Snipes is accused of writing a post on Facebook after George Zimmermans acquittal in the 17-year-olds death that read: Another thug gone. Pull up your pants and be respectful. Bye bye thug r.i.p.
Truth hurts. They’ll replace him with a liberal wienie with little life experience, no common sense, and no work ethic and get their butts sued off when he fails to do his job and someone drowns on his watch because he was in the bathhouse with another guy in one of the stalls.
Maybe considered insensitive these days (can’t hurt anyone’s feelings!), but true. Not worthy of losing a job though. Which person was more likely to lead a life of crime, Zimmerman or Treyvon?
Another thug gone. Pull up your pants and be respectful. Bye bye thug r.i.p.
THERE!, I said it!
Freedom of speech, if you say what I think is correct.
The truth is that I am offended by the boyz in hoodies. They are the outfit of the black KKK and any light skinned person had better be wary of this threat. One only has to look at the videos from store robberies, black mob beat downs and news reports to figure this out.
Unfortunately Freedom of Speech is dead in this country... thanks to the Communist in the Whitehouse and the repulsive Left.
He lacked the common sense not to post his “goodby Thug Trayvon” comment on Facebook.
He is a public employee.
There is no way, none, that a public employee could post that on FB and get away with it.
IF he didn’t know that, where’s the common sense?
And, a lot of private businesses would fire a person for posting that. They would think it would impact their businesses in terms of image, customers etc.
It’s not the man’s opinion that’s the problem, it’s posting this on FB for all the world to see that opens him up to the firing.
Someone with the wherewithal needs to scoop this guy up and put him on his management team.
Daytona Beach authorities are out of their minds for dismissing a man who speaks his mind.
When we take over it’ll be fun to get people fired if they say something bad about a ‘tea party’ member?
Oh wait, we’re not total jerkwads... or bullies.
Oh, why do I call the parents low-life? They did a lousy job of raising the thug. Teaching him right from wrong. They couldn't wait to cash in. . . . .
What business would lose substantial PAYING customers by that remark?
We cave in to those politically-correct extortionists who simply force the Agenda on others on how to think and what is ALLOWED to be said.
Unless some of us continue to speak freely, Free Speech is DEAD.
As soon as I read the headline I knew that the “offender” had to be white. A black employee saying something offensive to Zimmerman supporters, who BTW was found by the jury to have used deadly force only after he was nearly beaten to death by Trayvon, would never be even noticed by the high brass.
I don’t disagree with your perspective, but...yeah there is a but....
whatever happened to people being permitted to have an opinion?
was this posted on his personal page or was it posted as representative of him being an employee?
why is posting opinions on FB opening people up to being fired from their jobs?
It frightens me that you think he lacked ‘common sense,’ when his opinion seems pretty truthful. Political correctness is not ‘common sense,’ and the more we become silent in the face of insanity the less liberty we will have.
That's NOT how it works...
The goal is an out-of-Court Settlement, where Taxpayers are fleeced for the benefit of the Lawyers and the Litigation Lotto Litigants....it's a pure extortion scheme to take advantage of TAXPAYERS once again footing the bill for Lawsuits for "offending" some Protected Class.
When's the last time you heard of a White Heterosexual filing an "Offended" Lawsuit?
Geeesh,Even the Hartford Dispatcher that used some “racial” term on the radio got a suspension.
I hope this guy gets an attny,maybe Mark O will take it up?
if one's opinion differs from the above, then one cannot express without suffering repercussions from the politically correct crowd, a/k/a , the lynch Zimmerman mob.
I tend to agree with you. Lesson number one: Stay your ass off FaceBook.
