Apparently, male firefighters are good with fire but not good enough with harassment complaints. And that is because firefighters have the evil “paramilitaristic model”!! And obviously, there aren’t enough female firefighters in Ontario! Unacceptable!!
In Ottawa, only two per cent of the city’s 1,000 firefighters are women, but Gerry Pingitore, the city’s fire chief, is trying to change this statistic.
Ottawa runs a camp for young girls ages 15-19 called Camp FFIT (Female Firefighters in Training), and Pingitore hopes it will encourage more women to join the profession.
But, he says, the reality is that firefighters are better trained to deal with danger than workplace complaints.
“Any one of my officers at the fire station could take their crew into a hazardous environment like a house fire and bring them out safely onto the sidewalk after they’ve done their job,” Pingitore says.
“Ask that same officer to deal with a harassment claim, it’s very difficult for that individual to do. We have to give them the tools and the ability to deal with those types of issues, there’s no question about it.”
But firefighters are not the only ones who are, as SJWs would say, problematic. “Cops often sexually assault civilians” and Patricia Arquette on Twitter says “I know most police are not rapists. But when cops do this they should get an extra 10 years for abuse of power”
“By now, most Americans know the country has a glaring problem with police brutality and excessive force, especially against people of color. Virtually every week, a new video emerges of an unarmed black person being roughed up by cops under questionable circumstances. And one of the worst things about this dire state of affairs is that, at least until a few news organizations began trying to track police killings recently, we have no comprehensive database of the tragedies.
If that weren’t enough, the United States is also plagued by an even less visible scourge of cops abusing their power to coerce sex from vulnerable citizens, according to a year-long Associated Press investigation released this week.
Here’s what I think. If crimes have been committed, there needs to be an investigation and the law needs to be applied. That’s why we have laws. If somebody breaks the law and the investigation proves it, they need to pay, But constantly demonizing the police force, firefighters and all of those who sacrifice their lives for us is against humanity and destroys society.
