesn't already, Clayton Hickey might regret voting in an arguably racist shirt on election day.

A photo of Hickey wearing the shirt to a polling place in Olive Branch went viral this week. The photo shows the Confederate flag with a noose on top of it two symbols that many call racist.

On Thursday, Regional One Health in Memphis confirmed the man in the photo was an employee at the hospital and that he had been fired after a thorough investigation.

"As of today, November 8, 2018, we have completed our investigation and what we learned led to the termination of the employee in question. Regional One Health holds employees to a high standard. We are committed to upholding our mission to provide compassionate care and exceptional services to all. This includes fostering a safe and protected work and care environment for all. Behaviors contrary to these principles are unacceptable and will not be tolerated."

4. I suppose technically that's correct.... a few people don't see anything wrong with that shit

If your nickname is Tiny you don't see anything wrong with that, and if you voted for Tiny you probably don't see anything wrong with that.

6. This guy is stupid beyond hope...


..."The neighbor is referring to an incident years ago when Hickey resigned from the Memphis Police Department. He was caught in a car with a 17-year-old girl and alcohol."

One has to wonder just how many other jobs he's been fired from.

9. It is Mississippi

A state last in just about every measurable category. With assholes like this voting, you see why.

10. It's like whack-a-mole with these racists

They have been emboldened and have happily outed themselves, so they need to be ostracized by society and do not belong in anyone's workplace.

12. I will almost always side with the 1st amendment on stuff like this...

...regardless of whether or not I find it personally offensive (There is nothing in the constitution guaranteeing my right to never be offended), but this is where I draw the line. He's promoting lynching. There is nothing defensible about it.

18. The 1st amendment has nothing to do with this. He has a legal ...

... right to wear the shirt, and cannot be prosecuted by the government for it.

But a private employer is not bound to that. They can fire him for actions they feel are inappropriate whether they were legal or not.
