A fireman from Franklin Township in OH has been suspended for posting on Facebook that he would rather save a dog than a "n*gger" during an emergency.

Tyler Roysdon, a volunteer firefighter for Franklin Township, said he'd pick the animal because "one dog is more important than a million n****rs".

The comment was later taken down from his Facebook page, which features a cover photo of the Confederate flag and a black and white skull.

As a volunteer, Roysdon only gets paid when he's called to an emergency, which authorities said will not occur during his indefinite suspension, HuffPost reports.

Francis Coquelin is out with a hamstring problem and Santi Cazorla is ruled out with an ankle injury. The Gunners have lost both away games this season, including the 4-0 humiliation at Liverpool.

When the offensive post was brought to the attention of Township officials, they said it was "unacceptable" and removed Roysdon from his position.

A volunteer firefighter was suspended indefinitely without pay Tuesday after he wrote on Facebook that he would rather save a dog than a black man.

Of course this rightfully brought about a huge uproar and according to WHIO-7 News, a disciplinary hearing by trustees of the department will take place on September 27 to determine if the 20-year-old will be fired.

He's a volunteer firefighter for Franklin Township in OH and he's (rightfully) in some deep, deep sh*t for his extra, extra racial comment that he posted on Facebook the other day.

She added: "Everyone deserves a second chance and is also entitled to their own opinion".

The fire chief, Bishop, took the most severe action against Roysdon.

"This is not acceptable behavior for a township employee", Township Administrator, Traci Stivers, said in the statement.

Another volunteer, Ryan Grubbs, said Roysdon's comments were in direct conflict with the core values of the department they both served.

Brian Morris, a township trustee, said Roysdon's remarks were clearly out of bounds by any estimation. "There's no reason for it and he shouldn't have said anything close to that".
