The latter, I'm sure. Shitheads like those guys never listen. They're usually up to their necks in shit because they're assholes who lack self-awareness and aren't nearly as smart as they think. Those character flaws don't suddenly change when they go to trial. They remain convinced they're smarter than everyone else -- their lawyer, the opposing lawyers, the judge, the jury, etc. And after they lose at trial they decide it's because of a conspiracy.

Alright, fair enough. You got me there. He still never should have served any time.

Can't get into details but today someone that I know that runs a non-profit told me he fired someone for supporting Trump on Facebook and that the reason he did that was his BoD told him to.

Holy fuck. Please have your D&O insurance paid up.

Or it could have been a screenshot with porn tabs open.

How long will it take for people to understand that what you post online can and will bite you in the ass?  The latest victim is 57 year old Christine McMullen Lindgren.  She posted this very touching missive

 

 

 

Lindgren, who works at a branch in Atlanta, Georgia, said 'f***ing n*****s' should 'go back to Africa' in her offensive online tirade

 

 

 

Unfortunately Ms Lindren listed that she worked for Bank of America in her profile and someone noticed.  A few hours later her employment status was suddenly updated 

 

 

Bank of America fired Lindgren for the post after thousands of people complained online and on the phone

 

 

Andy Aldridge, a senior vice president at Bank of America, told that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Lindgren's comments were 'reprehensible and unacceptable'.

 

"We have investigated the matter and terminated her. She no longer works for Bank of America," he said.

I am a pretty staunch supporter of free speech and the right of free association.  I think it is perfectly acceptable that BoA would fire her for that (and I get why they do it), but I think it is really stupid.  I think the whole trend of people getting fired for things that happen outside of work is dumb.  The prevalence of social media and recordings everywhere are driving a lot of it obviously.

My older sister told my father, "I can say what I want because there is free speech in this country" when she was about 14 years old.  He had such a peaceful smile on his face as he rained blows down on her with one of his thick leather belts

Ha. Just this morning I woke up to " all leftists(whatever the fuck that is) should be loaded on helicopters and thrown out Pinochet Style " . This from a supposedly intelligent style forum poster. IQ and hate don't necessarily have anything to do with each other

Seems to have realized the error of his ways and removed it. Or a mod did.

Well, as we both know, her post and it's fall out had nothing to do with free speech per se. That's what my post was getting at, is that for some reason, folks seem to think the First protects them from fall out of whatever vile thing they want to say. Now, some states have laws protecting private sector workers against action taken for political FB posts and my friend lives in one of them. Also, if I was the former employee and knew the BoD directed him to do this, I'd be at an employment lawyer looking into hostile work and board malfeasance. I don't know if there's a case there but holy shit don't let your board drive your personnel decisions!

It would be useful if people were more careful about whether they are talking about free speech or the right to free speech as protected by the Constitution. The former is a concept that exists outside of the First Amendment (and the law, in general).
