While I am in no way defending Shannon Burke, I find it peculiar that you would endorse the firing of a person who has been CHARGED with a crime but has not yet had his day in court. Yes, from what I see in the paper, he appears guilty. But how would you feel if YOU were accused of a crime you did not commit, and before you were able to prove your innocence, you were fired from your job.
If by some chance Burke did not commit this crime, could Clear Channel be liable in a wrongful termination suit?
I just don't like the thought that someone could be fired BEFORE being convicted of a crime.
Well like your post says "Fired before being convicted", you do not know what was in his contract with Clear Channel so to judge that part is just as wrong. Must Companies will not tolerate even an arrest. So let us just see how the dice roll.

You're saying MOST companies will fire you for being arrested? Where did you get this statistic? I find that to be highly unlikely. Arrest does not equal guilt. I highly doubt MOST companies would want to fire valuable employees unless they KNOW the employee committed a crime.

Shannon didnt' change when he went to FM, management came down on him and so he talked much less about politics, but it's not like he ran out and got tattoos when he went to real radio. He's been like that for quite a while; people listening on AM just didn't figure that the articulate baritone was coming from a tattooed biker. Shows the whole not judging book by cover deal.
