Local Illinois Sheriff Is Sorry For Calling Co-Worker ‘Little Fag Jew Boy’ So Publicly On Facebook

Congratulations to Schuyler County Sheriff Don Schieferdecker in Illinois for not understanding the public v. private settings on Facebook. Why else would he have left a comment on a co-worker’s photo that mentioned a “little fag Jew boy”?

Schieferdecker says he’s very sorry for the offensive remark that was, of course, public to anyone browsing the photo. “I’ve dedicated my life to public service and sure don’t believe in public service by being harmful to people. … I wouldn’t say or do anything like that to hurt anyone. … I couldn’t care less about anyone’s religion and sexual preference,” he says, noting that he left the comment after a long day’s work. Because only when he’s overtired does he find similarities between colleagues and little fag Jew boys.

But Schieferdecker isn’t the only one who needs to apologize: He left the comment on a photo uploaded by a dispatcher, which depicted another dispatcher and was captioned with the word “fag.”

Says Scott Thompson, the mayor of Rushville, Ill.: “I’ve been asked by many to make a statement regarding the remarks the sheriff made on a Facebook page earlier this week. Don is my friend but I will not speak to his heart or thoughts. I do however want to speak to my responsibility as mayor. I do not condone language which conveys discrimination or prejudice due to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national origin. Such language would reflect poorly upon the individual and the community.”

Keeping in mind what would happen if Schieferdecker posted a comment about the dispatcher looking like a “little fag nigger,” everyone weigh in on Schieferdecker’s future: Do we fire him?!

      shannon, there are similarities between discriminating against someone’s skin color and against someones sexuality. Both are characteristics people are born with and have no control over. Sure, the history is a little different but the underlying theme is identical. If people draw comparisons it is merely because in america it is assumed that most people can see the mistakes of bigotry through the lens of history and progress in equality made by the black community, and hopefully see lgbt individuals in a different light. I think we should focus on what makes us all the same rather than squabble over the differences. Perhaps you have some prejudices of your own that need some work.

      Of course, one question is where he posted it – was it from work or was it at home after 3 too many six-packs? His best excuse is to have been completely plastered at a time, so that, if fired, it would be a case of CUI (Computing Under the Influence, which is not yet a criminal offense).

      Safety hint: do not use facebook while so drunk that nuances in the privacy settings are beyond your comprehension.

Being white has nothing to do with that. Ask anyone what people of their background say about gay people. I know that you are very young so i am gonna give you a pass.

      Complete unprofessionalism and no regard at all for feeling like he will be held accountable. It is all part of the Judge Judy mentality. I blame people like her for promoting these public employee backlash against the people they are paid to serve. These tax paid servants have decided that they do not need to answer to anyone in the private sector. Fire him immediately. Out on his ass with the camera on it like a bullseye waving bye bye.

      @Jon: Ummm no. we are not talking about some resident in a town without authority. This is a tax paid county sheriff so you are mistaken when his words cannot be interpreted as fact by the paying public. If you say you like the fucking color blue, i interpret that you like the color blue as a fact. Speaking about a person and mocking their sexual orientation by name calling is proof that he is not capable of protecting and serving the way in which his job description calls for which the public has every right to expect and demand. The only narrow minded comments came from this piece of shit who is purposefully being anti gay while spewing homophobic hate speech. I doubt you can find any rational person who would agree with you that what he did does not constitute the appearance of a conflict of interest. Anything that occurs between him and a gay person is now under suspicion and it is valid to think exactly that considering that he said what he said and that he is in a position to abuse and deny the civil rights of the citizenry. You are the narrow minded fucking idiot.

      @Jon: Why is it so difficult to understand that a person whose salary comes from taxpayers plays by different rules? There are dozens of reasons for that, ranging from a duty to treat citizens fairly to potentially affecting the county’s standing in discrimination lawsuits.

      Bottom line: when you’re a public servant you have no private opinions.

      @justiceontherocks: “Bottom line: when you’re a public servant you have no private opinions”

      And that’s what’s wrong with this country. Political correctness has gotten WAY out of hand. It began as a way to give voice to those who have not had one before and it has turned into a way to lynch people whose opinions differ from your own.

      Just because you are a public servant does not mean you stop being a human being with human emotions and opinions. You do not want some mindless robot working in law enforcement.

      His comments were not to the general public, but to a co-worker. If anything he should be disciplined for making an uncomfortable work environment, not fired because he’s now deemed somekind of danger to society in general.

      Even if this guy does have hateful opinions about these groups does not mean that he cannot conduct his job in a fair manner. In our jobs, whatever they may be, we ALL deal with people we don’t like for any number of reasons, that does not mean we treat them differently than the next guy.

      The conclusion that if this guy hates someone means he’s going to do something bad to them is jumping from A to Z without any stops in between.

      The guy is entitled to any opinion he wants to have. The problem is he’s a public official who in a public forum (Facebook postings are NOT private) he expressed opinions in a way that would make people doubt whether he could do his job I’m the way the law requires.

