During the Supreme Court confirmation process, the Kavanaugh family faced many threats from extremists on the left. And once Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed, another leftist seemed to go over the edge encouraging people on social media to kill him.
What’s worse on top of that is the job that she holds. She works with special education children. She’s variously identified in reports as a “special education teacher” or “paraprofessional” (teacher’s aide).
From Washington Times:
A special education teacher in Minnesota may soon receive some “special” attention by federal law enforcement officials after calling for the killing of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.
Intermediate School District 917 has placed Samantha Ness on paid administrative leave for a tweet, now deleted, which encouraged the assassination of the newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court.
“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” Ms. Ness wrote Saturday after senators voted to confirm President Trump’s nominee to the high court.
Needless to say, that sparked a lot of attention on Twitter and multiple complaints were called into the Rosemount school district after people figured out who she was.
“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee,” Superintendent Mark Zuzek said in a statement, the Minnesota Star Tribune reported Monday. “The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.”
She apparently works in the Alliance Education Center with special education children.
Zuzek said that because of the law they were limited as to what they could comment on about her actions or how they would proceed.
Minnesotans were not happy with her comments.
“That’s messed up,” Matt Bleuw said of the tweet. “I don’t think you should be inciting violence because someone might actually do it.”
People across the metro are reacting.
“There is no time for people to think, they just tweet,” Mary Jo said.
“Why this teacher would be saying something like that – it’s crazy,” Jeff Husady added.
Most agreed that the tweet’s content was questionable.
“Being a teacher is even worse because people look up to her and she said some messed up stuff, so I think it’s wrong,” Bleuw said.
The FBI has been notified and is investigating as is the school district.
Ness has not been arrested or charged.
