Faith Linthicum

The California nurse who was fired after saying Stephon Clark deserved to be killed by police has raised more than $20,000 from a GoFundMe campaign that she set up to pay her bills.

Faith Linthicum was fired from Kaiser Permanente after she posted a comment on Facebook about the March 18 Sacramento police killing of Clark, 22, who was unarmed when two cops mistook his cellphone for a gun and shot him multiple times in his grandparents’ backyard.

“Yeah but he was running from the police jumping over fences and breaking in peoples houses … why run??!!! He deserved it for being stupid,” Linthicum wrote on Facebook, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Kaiser Permanente called Linthicum’s post a “serious matter” and confirmed she no longer worked for the company. “Kaiser Permanente does not tolerate hate or discrimination … We are deeply saddened by the events associated with Stephon Clark’s death, and will continue to do our part to make sure the community is healthy, safe and inclusive,” an executive told the Sacramento Bee in a statement.

Linthicum said that she’s “not a hateful or discriminatory person” and that she was fired from her hospital job “without any investigation, and without giving me an opportunity to explain or defend myself.”

“I believe Kaiser Permanente violated my First Amendment right to free speech in order to protect themselves from the wrath of these activists,” she claimed.

“I’m a United States Military veteran who served as a medic, and then fulfilled my dream taking care of people by becoming a nurse. I was recently fired from my job as a nurse at Kaiser Permanente for exercising my First Amendment right to free speech. I am a proud supporter of this great Country, the First Amendment, the rule of law, and law enforcement.”

Linthicum says money she raises in her GoFundMe will “pay rent, buy food for myself and my two dogs (French Bulldog & Great Dane), or make my car payments/insurance.”

Faith Linthicum Nurse Fired Deserved It Go Fund Me

An anonymous person on Tuesday created a GoFundMe page to counter Linthicum’s, titled: “Faith Linthicum Fired – Deserved It.” It seeks to raise $25,000, with the proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit specializing in civil rights litigation and tracking of hate groups.

That fund, which by Thursday morning had raised over $4,000, features a statement that reads: “Please consider donating to a charity like the SPLC who fights hate instead of spreading it. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with this lady treating anyone because of her beliefs. If she doesn’t like the color of your skin, or anything else about you, will she let you die because you deserve it? She’s already raraised her donation level from $3500 to $25,000 because of the coverage from FOX News. Please help stop spreading the hate!”

    Deserved to get fired and I would hope that no other company or hospital would hire her. She should go work for the Klan which is more than likely supporting her Go Fund Me. She is a disgrace to the military and I hope they would do better screening to keep people like her out of the Armed Forces. She should never have a job just marry a Klanmen and continue on her life long journey of hate.

I reiterate once again ”As long as these so-calledcrime squad do not remain longer in school, the lives of some folks in theUnited States will be very precarious! ‘’ However, this scheme will provokeunevenly specs that nobody would have liked. It is accurate that black leadershave a lot to do in marginal communities, for example baggy pants and sandalswith socks across the streets will not lead young people anywhere! This is alsolifelike if a policeman’s brain is not well-filled, the uniform and theequipment are just a danger to civilians! Bring down unarmed people is aresidue of the worst cowardice on the life of taxpayers to support the use of thecontemptible reps of this prestigious meadow…
