Yet Another Reason to Not Have Facebook: School Principal Fired Over Supporting Texas police officer that Bodyslammed Girl

This is yet another reason to get rid of social media if you have any sort of prominent position.
The Miami Herald newspaper on Wednesday reported that Iber had posted a comment on an article published on its website supportive of McKinney, Texas police Corporal Eric Casebolt.

"He did nothing wrong," Iber wrote in a comment that displayed his Facebook picture, name, school and title, according to the newspaper. "He was afraid for his life. I commend him for his actions."

Casebolt, who is white, resigned on Tuesday after being seen in a video responding to a disturbance at a pool party last Friday where he appeared to target black youths, an incident that has added to a national outcry against racial bias in U.S. policing.
So he lost his job over two sentences written on Facebook? I think he should consult a lawyer and see if he can get some money out of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
