A 911 operator in Dallas has been let go after she allegedly posted numerous racist remarks on her Facebook page. After April Sims wrote her posts, one of her Facebook friends sent them to a local news station.

One post read: “Black people are outrageous! They are more like animals, they never know how to act, just loud [expletive]. Always causing problems.”

Another said: “I can count on one hand the black people I know who don't have [expletive] for brains. I can count on one hand the black people I know who aren't selfish.”

She also allegedly wrote: “You want to call 911 cause your boyfriend put his hands on you and you want to press charges when you don't even know his real name?! Sure let's make a police report for Dino, that is his street name.”

The Dallas Police Department announced Sims was terminated for violating the department’s social media policy.

Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway said the incident "embarrasses not just the department, it embarrasses the city.”

He added: "Number one, I am shocked and it saddens me to know that this is going on and still taking place in today's time, especially here in 911.”

When Sims was contacted by a reporter she said that nothing on her page has been deleted and she stands by every word, The Daily Mail reported.
