Tldr: you probably shouldn't share a meme about killing your daughter for liking a black boy if you're a cop.

Once again I have to ask, why the fuck would you post something like this for everyone to see and think there'd be no repercussions??

I wonder the same thing.  Don't they realize jobs check that shit now especially when they look into hiring ppl.

This will continue to happen in people above thirty or so, in people who discovered social media as adults. The younger generation that grew up with social media is more savvy to this kind of shit, and I expect it will get less common as time goes on.

   It helps to think that everyone else is as big a jackass as you are.
'cause justice is the one thing you should always find.

I dunno.  Sometimes you hear about some young girl who sent private nudes, only to be surprised when that shit gets shared all over their school.  Or sometimes there's some dumbass who stole a car or something and gloated about it on social media.

As for the cop thing, I don't think this will hurt his career as a police officer, sadly.

There was also the 20 something PR girl who made the AIDs joke when flying to Africa only to be fired before she landed.
