Shamed Facebook poster loses her job
Boston Herald ^ | November 21, 2012 | Jessica Heslam

Posted on 11/21/2012 8:20:46 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

Lindsey Stone — the Plymouth woman taking an online beating for posting a photo of herself flipping the bird at Arlington National Cemetery on Facebook — has lost her job.

“Lindsey resigned and we accepted her resignation,” LIFE Inc. CEO Diane Enochs told the Herald tonight.

LIFE Inc. of Hyannis — a Cape Cod nonprofit that helps adults with special needs — announced tonight that Stone, along with the woman who snapped the offending photo, are not working there.

Ironically, the formal announcement was made on Facebook.

Two FB narcissists get their 15,000 “likes” of fame.

Have fun paying the bills with that, be-yotches.

Actions have consequences. Stupidly posting them on the internet have even more.

Arlington National Cemetery deserves better than this creep. Why the h*** was she there in the first place?

Of course she has the right to be an asshole. Glad her employer exercised its right to can her disgraceful ass.

On this Thanksgiving, I’m giving thanks to all whom served!!!

She’s 30 & living home with mom & dad....so they will keep paying the bils for now. Typical Obama trash voter. Millions of single women like her gave us 4 more years of this nightmare.

she mocks what she does not understand

losing her job is a consequence of her actions... now she should take it upon herself to educate herself on the sacrifices of those who wear the uniform

schools and parents no longer require children to sacrifice anything for their fellow man. she has no idea what it means to give anything up for someone else

the fundamental lessons of childhood that result in compassionate human beings are being lost..and we see the results

Disrespect meets a desire for publicity. I wonder who she blames for her life’s destruction.

She had no idea that she was going to hurt anybody.

How can you be so incredibly obtuse as to not realize people would be deeply offended? Which begs the next question- why would you yourself think a stunt like that was funny in the first place? That you would go to a place like that and behave like a 7th grader on a boring field trip is something you should ponder, dingbat.

I stood once when I was in high school (Ft. Hunt, class of ‘75)in awe of the soldiers guarding the Tomb of The Unknown Soldiers.

It would never have occurred to me to disrespect that place, or defile their honor.

And, I wasn’t a good or saved kid at that point in life.

She is an idiot. Probably can tell you all you need to know about pop culture and who is on Jon Stewart's show. It is time to require women to register for the military draft at the age of 18, similar to men.

7 years ago I was there. I didn’t get closer than the sidewalk because I honestly didn’t feel comfortable going into the viewing area because I was wearing a tshirt and jeans.

Talk about being on two ends of the scale!

Not so much to be drafted but to be aware of a military draft as is required to receive college loans.

I was in the Georgetown section of DC and wanted to visit Arlington. It was a sunny but very cold February day. I walked the route, not sure of the distance 3-4 miles perhaps. And this fool disrespects. It is pitiful

I was there for the changing of the guard as a “I know everything, give me a break” teenager while heading to the Boy Scout Jamboree at Ft. A.P. Hill. I’ve never been so moved by a cemetery ceremony outside of my immediate family, until I went to Normandy (where I wept like a newborn).

I can’t even imagine doing what this waste of space did. She deserves every piece of poo that is flung at her and more.

Good riddance. I’ve been to the Tomb of the Unknowns three times; each time brought tears to my eyes. The last time I took my boys when they were eight and four; it made a big impression. I am astounded that these vermin could act this way. They are some really disturbed people.

I can’t believe this type of firing for f’d up FB behavior does not happen more often, given the kind of comments from Leftists you read at news sites that only allow FB-identity participation. Usually with their name, school and job displayed right next to their mug shot. Never understood why Breitbart or Malkin don’t tee some of those up...

This reader’s comments above says it all. She knew what she was doing. She never cared to begin with. This was a disgraceful thing to do; then brag about it on her FB page. Busted.

She RESIGNED? Guess she could not even handle the questions from her neighbors or work peers. Resigning took the heat off her employer. Now she can hunker down with mom and dad and hope this blows over quickly. Do you think she learned anything?
