The employee responsible for issuing the false ballistic warning in Hawaii has been terminated. It appears that the Hawaiian is attempting to placate public outrage by firing the employee deemed to be responsible. They also said they fired the employee’s manager.
Immediately after the faux pas the Hawaiian emergency management agency stated that the alert was sent in error and they probably thought they could allay the public’s sentiment by saying they have transferred the employee to another position but they didn’t terminate the employee. They played on the sympathy of the public by reverberating that the employee made a mistake. It didn’t work and now they feel that firing the employee will quell the anger.
If the outrage persist, will the agency in toto be terminated? These are some of the reason why the public has little trust of any governmental agency.
