Forgive me if I don't go all Boehner and cry a river over this guys troubles

A New York City EMS lieutenant broke down in tears on the street on Friday when he was confronted over racist tweets and offense comments he made on his Twitter feed.

Timothy Dluhos, who works for the Fire Department of New York, made posts calling Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is Jewish, 'King Heeb,' referring to black people as 'coloreds' and calling Asians 'chinks,' according to reports.

He also tweeted that his most prized possession is Nazi gold pin with a German U-Boat and a swastika.

The New York Post discovered the officials social media account, which featured a profile picture of Adolf Hitler, and confronted Dluhos outside his home on Staten Island.

'My life is ruined. Oh, my God, I’m so sorry,' he cried as he broke down in tears, the newspaper reports.

'There has got to be a lot worse out there than me,' he said.

If your defense of being a racist idiot is that there are worse out there than you.... you may be in a bit of denial.

I do not recommend going to The DailyMail often (unless you want to read comments worse than you would find on RedState), but in this case it is worth it for picture alone. How can I find humor in someone's career being ruined and their breakdown caught on camera? Well it is easy when they say stuff like this:

On February 12, he tweeted 'I’m going to give up racial insults for Lent..' Then later he wrote, 'Jesus that didn’t last too long. Fucking chinks can’t drive.'

He wrote about the fire station where he works in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, saying 'Hahaha! I work with the coloreds. For 12 years so that s*** just run off on me.'

Several times he referred disparagingly to the mayor and his Jewish upbringing.

He mentioned the incident where groundhog Staten Island Chuck bit Bloomberg in the fact, saying 'Too bad he didn’t have rabies or AIDS and too bad he didn’t bite King Heeb’s face off.'

He also tweeted, 'That’s how King Jew sees it. Ban all guns & shootings will go down in NYC. But it’s the criminals w/the guns.'

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
