    NJ Transit worker fired for burning Quran near Ground Zero will get his job back

    Yes one for the good guys!!!!!!!!!!

    Derek Fenton, who sparked a national firestorm and condemnation from Gov. Chris Christie during his protest on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, will be reassigned to his $86,110-a-year job and get $25,000 for pain and suffering. The settlement, dated today, also says he will get back pay equal to $331.20 for every day since his firing.

    He never should have been canned.

    However, burning the Koran was a seriously bad idea (even though techncially protected like flag burning).

    At least it appears that the court system has some resemblance of intelligence.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Sorry I have to disagree... not with him getting his job back, but this is a crime against the private sector tax payer.

    I want it!

    But yeah, he should be given his job back. He did nothing illegal and is perfectly able to protest in this manner. He should not have been fired in the first place.

    While I don't like the fact that he burnt the Koran, it is protected by the first amendment, thus he should have never been fired.
