    Lindsey Stone, Plymouth Woman, Takes Photo At Arlington National Cemetery, Causes Fury On Facebook

    A woman working for a non profit organization called LIFE on a working outing, with 40 of their residents takes this picture:

    [​IMG]

    and posted it on Facebook. The result was a feeding Frenzy.

    Do you think she should be fired? I do, and here's why. She works for a non profit organization for the developmentally disabled. Many of them can't speak for themselves, and tell anyone what is happening around them and can't really protect themselves. Anyone with this bad judgement shouldn't be in charge of people who can't fight back. Imagine how many of those 40 residents may have family members in the military and what that does to them, even if they can't tell anyone? What if some of these residents had relatives buried there? Isn't that rather insensitive to them? They may not be able to tell her and her photographer "Hey, my brother is buried there"

    It took me three times seeing the picture before I got the joke. I doubt many of the 40 residents they took on that outing got it at all. No, someone with her lack of judgement shouldn't ever be put in charge of people who can't defend themselves.

    Then again, I have a special needs child in the same kind of living situation as LIFE. My father is buried in the military cemetery closest to here. My son loved his grandfather. He can barely tell you his name, he certainly can't say "Hey, have some respect, that's my grandfather buried there!" Things like this hit close to home for me.

    I used to buy into the idea that liberals would do such a thing simply because Republicans screamed so loud how about how patriotic they are.

    Now that Republicans worked tirelessly to:

    Deny first responders health care.

    Want to make disaster victims "pay" to be rescued.

    Deny veterans health care (al la Senator Coburn)

    Apologized to BP because Obama made them clean up their mess

    McCain said if you give the military benefits, they won't stay in.

    Feed the poor and they will breed.

    Let him die.

    Republicans have become the party of "fuck you". And they want to grind it in with a boot heel.

    She is mocking the silence and respect sign which happens to be in the cemetary. We can safely assumeshe would have done the same elsewhere. But yeah insensitive to say the least.

    It's so sad that reps and dems are so brainwashed that they continue to blame everything in the world on the "other" party. The truth is they are both scum. Get over it. Stop voting in evil and we will have a better world. It's just as likely she's a dem as a rep, perhaps she even "gasp" as socialist. Now, do you think she should be fired for that picture or not?

    Yes she should be fired becsuse she was working at the time. But what is she wete a long time valued employee with a stellar record who consistently demonstrated excellent judgement. This photo is her first infraction? Then i would question termination.

    Not when she works with people who are unable to protect themselves. She could be abusing them and no one would know, many of them can't talk, at least my son can't. I wouldn't want her anywhere near him. Now if she worked somewhere where all the clients could communicate, then maybe I'd give her a pass if she had a stellar record, but not in this case.
