Sheriff's Deputy Suspended, Given Sensitivity Training for Bringing Skittles, Iced Tea to Work

On Thursday, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department suspended Corporal Chris Wood for bringing a can of Arizona Ice Tea and a bag of Skittles to work at the Brevard County Jail on Saturday morning. He said that he was trying to send a message about the importance of keeping personal predilections about cases from affecting the work environment; instead, his superiors suspended him. This is Wood’s first disciplinary action in 10 years of working for the force.

“His delivery of that message was completely insensitive to not only the people in the room, and the things that were going on in our community, and our society, at that point, and that's what stimulated us looking at it,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivy. Wood will be given a written reprimand, and he has already apologized to his squad. Ivey said that Wood would be sent to sensitivity training as well.

This is stupid and so very wrong.  He didn't do anything wrong and certainly wasn't going to make "lean" or "purple drank".

They certainly aren't being very "sensitive" to the point he was making.

Quoting gsprofval:

Pretty soon this gov (by way of tax paying dollars) will make sure we all get "sensitivity" training..probably by way of FEMA..but not sure..
