Former police lieutenant William Kelly is asking for his job back after the Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal. Norfolk, Virginia, police fired Kelly in April after he made an anonymous donation to a defense fund for Rittenhouse. Hackers outed what Kelly had wanted to be an anonymous donation, and the Norfolk police department then fired him.
It makes sense that Kelly would want his job back. It also brings up the real-life consequences of giving into an electronic mob. Kelly lost his job because of a $25 donation along with a short statement: “God bless. Thank you for your courage. Keep your head up. You’ve done nothing wrong.”
Regardless of what you personally think, the jury found Rittenhouse not guilty. Should the police have given into the hackers and the internet mob? Or should they have chalked it up to a difference of opinion?
It’s easy to sit around and discuss (or tweet) about someone else’s firing. But, what happens when your employee says or does something you disagree with? What happens when something happens that Twitter hates? Here are some steps to think through.
