Teacher fired for ‘segregated’ post: Teacher Fired Mckinney, A West Texas school district has fired a teacher who said online that she was inclined to support racial segregation after watching widely circulated video of a white officer wrestling a black teenager to the ground.

The Frenship school district, near Lubbock, said in a statement Thursday that it was disappointed by the “thoughtlessness” of the Facebook post.

Elementary school teacher Karen Fitzgibbons told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that she has apologized for her comments.

Fitzgibbons said she was angered that Cpl. Eric Casebolt of McKinney was forced to resign after pushing the teen to the ground last week. Police had responded to a pool following reports of fighting.

A Florida school district earlier announced a high school principal was reassigned after he expressed support online for the officer.
