Using facebook as mob rule sickens me!
The recent developments regarding the two ladies who were joking around near the tomb of the unknown soldier at Arlington, took a picture and posted it online have me thoroughly disgusted, as a US veteran and civil servant who has sworn to uphold the US Constitution.. I object.

Then they got fired...

Facebook has apparently usurped the constitution as a governing tool of the masses.

I understand that respect is a aspect that we aspire to receive and give. Torches and pitch forks were proven along time ago to not really bring the truth out.

The creation of Facebook pages to support those who have been bullied or wronged in some way is understandable, but the ugly mob mentality is disgusting and the results are often lack luster at best and serve to utterly destroy the target.

We should let the law handle criminals and civil law the others and not flash mob the constitution. Freedom to express yourself is a right we have struggled to hard for even if what you are expressing pisses off a million people. We as a society are better than this, please stop this madness.

Losing your job is tragic, especially when its not really because of what you did or said, but because a group of well meaning citizens creating a page on Facebook and got you fired..this is a tragedy, we all must bear the responsibility for were this is taking us.

Also I think someone should take a big shit on the tomb and post it on Facebook. Really what does it matter. You haven't taken anything away from that grave and the act only serves to reflect the freedoms and what we have struggled so hard for.

You sound like a true American, thank you.

I completely agree, this woman did something disrepectful, yes it made her look stupid and she was nationally attacked for it. This is America though. We ARE allowed to express ourselves in this manner, it is part of our constitution. She has free speech and can make a disrespectful hand gesture if she wishes. She did nothing wrong legally and should not lose her job over this. People lose their jobs over stealing shit from the company, not for giving the finger to a sign. I hope she can take some sort of legal action against her employer. People just shit all over the constitution, soon it won't be in the history books, so we'll have a NEW great system! If people stuck to the old system we wouldn't have all the goddamn problems we do now.

Too disrespect something that would destroy a nation in the long run is fine in my book. You must see this? What has been in the middle east fighting wars for Israel done for America? As far as i can see nothing.

Facebook, now Twitter, and whatever else they'll morph into or be replaced by, serve the same role that the Colosseum did in Rome.

Well, information-gathering actually, but they're all really great at public online lynchings apparently which is pretty close to throwing someone to the lions in terms of the spectacle.

I think this gal did it to herself. No one forced her to post her rude gesture to Facebook.

Middle East wars had been going on for well over a thousand years long before America was found.

History is your friend.
