Baltimore, Maryland – An employee of a Baltimore-area city department was fired on Thursday after he reportedly yelled at a Black Lives Matter protester who confronted him about his remarks, according to the city’s mayor.
The city Department of Public Works announced that an employee of the department was terminated on Thursday.
A video obtained by the Washington Post shows a woman with a backpack in hand walking toward a protester during an October 9 protest.
The video was filmed by a bystander and was posted online.
In the video, a man wearing a white shirt walks toward the protester.
The man, identified as Jeremy, says he’s here to make a complaint about a “loud” protester, which could be heard in the background.
In a video posted by The Baltimore Sun, Jeremy said he was going to call police.
“We’re here to get your attention,” the man says.
“I’m here to call the police.”
The protester says, “Hey, you can call the cops,” and Jeremy responds, “Yeah, I can.”
The man yells at the man, “You can call [the police] now,” and the protester replies, “I ain’t gonna call you no more.”
The two continue to argue.
“You’re not a human being,” Jeremy says.
“Shut the f— up,” the protester says.
Jeremy responds, “[You’re] not even human, bro.
Shut the f*** up.
Shut your f***ing mouth.”
He then walks away.
The department said the man had been with the department for about two months.