      This isn’t about political correctness, which I agree is sometimes out of control. It’s about a sheriff screwimg up.

You have no valid argument. You fall flat on your face. Case closed. I don’t know what your motive is but it is not public safety that’s for sure.

      @ewe: Ewe…if you were to read my post…I clearly state exactly what you said. This is a workplace issue. However, it is not a public safety issue and the general public should not concern themselves with this man’s opinions. Do you even know how many government employees there are in this country, your state, your county, or your city? There are tons of individuals who work for “the people” who have the same opinions that this guy does. Should we shut down the government so that you, with your superior moral code, meet with them and give your approval? I suggest your familiarize yourself with the Bill of Rights.

There definitely are corrupt ignorant public workers but when you leave a paper trail going after someone then that opens the door for you can be addressed and terminated. You cannot compare a convicted criminal to someone who had not committed a crime and that is how much sense you are making. NONE. I suggest you familiarize yourself with the question that i posed. Who the fuck are you to tell every taxpayer that it’s just too damn bad that you have to pay the coworker your hard earned cash for the deeds of this sheriff? Maybe you should take a course in law.

      Now, that being said, this man should be fired, period, end of discussion. Public servants should be held accountable for their actions on public platforms or anywhere else, because anyone who could make statements like that obviously has a personal prejudice that could hinder their ability to protect ALL of the citizens in the jurisdiction.

That doesn’t mean you hate black people and will harm them in some way if you come across some in your job function. Just because he voiced some bad words does not mean he will act in an unprofessional manner when it comes to doing his job. You are jumping to a conclusion that is NOT supported by the facts. He made a friggin’ JOKE on Facebook!!! Bad judgment, maybe…but he doesn’t deserve to be fired for it.

But there is a difference between perhaps not agreeing with someone and outright hating them. This sherriff’s comments falls into the hate category, and his feelings probably do, too, if what he said and the slurs he used are any indication. Cat’s outta the bag. He is a bona fide bigot.

It was between him and his FB friend. I am so adamant about this subject, not because I care anything about this guy, but I care about his rights. I stand my opinion that his words do not translate into him being a bad cop and there is no proof (at least in this article) that he has ever used his authority to act on his POSSIBLE prejudices. And the minute we start firing people for what MAY be in their minds, then I’m next and you right after me.

We know she’s a promiscuous, black, lesbian, single mother…I think I may be forgetting some at this point…and that was all from her first post. Then she went on to hate on Republicans and people who practice religion. When you put that out there so blatantly it is pretty clear you have an agenda. Why can’t she just be Shannon, HUMAN BEING?

      And…I hope that bullying website goes well for her, because that’s exactly what you both have been doing to me all day. Not once have I called either of you a name or directed my frustration at this story at you personally. Way to teach your kid not to bully. Peace out.

      @Shannon1981: This is how Jon feels from his own mouth. “He made a friggin’ JOKE on Facebook!!!” He would like to silence you into thinking that there is something wrong with your stance on free speech much like people believe clinton helped gay people with DADT and DOMA and not being able to claim bankruptcy on school loans like his generation did. Jon thinks because he stands by his words long enough that it is meaningless it will be more meaningless. It is but only to him. He is blind to the possibility of abuse and the appearance of incompetence because of what this sheriff did himself. No one said this except the cop. Not you not me not anyone but the sheriff. If Jon feels this way then i have no doubt he would call jews who object to being rounded up as “puritan” just like he would any german who dare spoke up to that catastrophe instead of remaining silent. He is instructing you to do the same. He obviously has a personal agenda. He is saying it is ok to call coworkers fag jew boys. It’s just unbelievably rediculous. Jon attempts to blame you for the future of this disgraceful pig instead of blaming the pig for saying what the pig said. If you still persist, he will accuse you of tripping on acid or mental health deficiencies just to continue dismissing anyone who keeps track of how and who their taxdollars are being spent on. It is no different than legislation that is designed to silence the public. He can fuck off with his rediculous bullshit. It is not free speech for a public servant to set up the public to pay his coworker a handsome sum for discrimination because Jon insists the keeps his job to subject everyone to tyranny and illegal behavior. People have been terminated for less and this cop has no case if he tried to appeal. If he did he would not be apologizing.

      @Jon: Here are Jons sentiment regarding shannon. He says “We know she’s a promiscuous, black, lesbian, single mother” He is so ignorant with his persistence that he does not realize that he could be fired for saying that if the person he said it about is someone he works with. And she could sue the taxpaid agency if she was a public employee and you would have to pay her damages.

      @Jon: FYI: There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a promiscuous black lesbian single mother anyway. Just like there is nothing wrong with being jewish or gay. There is accountability for public employees who say it in a derogatory hateful way meant to offend. People can expect to go to their place of employment and not be verbally abused whether it is on the computer or to your face. The sheriff is making insulting remarks about his coworker not his family member. That coworker has the right to have this person fired so that coworker can perform his job duties free of harassment.

