Should Have Stayed Under is Rock

An attorney in Florida’s Attorney Office has been suspended for an anti-Orlando diatribe he posted on Facebook.
According to ABC News, Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis wrote the tirade on his own social media page less than 24 hours after the slaughter of 49 at Pulse, a LGBT nightclub.
‘Downtown Orlando has no bottom. The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality,’ the attorney wrote, according to WESH 2 News.
‘It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs. It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril.’ he continued. ‘If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you. Disney does everything in its power to shield visitors of Disney from its northern blight. That doesn’t change reality. Disney may be the happiest place on earth but Orlando is a national embarrassment. If this is an act of domestic terrorist it is so important that we don’t publish the religion, name, or motive of the terrorist as not to offend anyone.’
The announcement of Lewis’ suspension was made yesterday, 17 June.
‘Kenneth Lewis, an Assistant State Attorney in the Office of State Attorney Ninth Judicial Circuit, was suspended today pending further review,’  Angela Starke, a spokeswoman for the office said in a statement, according to ABC News.
‘Mr. Lewis violated the SAO9 social media policy,’ the statement continued. ‘The social media policy was adopted and implemented on February 20, 2015, as part of SAO9’s code of conduct. Every employee is required to sign the policy. Failure to comply can result in discipline up to and including termination.’
WESH News reports this not the first time Lewis has found himself in hot water over Facebook musings. In 2014, he was reassigned after writing about ‘crack hoes.’
