A special needs teacher is getting ripped apart on Twitter after she posted a vile tweet about newly sworn United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The tweet had gone viral, according to reports.
Samantha Ness was put on paid administrative leave after her school district received numerous amounts of complaints about her tweet. After her destructive, unproductive tweet raised red flags, her Twitter account was locked down.
"So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?" Ness's tweet read shortly after Kavanaugh was sworn in.
While her tweet went viral, many Twitter users forwarded the threat to the Minneapolis office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The school where Ness teaches has received the forwarded tweet as well. Many people who saw this tweet are asking that Ness be fired.
Ness is a teacher at Intermediate School District 917's Alliance Education Center. According to superintendent Mark Zuzek, the school district placed Ness on paid leave after receiving complaints about an employee over the weekend. She will be on leave "pending the outcome of the investigation."
According to the school's website, Zuzek wrote, "Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter."
In the past couple of years, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Minnesota has prosecuted at least two people who had made threats against federal district court judges, according to the "Star Tribune."