      The sheriff could be suspended without pay or demoted or any number of things like that.

      @Jon: Shows how much you know. I don’t have a kid. If it is the post I think you are thinking of, that is one of my co mods, Margaret. Read the damn blog before you jump all over me. And who is bullying you? You know what? Nevermind. Good Riddance. Not even sure what you’re doing on a gay blog defending anti gay bigotry. The trolling here never ceases to amaze me.

      @ewe: I am thinking accusations of mental illness is Jon’s default defense, because he lacks a logical one.

      @Shannon1981: Sorry, didn’t mean to put tht unwed mother thing on you. I guess I just assumed. And how are you not bullying? You called me a motherfucker among other nasty words and then tell me to get off YOUR gay blog because I guess I’m not gay enough for you and don’t agree with your militant lesbian ideals. That is the absolute textbook definition of bullying. I guess you should look up the definition of bullying while you’re looking up hypocrite.

      @ewe: I didn’t say there was anything wrong with being a promiscuous militant lesbian black mother. Look at the context of what I was saying. I was saying that since she threw all of that out there without anyone asking that obviously that is the agenda she is promoting.

      And while I can’t say I always use commas correctly, it would help you to get your point across if you used proper sentence structure and spell check. You’re grammer is rediculis.

      LMAO, I thought you were done commenting with me? We obviously disagree. nobody is bullying but you, my dear.

      At any rate, you’re either not gay at all or an uncle tom. either way, you’re a waste of my time.

      apology accepted. You know what they say about assuming. And you’re also deliberately trolling. And now ur saying lesbians are militant? You’re just as bigoted as that sherriff. No wonder…and if you are indeed, queer, its even worse than the straight homophobes, because you should know better. I guess bigots come in all stripes.

      @Shannon1981: OK…one more comment and I’m done. I wish people here would read things correctly. It must be my bad comma usage. At no point did I say that lesbians are militant. I said that YOU are a militant lesbian. Big difference. Having blogs just about gay bullying and blogs just for lesbians and your many agressive comments lead me to my conclusion. But perhaps I’m wrong since I don’t know you. And perhaps you’re wrong about the sheriff since I’m assuming you don’t know him either. You made a snap judgment about him and I made one about you. Do you understand how that works and how horrible it is for ANYONE to make such judgments? That’s simply the point I have been trying to make all along and hopefully now that the finger was pointed at you and you didn’t seem to like it you will be more careful with the judgments you make about others in the future.

      @Jon: You are a joke. (complete grammatically correct sentence by the way) It’s ironic how everyone else is able to interpret what i say perfectly well. It is also worth mentioning that no one here agrees with you. Your ego is so fragile that you can’t hear and you are far from perfect you insulting cunt.

      @Jon: Your ego is so fragile that you attack people hurriedly typing. If you care to notice, no one agrees with you and everyone else seems to perfectly understand my written message. You are an insulting cunt. Is that grammatically correct enough for you? You heard no insulting words from a cop on this blog. That is the entire point you refuse to acknowledge and completely miss. I think you are biased and you are going to hold onto your position for whatever reason i don’t even give a fuck. The point is you are the one in error.

      @Shannon1981: Of course we all know that if you worked for the police dept. and the sheriff called you a militant lesbian then he should be fired. It is the exact same type of analogy that could be used to describe what happened here. Cuckoo Jon just won’t grasp that concept. He definitely has family or friends in law enforcement and will forever remain unable to be objective and impartial. His attitude is the reason people have to sue.

      Jon: I know it may be a shocking surprise to you and your own insecurity about aging but there is a generation of gay people who WANT to live to at least 100 in honor of all those lost. The concept of A gays died before you were born. You’re an ignorant cunt. There isn’t a thing you do that hasn’t been done.

      Hats off to Shannon1981, Ewe, & Justiceontherocks for putting troll Jon in his place. Not often do I bite my tongue, but when I’m too angry to speak actual words, I (usually) know better than to start typing. [plus I had midterm exams! Ugh]

      Thanks again to the 3 of you for speaking truth to the ignorant.

      “Keeping in mind what would happen if Schieferdecker posted a comment about the dispatcher looking like a “little fag nigger,” everyone weigh in on Schieferdecker’s future: Do we fire him?!:”

      excellent point…if the race isn’t African American and the religion isn’t Islam —then its A Ok .. and still politically correct and acceptable..

      One thing common in much of the Midwest is that “Jew” is often used as an epithet –(and as a verb). To describe someone of that faith here, you say “Jewish person” NOT “Jew” because that’s almost always an insult and used with the same tone of voice / attitude as calling someone a “fâg” or a “ni**r”

      I realized this when I traveled to the North East and realized Jew can be considered a PC word there, same as saying someone is a Catholic or a Baptist. I’m sure it can also be used as a negative word there, too, but that depends on tone & context.
