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 shes 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.
Fire these tow morons.
Typical Obama voters.
Fire these tow morons?
ummmmmmm...two morons.......geez, when you’re calling people morons you should get the word two spelled correctly, huh?
Well, I should have said fire these two aholes anyway.
I just KNEW these abominations were from good ‘ol New England the minute I saw this story at the Blaze. A commenter there said they should be deported...works for me.
“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.
Were they blond? ‘Tow’ would be okay............
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.
I am going to email to LIFE company via the web site and support the decesion to can these 2 morons.Its an organization that assists disabled folk and these 2 dont belong there.
I had an interesting conversation with a couple of the 47% today at lunch. I felt a lot better after the conversation.....
This moron probably can’t figure out why anyone would be upset at her little First Amendment right to free speech.
Karma's a bitch!
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.

They can do as they please, as can their employer.
I think a straight right followed by a left hook works best...
Another pig! America is just filled with pigs. When did this happen??
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.
>>Im 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.
She needs one way ticket to a Muslim country so she can repeat your
act there, and really see how free speech is....
If you are on company time and dime, not so much...
Would you want your loved ones cared by such a person of disrespect? Elder abuse would come to mind.
Another pig! America is just filled with pigs. When did this happen??
Well....I can faintly remember the 60’s as a young girl. Hippies trying to run my family off the road while on the way to vacation and them constantly stealing our bathing suits at the beach.
“They can do as they please, as can their employer.”
Yep. So can we.
That’s the first ‘blurred’ photo I have seen...it should be shown in all its glory...let the Nation see what Obama supporters think of our military.
How about a butt stroke to that b!tches ugly head delivered by a Tomb Guard with his M-14?
I was there just last month. Grrrr!!!!!
Yeah, real clever. She would sing a different tune if someone near and dear to her gave up their life.
They can call people the vilest names, yet they have to edit her finger? Why clean it up, wasn’t her intent to be obnoxious?
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...
Never say or do anything in public that you don’t want to see on the front page of the New York Times.
yup they sure can and just like the ahole at Chic Filet a while back they can go find another job.The work place is not a democracy and management can evaluate your actions when on a paid buisness trip how ever they like anf if mgmnt feels you cast a crappy light on the company than guess what..Yer out a here
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.
“Thats the first blurred photo I have seen...it should be shown in all its glory...let the Nation see what Obama supporters think of our military.”
She’ll be offered a role as Mamie Eisenhower on a made-for-tv biopic, with Russell Brand as Ike, before this is over.
IT IS REQUESTED THAT... Ahh, never mind...
I couldn’t find the Mass site so I did the first two on the contact list in Idaho.
You did better than I
This is a punishable offense;
32 CFR 553.22 - Visitors’ rules for the Arlington National Cemetery.
(13) Engage in any disorderly conduct within the Cemetery grounds. For purposes of this section, a person shall be guilty of disorderly conduct if, with purpose to cause, or with knowledge that he is likely to cause, public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm...(iv) Utters to any person present abusive, insulting, profane, indecent or otherwise provocative language or gesture that by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace;
Oh, give ‘em a break. sarc
Don’t you just love people who say “I will help the less fortunate” then go around bragging about it. Then show their true colors like these two. I don’t beleive she was trying to make a joke. I think she meant it.
Note one cannot burn cross in this country, but can burn a flag. One cannot insult islam, but can do this. There is no freedom here.
Time to bring back flogging!
If this photo doesn’t p*ss you off enough; check out the comments at the ‘Gawker’ site...we have some real sub-human trash running loose in this country...funny how they all rally to the Constitution in THIS particular case. Hypocrites.
She’s probably crouching down hoping the Sentinels don’t see her.
For those of you who have never been to Cape Cod (aka Cape Odd) in Massachusetts, Hyannis is pronounced High Anus which are what these two fools are.
Idaho is not the corporate office or at least thats what the person I emailed replied..Oh well.Now they know too
Resending to your contact info
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.
