My concern is that people are loosing their jobs because a picture is out there somewhere of you having a drink on vacation or you even express views contrary to your employer’s. Does anything you say or do justify loosing your livelihood just because you disagree? No, of course not but nevertheless people are being punished unlawfully and eventually just walking away from exhaustion not from agreeing with the issue.
Before you know it, you are fired from your teaching job. You are an excellent teacher and have never mentioned or shown pictures to anyone. Suddenly you are under surveillance looking for evidence to see if you are a sex offender or an adult entertainer. What you did was stupid but it wasn’t illegal. The police did unreasonable search. What if she was naked? It was in the privacy of her own home. The teacher never even sent the pictures to any naked chatting site or anywhere. Her only recourse is to sue the police for the invasion of privacy. Who do you sue when it shows up in someone’s picture file on the internet?
It would be very tough to sue the school to take you back since they can fire anyone they want to with little or no justification even with a great teaching record and no complaints from any parents. Should your entire career be in jeopardy because of what you wish to do on your own time? These are ethical questions that need to be addressed in this cyber age. Micro Air Vehicle yes a MAV is being used by the police to gain evidence. The military uses them on a regular basis to scan dangerous areas before they deploy troops.
What is happenng is that courts are taking the obvious routes settling in chambers with judges to side with the children’s needs. Yes, their teacher should not be seen posing with naked strippers. Everyone silently goes away. The concern is that even more media gets involved and it becomes ever a bigger story and the teacher can never get another teaching job with that kind of publicity. The fact remains she was just trying to make some money , the police invaded her privacy and the school used it as evidence for termination.
You have to fight now. No more walking away on cyber issues. The expectation of privacy is all but dead in this country however, the ruling on the recent Ravi case of survalence on his roomate intimacy being available to be seen by all; proves that the taker of the pictures only got a slap on the hand and not a significant punishment for the invasion and sharing of privacy issues.
Our founding fathers cherished liberty more than safety. Our right to be free in our homes from unwarranted government searches the kind of freedom that seperates us from Syria and China or the Soviet Union and perhaps Arizona too. The kind of freedom that is associated with America. The idea that a judge would declare the 4th Ammemdment dead, is obcene. Please press in any way you can that our freedoms stay in place. The girl is still working on getting her job back but the drones are not being used for now.
