Your 2 Cents: Controversial Photo Taken At The Tomb Of The Unknowns

Posted: Updated:

An employee of a Boston area nonprofit decided to take a "rebellious" picture on a recent business trip to Washington.

Now she's been suspended for posting the pic on her Facebook page; she's flipping her middle finger and pretending to scream at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery. I think she should be fired.

Robert from Bethany writes: "People died for her to be able to enjoy her freedom of speech. I would think that she actually makes some of the VETs happy for their sacrifice."

I wouldn't be so sure about that Robert. In fact, David from Noble writes: "As a Marine Corps vet and knowing 2 of the greatest men I have ever known being laid to rest there, this woman angers me beyond words."

And David from Blanchard adds: "Nobody has the right to disrespect the people who serve or served in the military---NOBODY!!!"

Zach writes: "I believe in free speech, but show respect to those that gave their lives for that freedom!"

Chris in Norman says it wasn't at all "cool": "The ignorance there is overwhelming. I am 14 years old and I am anything but impressed."

Another viewer asks: "What does Facebook have to do with work? I do not understand why you would get suspended/fired for something not work related."

Ann in Del City says: "I don't think firing her is enough, I think she should have to do some type of service to our wounded warriors and perhaps gain a little humility."

Finally, Kelly in Norman writes: "Unfortunately you can't fix stupid, but they can make stupid look for another job."

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
