Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

A Chicago Fire Department paramedic has been placed on paid administrative leave amid complaints that he masturbated repeatedly in and around a South Side firehouse in full view of co-workers.

The allegations about the vulgar and offensive behavior on fire department apparatus and in other locations in and around the firehouse have been swirling for more than a year. The paramedic remained on the job without consequence and the pattern of behavior allegedly continued, to the disgust of co-workers.

The #MeToo tidal wave has prompted the city council to strengthen the city’s sexual harassment ordinance four times.
