Be careful just how you vent online is the lesson from this story pointed out by reader kungfugleek, from which he excerpts: “A University of Minnesota student has been banned from the Twin Cities campus after three of her instructors felt threatened by some of her Facebook postings. Amanda Tatro was patted down and questioned by campus police when she got to class Monday. The 29-year-old mortuary science student had posted comments on her Facebook page after breaking up with her boyfriend. She told her Facebook friends she wanted to stab a ‘certain someone in the throat’ with an embalming instrument. Tatro said she was ‘looking forward to Monday’s embalming therapy.’ When the instructors learned of the postings, they contacted police.” The Star-Tribune‘s account offers more detail.
