Assassination joke isn’t funny

There are a some things you just know you shouldn’t do, like joke about a bomb in your carry-on luggage at the airport.

A Rosemount teacher learned the hard way this week that you also shouldn’t twitter about assassinating the newest Supreme Court justice on Twitter.

The special education teacher tweeted on Saturday, after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in, “so whose gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh.” The Tweet was later taken down, but it was reported to the FBI and the Secret Service, who are investigating the threat.

The teacher was placed on administrative leave when the tweet was reported, and has signed resigned her position. Good.

The tweet probably wasn’t serious, but it sure wasn’t funny.
