An Earle, Arkansas, firefighter is off the job for saying on social media that professional athletes should be shot in the head if they kneel or stay in the locker room during the national anthem.
The firefighter, who was suspended indefinitely, has apologized in an e-mail for a statement that was "wrong and childish."

None dare suggest that the tenor of Donald Trump's comments encourages the likes of this, right?
