Think Before You Speak!

2 officers relieved of duty for apparent threat
Yes, we have freedom of speech in our country, but you should exercise that freedom cautiously.  We live in a world where there are random acts of violence everyday.  People retaliate against strangers and loved ones due to problems at work and home.  These officer could be blowing off some steam due to cut backs and other work place politics.  However, their words were of extreme violence.  Violence that occurs often in the work place.  It does not matter if they really meant the threat or not.  It has to be taken seriously.  If you have issues, talk about them in the privacy of your home, not at work.  We are now a society that has to be proactive and take every threat seriously to avoid tragedy.  Exercising your right to free speech shouldn't end in being fired from your job, but there is a definite difference between a threat and a complaint.  Be smart.  Vent at
