Detroit EMS captain gets rank back after vile, racist social media posts

A Detroit EMS captain who posted nearly 200 vile, demeaning and sometimes threatening memes and comments on social media about Muslims, immigrants, African Americans, Asians, women, and gay people has returned to his supervisory position.

Capt. Tim Goodman was demoted to lieutenant in late 2017 and given a second chance through binding arbitration. The arbitrator ruled that Goodman could regain his captain title if he behaved for one year. Earlier this month, Goodman became a field supervisor with the rank of captain.

But records obtained by Metro Times show Goodman was accused in October of discriminating against a black medic and Asian medic. And three medics interviewed by Metro Times said they are worried Goodman will use his position of authority to retaliate against people who he suspects alerted the top brass to his bigoted Facebook posts.

After the election of Donald Trump, the posts became more egregious. In one, he suggested "snowflake pussies" should kill themselves, and he even endorsed the slaughter of Muslims.
