FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Two Broward County assistant public defenders who reportedly made disparaging remarks about Palestinians on Facebook have been fired.

Public Defender Howard Finklestein confirmed that attorneys Bruce Raticoff and Gary Sheres were terminated.

“You can’t engage innate filled speech that interferes with this office,” said Finklestein. “It sickens me. I didn’t agonize over this because we represent equal justice.”

In the Facebook posts on July 2nd, the two men reported referred to Palestinians as “filthy swine” and “cockroaches,” according to the Sun-Sentinel.
 

The remarks were made in response to a Facebook post which claimed Palestinians were celebrating the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens. On the post Sheres commented “They are the filthy swine. They don’t eat. Their ignorance to the world bewilders the dumbest people I have ever met.”

The comment “That’s why the Palestinian people are considered the cockroaches of the world. Reprehensible and despicable with utter disregard for civility and humanity. Burn them to the ground,” appeared a short time later next to Raticoff’s Facebook icon.
