Leslie Anderson, the Middlesex New Jersey Law Clerk that posted insensitive comments about a deceased state trooper, resigned June 4th 2015. Anderson posted comments implying it wasn’t a tragedy when Trooper
“Not that sad, and certainly not ‘tragic,’” Anderson wrote. “Troopers were probably traveling at a dangerously high speed as per usual. Totally preventable. At least they didn’t take any of the citizens they were sworn to serve and protect with them.”
“The ‘victim’s’ employment as a state trooper is irrelevant to the circumstances, other than the fact that he injured a fellow trooper and destroyed state property as a result of his recklessness. He wasn’t running into a burning building or otherwise acting within the course of his employment at the time of the accident. The outcry and ‘thank yous’ are absurd, nonsensical, and completely unwarranted. There are people in this country and around the world dying for much less. There is nothing ‘tragic’ about this. Get over yourselves and your sense of entitlement, people,”
“Nonetheless, I agree that it is sad and heart wrenching for the family members left to suffer the consequences of the Trooper’s recklessness — especially for the deer family who lost a mommy or daddy or baby deer,”
I see a lot of people saying “I thought we had freedom of speech” when something like this happens. Yes we do have freedom of speech, she was free to say what she wanted to and was not arrested for it. Freedom of Speech can have consequences, so you should always choose how to use that “freedom” wisely.
