Clinton Police Officer Resigns Over Page

A Clinton Public Safety officer resigned Thursday after being questioned about things he posted on the popular Web site

... page contained sexually explicit images and profanity.

He also talked about 'white power.'
People seem to be surprised to find out that their online contributions to social networking websites are available to the public. This is despite the many articles appearing about potential employers scanning MySpace, Friendster, and Facebook before making hiring decisions. To most I offer the advice of carefully considering who might be looking and what they might think if they see your photos, opinions, and ideas posted online. To the guy referenced in the news story, I'd suggest getting some professional help.
