“A CITY council in Wisconsin defended its decision to fire a Police and Fire Department dispatcher who joked about drug addiction on her Facebook page.”

The arbitrator said the dispatcher could come back after a 30 day suspension but the police chief appears to believe her joke was so inappropriate and “an embarrassment to the city”.
Personally this seems a bit extreme, however social networking users should be aware investigating face book pages of employees is becoming more common.
