- Family court worker fired for tearing down BLM signs - June 21, 2020
A man who used to work as family court supervisor has been fired for vanishing BLM signs. The man appeared in a video in which he loudly said Black lives don’t matter and removed BLM signs. He worked in a fence in Philadelphia’s Columbus Square Park. Now he is out of job.
In the video a person named Jamie Kay, shows a man who has been identified as Michael Henkel taking signs off the fence and saying “My taxes pay for this” and “I can do whatever I want” when a woman off-camera tells him the fence isn’t his property. At the end of their exchange, the woman says, “Black Lives Matter” to Henkel, and he replies, “Not to me they don’t.”
The park owner instantly fired the man for this disrespectful act.
