Teacher On Leave After Tweeting About Killing Justice Kavanaugh

Samantha Ness was put on paid administrative leave after her school district received complaints about her tweet.

Rosemount, MN – A special education teacher has been placed on leave after her tweet about killing newly sworn in U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh went viral.

“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” Samantha Ness tweeted from her now locked-down Twitter account @lookitsSammm, shortly after Kavanaugh was sworn in at a private ceremony.

The tweet quickly went viral and was forwarded to the Minneapolis office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and to the school where Ness teaches.

Mark Zuzek, the superintendent of Intermediate School District 917, told the Star Tribune that the school district received a complaint about an employee over the weekend and placed that teacher on paid administrative leave “pending the outcome of the investigation.”

Ness is a teacher at Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center, and the superintendent’s announcement of the suspension of an unnamed employee was posted at the top of the school’s homepage.

“Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” Zuzek’s statement read.

A spokesman for the FBI in Minneapolis told the Star Tribune that they were aware of the tweet; however, it remained unclear which law enforcement agency would be investigating.

Twitter users also reported the tweet to the Minneapolis police and the U.S. Secret Service. The U.S. Supreme Court also has its own small federal police force, the Star Tribune reported.

The Star Tribune reported that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota had recently successfully prosecuted at least two people accused of making threats against federal judges.

Another concrete example of a fascist, liberal teacher telling the country how she feels. The left is always screaming first amendment rights but she has abused her right to free speech and this twit has put herself in some very hot water.

At the very least, she should never be allowed to teach children.

A teacher who wrote "whose" instead of "who's" is teaching children. Sad in itself. Terroristic threats should be taken seriously and this woman deserves a good deal of jail time. With no consequences, there is no reason for them to stop making these threats. I say she needs to be locked up.

Unbelievable that a teacher, especially in this day and age, would not realize a tweet like that would have consequences. Not to mention her apparent inability to use correct punctuation.

As the parent of special education student, I know that most of these students are very impressionable. To have this woman filling their very fragile minds with her own hatred is reprehensible. The school district is responsible morally, financially, and criminally should they decide to reinstate her.

Certainly don’t want someone that thinks like that around children she could wig out and kill one of them

People nowadays need to think about the ramifications when you post on twitter or Facebook. Making a comment to kill someone is absolutely terrible, and for her to be a schoolteacher on top of that is absolutely unfathomable. I wouldn't want her around my grandchildren.

I contacted the US Marshall’s Office during the night after I saw the death threat on my page and immediately reported it to them! They took action right away I also turned in a second. Death threat and calll them back and gave them all the information regarding the second death threat and again they took action. I pray that both will be prosecuted to the fullest.

Nothing will happen because she's a woman. It's true, they are never held to the standard men are and I doubt she will ever be arrested. I see it everyday in this country, men are arrested for a crime while excuses are made for women who commit the same crime. Had this been a man, he would not have been put on a paid vacation.

I hope this "teacher" is fired immediately, but because she's a liberal, she gets a pass.

She should be permanently bared from teaching again, ever, anywhere.

until asshole such as this "educator" are put in prison for many years this unlawful crap will continue. Oh yes, prison not jail at least 5 years plus 1 day at hard labor. if that were to happen, say 5 or 6 times you will see this liberal shit stop.

It's time to start taking these threats seriously. Every single threat of violence, on or by a politician, needs to be investigated and prosecuted.

Why is she getting paid during the investigation? She should be suspended without pay and then fired after the report is finished. These liberal folks are frickin nuts.

People like her need to be charged, It's the only thing they will understand. She should be fired. I would not want her within a mile of my child with the hate she is putting out. Special Ed teachers need to have compassion & understanding. some of the many things she is lacking.Paid leave? NO! fire her ass!

I hope State AG investigates. I am fed up with Democrats inciting violence and walking w/o any responsibility. Charge her. If guilty, send her to prison.

Giving her paid Administration leave is like giving her a paid vacation. We all know if the tables were turned they would be demanding she be fired. But, somehow they get a pass.

Why is it okay for liberals to have freedom of speech but, yet Conservatives get told they have to remain quiet.

"10/9/2018. The employee has voluntarily resigned from their position with the school district, and therefore is no longer employed by Intermediate School District 917."

There is certainly good reason to charge her with "Conspiracy to Commit Murder". Her words boldly and blatantly showed intent to incite murder via a team member. If I was the her local or federal prosecutor, I's have her ass locked up. This is not an example of legal free speech at all, or is it an example of allowed slander or libel against a public figure.

We have way too many leftist judges- the rioting loony leftists never getpunished. If a conservative had done it, they would be facing hard time.

The movie stars are getting away with saying crap like this too... When are they going to stop allowing people to say things like this... We know they probably wouldn't follow up on it themselves but they might give someone the idea! It has to stop! This teacher should be held even more accountable for her actions because she is supposed to be an example for the children!
