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?
Nope, im for safe policing. If this guy is happy someone killed himself, he needs to find another job. Just like if a teacher said these snotty nosed brats.. get him Out! Out!
Well maybe they are snotty nosed brats. There's nothing wrong with telling the truth.
If they think they are snotty nosed brats, they need to find another job! If I hate people, I don't get a job in customer service, do i? People can sense if you don't like them.
Don't be in publuc service job. Or if do, work behind scenes.
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?
Fair enough I guess. When that same lady snaps and decides to beat up your kids just don't be all that surprised.
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.
You mean a public servant is not allowed to be religious?
When other people can discuss politics and religion at work from the left side, then the right side must be allowed, as well, whether or not it is motivated by faith or politics.
There's a rather large difference between discussing politics/religion and advocating for stances that violate common decency if not actual human rights...
What "stances that violate common decency" are you talking about?
The guy should have been talked to, or written up for it. Or some kind of lesser punishment. Not fired.
