Fired Because of Social Media

  • Written by News Feature Team

The Tampa Bay times reported that Austen Callus, a 23 years old Florida deputy was fired on Thursday. His dismissal from work resulted from a photo that he posted on the social media. In the photo, Callus was boasting about almost shooting someone. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri was the one who fired him on Thursday. Austen Callus posted the picture on a visual messaging application commonly known as Snapchat.

It was not only a photo but there was a caption added to it. ‘’Nothing like almost shooting someone to set your head right lol’’ was the caption to the photo he posted. Social media is quite interesting just like playing your favourite casinoaus site or mobile games in the comfort of your homes. However, the problem that comes with social media applications like Snapchat is that everyone gets to see the photo. Most people are not certain about is why he posted such a picture on social media.

The incident shown in the photo happened while Austen Callus was not in uniform. Nobody knows if Callus had been done anything like that before. Commenting on the issue, analysts agreed that it was a good disciplinary move to fire Callus.

The Times had a different report on the same issue. They said he was not fired but was put on administrative leave. According to The Times, he was put on leave on Wednesday. The difference in explanations given by media is confusing and cannot be reliable all the times.

Sheriff Bob, while commenting on the issue said that the photo creates doubt on how Austen’s mindset operates when he is on duty.

Joseph Wood, a friend to Callus in high school shared the Snapchat photo on Facebook. He is also said to have given Bay News 9 more information about Callus. Other people, reflecting on this soberly, commented that it is not about social media and how Callus’ photo got to be on other social media platforms. They say it is about the statement he added on the photo as a caption.
