Facebook Photo Of Plymouth Woman At Tomb Of The Unknowns Sparks Outrage
Boston ^ | Today | WBZ

Posted on 11/20/2012 2:43:44 PM PST by jessduntno

BOSTON (CBS) – Two women have been placed on unpaid leave from their jobs after their photo at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia angered thousands of people on Facebook.

An edited version of the controversial Lindsey Stone Facebook photo. Lindsey Stone was visiting the Tomb of the Unknowns last month on a business trip when she posed for a picture next to a sign that reads “silence and respect.”

In the photo, Stone is pretending to yell and she’s showing her middle finger.

The photo, taken by co-worker Jamie Schuh, went viral and sparked thousands of angry comments.

Some of those comments were posted on the Facebook page of their employer, Living Independently Forever, Inc.,(LIFE) a non-profit organization in Hyannis that helps adults with disabilities on Cape Cod.

“Living Independently Forever, Inc.”

Hey moron, the only reason anyone will ‘Live Independently Forever’ is because people, like the one you are insulting, cared enough about living independently to give their lives so that a worthless POS like you can exist.

Day by day I begin to wonder if they made the correct choice.

The really sickening part of this is that they go on these “field trips” and act like the Godless socialists they are and we still will pay their salaries, because they won’t be fired unless we demand it. Then, of course, we become the “angry, bible clutching right” in the press. I hate these people.

No problem, if you hadn’t corrected yourself I would’ve thought ‘tow’ was another cool acronym I’d be the last to find out about.

muzzie-style stoning is my first reaction but I don’t want to emulate them.

Good old fashioned stocks in the town square for a few days with a lot of rotten fruit at hand makes a lot more sense.

Making her family proud. If she had 1/10 of a brain and understood 1/100 of what our soldiers did/died for us and our freedoms she would have never done this. Unfortunately we have an entire generation of ‘me’ individuals who only think and do whatever comes into their shallow minds. I wish someone there would have ‘*itch slapped’ her and her like minded friend all the way back to junior high.

>>I’m going to go out on a limb here and assert that the two in question can do what they please. Part of freedom is the freedom to show your fellow American that you are a stupid asshole. And that they did.<<

And society (not Government) has both the right and obligation to express its collective outrage.

Loss of job (now and forever) should be the very beginning. Shunning of them should be mandatory for all right-thinking people. Businesses should not allow them to purchase their wares. Expressions of disgust should follow them for all their days.

These ignorant trash went out of their way to do this. Not some accidental thing they did that the “stupid card” could be used as a defense.

This is Bill Ayers style malevolence.

I see it was the BOSTON media that is blurring the photo...the state that teaches fisting to school children doesn’t want to offend anyone by showing her extended middle finger. The Blaze has the uncensored photo...

My comment shouldn’t be construed to mean I agree with them. On the contrary, I think of them as mental defectives and one of those things we put up with as a society, similar to homeless people defecating in the street for example.

My question is why did they go there?

If you don’t respect the Tomb of the Unknown why bother to go out to Arlington to see it.

These two would have been more at home visiting a glory hole back in Boston where they came from.
