    Bump Retleo. What is it about this situation that people find so hard to understand? I just don't get it. Uncommon sense is missing... again.

    another example of how joking around can come back to bite you. you have to be careful, even in personal life, not to say/do something that comes across as questionable. there are times when we speak off of the cuff or give our kneejerk reactions, because we are human. unfortunately, there are weasley attorneys that will take everything you say and change the context to make you look bad. if you say "man, today was a tough day at work" they will make it seems as though you are frustrated in your job, which is why you struck their client, not that you had a tough day because their client tried to kill you and you had to fight for your life. I make a point not to discuss my work on facebook.

    If you don't want it to come back and haunt you, don't put it out there for everyone to see. Keep your private business private.

    Okay, if he didn't alter the photos then who did? Yes one needs to be very careful what they post but this lesson shows that you should be even more careful who you give your password to and to watch for hackers!

    I agree with you rhood. I think this go for anyone that deals with the public. Even with the job that I have I am careful with what I post on facebook. I have a co-worker that posted on facebook that he got a ticket for speeding. I had to remind him not to post that cause our supervisors can check the comments.

    All I can say is becareful with what you post..

    Another career in jepardy because the officer just did not get the message and comprehend that if you post crap on your page, it can and will come back to bite you in the backside. How many times posting this subject will it take for all officers to wake up and heed the warning.
