Facebook is Evil

One need not delve to deep in to the internet to find examples of people screwing themselves by posting one thing or another on facebook. This one stood out this morning. From AP...

A New Jersey administrative law judge has ruled that a first-grade teacher
who wrote that she was a "warden for future criminals" on Facebook earlier this
year should lose her tenured job.
The state education commissioner now has
45 days to accept, reject or modify the decision regarding Jennifer O'Brien.
The Paterson teacher posted her remark to 333 friends on March 28. But it
was forwarded and several parents saw it.
O'Brien's lawyer, Nancy Oxfeld,
tells The Record newspaper ( that her client will appeal
the ruling, which was made public Tuesday. O'Brien had testified that she wrote
the post in exasperation because several students kept disrupting her lessons
and one boy had recently hit her.
But the judge called O'Brien's conduct


  1. She probably shouldn't have posted that but it's funny, and probably true. I don't think she should lose her job because of a little comment like that.

  2. Seems to me her comment might have been more accurate had she simply omitted the word "future".

  3. At least 25% could be criminals.
