Joshua Jenkins, a paramedic of the ambulance service Grainger County, Tennessee, has filed a lawsuit against the leadership of this structure. In the lawsuit, he claims he was fired because of anti-Semitism from the authorities, and demands to pay him compensation in the amount of $ 500,000.
About it writes on Wednesday, June 14, edition of The Knoxville News Sentinel.
Jenkins lost his job in March 2016. He claims that the Director of emergency services Roger Ricci and supervisor Patrick Donnelly scoffed at his religion, and made a disparaging remark about Anne Frank, which became a symbol of the Holocaust.
Richie Donnelly and Jenkins called «lazy Jewish bastard», offered to quit my job and start selling hot dogs, who recommended to give the name of the schoolgirl who died in a concentration camp. «Jewish dogs Anne Frank – we are working since 1945» – the motto was written by anti-Semites to this «business».
Jenkins also reports that the abuse drove him to a nervous breakdown: he was diagnosed with depression and suicidal ideations on the background of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The case will be heard in the district court of the County of Grainger on 4 December this year.
