Mississippi nurse wishes death, violence on protesters

“What is the matter with you people?” According to Board of Nursing records, Monie Brown is a registered nurse. Brown attacked protesters and rioters protesting George Floyd’s death. He was killed in Minnesota by a policeman who left his knee in his neck for eight minutes. Brown called protesters “wild animals” in her post and encouraged them kill their family members, to burn their homes down, and to think about what they did. It is time to take back this country from you animals. Be careful what your next steps are because they could lead to 6 feet below! Trump will put you in jail or in a grave. “I hope it’s the latter of both.” Clarksdale residents expressed their outrage via social media. They asked for others to report Brown’s actions and to send complaints to the Mississippi Board of Nursing as well as the local hospital she works at. Brown removed her Facebook page. Brown was not reached by attempts to contact her. On Thursday afternoon, the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center posted a Facebook message. The statement stated that the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center is committed towards equality for all members in our community. It strives to create an inclusive atmosphere for employees and patients to receive care. We serve patients and their families from all backgrounds. Mississippi Today reached out directly to the hospital but did not receive a response. Derrell Washington, Coahoma County Supervisor, told Mississippi Today by phone that Joel Southern, Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center CEO, confirmed that Brown had been fired on Thursday. Brown’s comments are not the only ones that have caused controversy in the state. Numerous public officials have been criticised for speaking out on Floyd’s death and the resulting protests. Pamela Hancock, Madison County prosecutor, suggested earlier this week on Facebook that the “deadly strain” of coronavirus be spread to rioters protesting injustice in the criminal justice process. Petal Mayor Hal Marx wrote last week on social media, “If I can’t say that you can’t breath, you’re breathing” and claimed Floyd died from an overdose or heart attack. Multiple news outlets reported. The Hattiesburg American reported that protesters continue to demand his resignation. According to the Hattiesburg American, protesters are still demanding his resignation.
