    Arlington Cemetery pic sparks outrage, calls for woman's firing

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Isn't public humiliation at being her age and so childish enough?

    She has a lame sense of humor. Why do people think this is a crime?

    We've got real problems in this country and we want to worry about sh*t like this?

    The woman is a jerk. This decisions should be up to her employer and based on her job performance.

    She was on a company-paid trip, and her manager took the pic. She has been placed on leave. That company, Living Independently Forever, Inc., apparently does provide services to disabled vets.

    Behaving like a childish idiot isn't a crime, and any employer who fires her is looking at a pretty nasty first-amendment based wrongful termination suit.

    She shouldn't lose her job unless the publicity rains down on her company and interferes with normal operations. I don't think that'll happen, though.

    Her employer's statement:

    On Nov. 19 at approximately 6 p.m., we became aware that one of our employees had posted an offensive, inappropriate photograph on her personal Facebook page. The photo was taken at a national historic site in October by a fellow employee during a trip to Washington, D.C. attended by 40 residents and eight staff. The photo has since been removed from Facebook, and both employees have been placed on unpaid leave pending the results of an internal investigation.

    I think it should be, only funny people like me should be allowed to make jokes.

    Seriously, though...I detect a certain amount of over reaction going on here.
