Should people get fired for what they say when they're not at work?


A Black Lives Matter activist committed suicide. Some cop tweeted "I love a happy ending," referring to the death as a good thing. He did it off duty. Now, that was a horrendous thing to say, but he was fired for it! I have read that others have been fired for saying things that are not even racist or vulgar. People have gathered together to try and get them fired, like the special ed teacher who was tweeting about cell phones and some guy interpreted it as a racial slur. Don't we have freedom of speech in the USA?

    So you automatically assume that the cop is not a safe person because he has an opinion? FYI, the cop was black! Are you for thought control?

    As long as it doesn't interfere with how they do their jobs, I don't care. Who cares if the daycare lady hates children as long as she puts on a happy face and dances like she does?

    In other words, homosexuality is a dirty sin. That cannot be allowed in a public servant! Why don't evangelicals get it? Church is for religious views. You pay zero taxes because you're supposed to keep religious judgements out of public business.

    The guy should have been talked to, or written up for it. Or some kind of lesser punishment. Not fired.
