Facebook Photo Of Plymouth Woman At Tomb Of The Unknowns Sparks Outrage

BOSTON (CBS) – Two women have been placed on unpaid leave from their jobs after their photo at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia angered thousands of people on Facebook.

Lindsey Stone was visiting the Tomb of the Unknowns last month on a business trip when she posed for a picture next to a sign that reads “silence and respect.”

In the photo, Stone is pretending to yell and she’s showing her middle finger.

It doesn't matter. Keep paying her and tell everyone to get over it. Maybe it is disrespectful, but it shouldn't be a big issue.

As disrespectful as it is, her workplace shouldn't care what she does in her own time. As long as she isn't in her work uniform or doing anything to identify herself as an employee of the company, they have no right to force an unpaid leave over something she did that was entirely unrelated to the company.

Depends, actually. If I say anything that identifies me as an employee of my company online, I can be terminated.

Since she neither died nor lost her ability to reproduce, it's not natural selection at all.

The post you quoted said exactly that.

Did she identify herself as an employee of any specific company?

Unfortunately social media and other exciting new forms of comunication means you doesn't have to identify herself by her employee before someone makes the connection for her.

Uh, this is worse than having somethgin that allows their employeer to be identified. They basically did this at work!

Some angry comments were posted on the Facebook page of their employer, Living Independently Forever, Inc.,(LIFE) a non-profit organization in Hyannis that helps adults with disabilities on Cape Cod.
The photo was taken at a national historic site in October by a fellow employee during a trip to Washington, D.C. attended by 40 residents and eight staff. The photo has since been removed from Facebook, and both employees have been placed on unpaid leave pending the results of an internal investigation.

It's the negative publicity that this brings to her company that got her fired.
