EMS Director Posts Picture of Decapitated Dark-Skinned Men, Touts Trump Border Wall
West Virginia emergency services administrator was suspended after posting a picture on social media showing a white man posing next to dark-skinned, decapitated heads and referencing the border wall.
Mark Wilson, the Assistant Director of the Raleigh County Emergency Operations Services, posted the picture Saturday of a white man in a suit standing next to the severed heads of multiple dark-skinned men with the caption, “Be thankful Donald Trump is building the wall! Mine would look more like this!” The Beckley, West Virginia, EMS administrator’s post immediately sparked backlash from people in the community.
Wilson’s Facebook post shows the post-decapitation picture in the background of the smiling white man. It is unclear what era the picture is from, but the photo is presented in a 19th Century or early 20th Century format.
