Firefighters fired for placing noose over photo of black colleague, drawing penis on picture of his wife
The pranksters created a noose from twine, several of the lieutenant’s family photos defaced
Captain William W. Bryson, Lieutenant Alejandro Sese, as well as  firemen Kevin Meizoso, Justin Rumbaugh, David Rivera and Harold Santana were all terminated from service
City of Miami Fire Rescue Dept said the men were dismissed for ‘sexually explicit and racially offensive conduct’ at a fire station adding that work must be ‘free from intimidation, threats or violent acts’
The terminations, handed down Wednesday, follow a police investigation into the Sept. 9 incident at a city fire station
City earlier transferred personnel assigned to the station after the incident, 11 firefighters were relieved of duty with pay ahead of Wednesday’s firings
The six terminated firefighters deny the allegations against them and have the right to appeal
Firefighters union says it is ‘disturbed by the allegations’ but wants full facts 
Captain Bryson’s dad is former Miami Fire Chief, William “Shorty” Bryson, who in the 1980s kicked 64 black firefighters out of the Union
The men claimed they were victimized over their support of the city’s affirmative action program, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission later found that the firefighters’ civil rights had been violated
