In my opinion, there is no legitimate reason for county EMS director Brian Beasley to suffer suspension for doing an excellent job. Almost every week, Brian is on TV bringing in grants to Gadsden County. Unlike the US Army, whose mission is to kill, Beasley's job is to save lives.
If an ambulance reaches a citizen's residence late, it's not Beasley's fault.
Beasley does not need to be home, but rather on the job so that he can continue to be instrumental in saving lives.
Editorial Note: When contacted regarding the suspension of Beasley, as implied by this letter, County Administrator Johnny Williams said, "This is a personnel matter and we choose not to discuss personnel matters. This for the protection of the individual and ourselves."
