Responding to right-wing trolls @LacledeCab fired me today. There is no job that is worth me surrendering my freedom of speech.— Umar Lee (@STLAbuBadu) August 24, 2015
There are some good people at @LacledeCab and some bad people. Good memories and bad.— Umar Lee (@STLAbuBadu) August 24, 2015
It's odd @LacledeCab would fire me for lawfully protesting and yet have a convicted child-rapist working in the office named Sam Standley— Umar Lee (@STLAbuBadu) August 24, 2015
For years if you wanted to pick up a school kid you had to talk to the child-rapist @LacledeCab named Sam Standley first— Umar Lee (@STLAbuBadu) August 24, 2015
Sam Standley, the child-rapist, got hired because his dad Jerry, a real sociopath, was the president of @LacledeCab— Umar Lee (@STLAbuBadu) August 24, 2015
I have recommended @STLAbuBadu for one cab job already. I don't have a journalism job to offer him but highly recommend him.— Chris King (@chriskingstl) August 24, 2015
@STLAbuBadu This should have never happened to you. This is wrong. Sadly, this is sooooo St. Louis— Patricia Bynes (@PatriciaBynes) August 24, 2015
