SOUTH TOLEDO (WTOL) - The temper of Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner is being called into question once again. This time, the mayor was caught cussing at some kids.

The mayor's temper has been the subject of many stories over the years. In fact, "The Little Book of Carty" was published last year featuring the many controversial situations caused by the mayor such as suggesting to move deaf people near the airport and kicking the marines out of Toledo that were training. His temper accompanies many of the stories:

  • His altercation with restauranteur John Skiadis at the Erie Street Market
  • Throwing a chair at former Economic Development Director Barry Broome
  • The coffee cup incident with Carolyn Smithers.

The latest is a recent incident at Highland Park where the mayor confronts some kids and teens who were fighting, and uses the words "fatso", "tubby" and "fat a**" while addressing one of the combatants. That was caught on video.

What do you think? Was the mayor out of line by using swear words while breaking up a fight between teens? Or, was it justified?
